'Playing With Fire ft. Labrinth' by Plan B is a song following the narrative of a young boy Jake who joins after he joins a local gang, and is about the consequences of involving yourself in crime and gang culture from an early age.
- The music is written for Plan B's feature film 'Ill Manors' and so the opening of the video is a scene from the film. However, effects have been added to the scene right at the end when the kid punches his friend, to convey the message and relevant imagery in a stronger light.
- Images of fire and smoke are seen throughout the video as a visual metaphor along with how the images are directly linked to the song's lyrics. Scenes of chaos, objects on fire, smoke and council estates intensify the lyric's meanings.
- 'Playing with fire', the song's title is visually represented throughout the video with the footage of stunts carried out with skateboards, roller-skates, BMXs and people on fire. The basketball on fire being thrown into the hoop also connotes this.
- The narrative structure of the video is also heavily linked to the lyrics of the song. "And now that he's rolling with these vexed up thugs" are lyrics in the song which are represented in the video by a scene where the gang he is now associated have kidnapped a man and are interrogating and torturing him. He is influenced by them and joins in with the violence, which a scene also supported by the lyrics "don't have any positive role models in their lives"
