5 years too long: Cult classic Top Boy renewed by Netflix

The cast of Top Boy

Top Boy is back after a 5-year long hiatus. The British series is back grimier with a more hard-hitting storyline. Fans described the series as HBO’s Power on steroids. 

Thanks are in order for Canadian rapper Drake, who networked with Netflix for the series’ resurgence.

Fans can tune in to Netflix which is now the carrier of the third season along with Seasons 1 and 2.

Top Boy gained momentum after its time on UK’s Channel 4 which lasted for two seasons, 2011 through to 2013 but was then cancelled in 2014.

The show which developed a loyal fan base, also caught the attention of Drake, who tweeted in 2014 “@Ashleywalters82 is too incredible!! Everybody on Top Boy gives such incredible performances. That show is just too good”.

If your kind of watch is crime and violence, drugs mixed with a little drama all wrapped up in UK street culture, Top Boy should be on your list on Netflix. 

The full track album list for the series was released by ‘Ovo Sound’ on September 13th, and features a wide array of artiste from Grime and Dancehall, of course, the one and only Popcaan had to represent.

The ‘Unruly Boss’ can be spotted at #9 with a track titled ‘Billions’; that features his protégé quadA. 

Other artistes featured on the project are Nafe Smallz, Headie One, Fredo and more.

Drake himself was at #17 with a bonus track titled ‘Behind Barz’.

Drake now adds Executive Producer to his list of titles. The ‘OVO Sound’ founder was in attendance at the UK premiere on September 4.

‘Top Boy’ is now on streaming on Netflix.
