The fantastic rapper Plan B’s 2nd album, The Defamation of Strickland Banks went straight to number 1 in the UK Charts.
This album tells a story of the fictional character called Strickland Banks, played by rapper, singer and actor Plan B. The First two singles are love songs about a girlfriend. The songs then suggest that after a concert one night the fictional character Banks, has a one night stand, and after rejecting this woman, she alleges that he raped her.
After being found Guilty, Banks is then sent to prison, this is where the rest of Plan B’s album is about the hardship of prison life, and after many confrontations with other prisoners, Bank’s kills another inmate in self defence, this is where the latest song Prayin comes in to its own.
After the killing, another inmate takes the blame, but Strickland Bank’s feels guilty even when he is set free from prison. Eventually, Strickland Banks is in court again after new evidence comes to light, does he or doesn’t he go back to prison, the ending of the album is then left open for you to interpret yourself.
