Plan B Apologises For Neo-Nazi Tee-Shirt, Plans To Tag London

UK rapper Plan B will project graffitied fans’ tweets around London but has had to apologise for wearing a tee-shirt referencing a neo-Nazi band.

First to the Tag London project. We’re not too sure how this will work exactly, but in the lead up to his new album iLL Manors, Plan B has urged his fans to tweet their thoughts about the Olympics and the London riots, and he will get graffiti artists to turn them into tags which will be projected around London.

He urged fans to tweet with the hashtag #illmanors from July 19 until July 22. No word on when he’s going to do the projections though.

Obviously this is to plug his incendiary rap album iLL Manors, which is the follow-up to his far more soulful The Defamation Of Strickland Banks breakthrough of 2010.

Unfortunately, there’s been a little hiccup during the promo. Music site The Quietus spotted the rapper wearing what looked like a tee-shirt from notorious neo-Nazi band Skrewdriver.

When they questioned him, he responded by saying he was unaware of the reference. Essentially, he chose a pic from photographer Gavin Watson’s book Skins and got it put on a tee-shirt.

He wasn’t aware that the word in the photo referenced the band, because “I was ignorant to the existence of the band Skrewdriver. I don’t listen to music like that so I wouldn’t know the names of bands that make that music.” Check out the link above for the full explanation.

That’s that cleared up then. Have a look at the Tag London video below, featuring the title track to the album, which will hit stores this Friday 27 July.
