The album's breakthrough single, "Mama (Loves a Crackhead)", was released in July 2006—marking the musician's first chart appearance, when it peaked at number forty-one in the United Kingdom"

In January 2010, Plan B released the single "Stay Too Long" as the lead single from his second studio album, The Defamation of Strickland Banks. The track saw Plan B attain his first top 10 single; peaking at number nine. Its successor, "She Said", was released in April 2010; attaining European chart success—peaking at number three in the UK, number two in Ireland and number ten in Germany. The album followed the tracks' release on 9 April 2010, debuting at number-one on the UK Albums Chart; having since been certified as triple platinum by the British Phonographic Industry. A further five singles were released from the studio album: "Prayin'", "The Recluse", "Love Goes Down", "Writing's on the Wall" and "Hard Times"—the latter of which featured additional vocals from Elton John and Paloma Faith.

To accompany the release of the film Ill Manors, Plan B released a soundtrack album of the same name on 23 July 2012. The lead single, also entitled "Ill Manors", became his third top ten single—peaking at number six in the United Kingdom.
