London: British rapper Plan B is eyeing a career break after exhausting himself by taking on too many projects.

The 28-year-old, whose real name is Benjamin Ballance-Drew, became famous in 2010 with his album "The Defamation of Strickland Banks", which won him a slew of awards and movie roles, including a part in the big screen adaptation of British show "The Sweeney".

He also made his directorial debut this year with crime drama "Ill Manors" but admits he wants a long vacation before he begins to work again, reports a website.

"I was offered everything I`d ever wanted at exactly the same time. I thought I`d be able to do it all to a high standard, and have a personal life, and obviously that wasn`t realistic," he said.

"I`m going to have to be very careful about what to do next. I`m going to have a break and think about that," he added.
