And plan C just an excuse like "because"
Or the word "but,"
plan c, in this case, seems to refer to not doing anything, which is why Kendrick says it’s an excuse. plan c in his case would probably be blaming the system for where he is at (in the story, before the fame).
When someone is making an excuse, they will often use the words “because” and “but” to justify why they did what they did.
