Plan B has made enough money to retire.

The British rapper - real name Ben Drew - explained while he's not financially driven, he is in a position where he could retire from the music industry at the age of just 27.

He explained: "I'm not a millionaire but I have enough money to retire from music and just do nothing. I could just buy a little house and a car and relax. But that s**t doesn't motivate me.

"I just plan on making great music and films for the rest of my career."

The 'She Said' hitmaker also revealed while he is "really stressed" at having to juggle recording his new album 'The Ballad Of Belmarsh' - which he says is 70 per cent complete - he will attempt to crack America and Australia next year.

He added to The Sun newspaper: "I'm so tired and I'm really getting stressed out. On January 10 I'm off to Australia and America for a month, then I'm on the arena tour back here and performing at The Brit Awards.

"If it doesn't take off in America I come back here to finish my film."
