Top Boy returns, with Drake’s backing

It was Britain’s answer to The Wire, a TV show that was able to shine a light on drugs, gangs and inner city life in London, the way that the American show highlighted Baltimore. Channel 4’s Top Boy showed young people without much hope struggling to simply get by, and gave a voice to a generation largely forgotten by society.

Now the series is returning to Netflix, thanks to the well known hip hop star Drake. His involvement has brought in many British rappers too.
