He has come a long way from the mean inner streets of London. Just the other day he was saying he has no money to buy a house.

Well he will eat his words now!

Plan B’s major publishing deal with EMI music will see him almost as rich as young millionaires like Craig David.

To put the icing on the cake, he’s been given a £1 million cash advance!

A source told the Sun:

There aren’t many artists who get these kind of offers nowadays but his success with Strickland Banks has earned him kudos.

He’d just got out of an old publishing deal and EMI had been trying to get him to sign on with them for ages.

The source added: ‘It comes on top of a joint venture he launched earlier this year with EMI which will see him scout for new writing talent.

Innit! Buy me a house please!
