Entertainer-producer Drake and business partner Adel "Future" Nur, along with Maverick Carter and Jamal Henderson for SpringHill Entertainment, have also signed on to executive produce. Earlier this year, it was then reported that the Channel 4 show was working on a role for Drake in the new season. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Drizzy has partnered with Netflix to resurrect Top Boy, a British crime drama that aired on Channel 4 in the United Kingdom for two seasons before ending in 2013.

The streaming service confirmed on Wednesday that it will revive the show Top Boy, which aired two seasons in the United Kingdom before ending four years ago.

The third series of the United Kingdom crime drama will be available to stream on Netflix in 2019, six years after its cancellation.

The new episodes pick up as Walters' character returns from exile to his home in London to reclaim his throne in the lucrative drug market.

Who Is Adam Venit? Terry Crews Files Harassment Case Against Hollywood Executive
Terry Crews is taking legal action against the "high-level Hollywood executive" who groped him at an industry bash in 2016. According to TMZ , the statute of limitations is not up and as such, the charges could lead to a criminal investigation.

The Ronan Bennett-created series will feature ten new episodes executive produced by well-known rapper Drake (pictured). "He teams with Sully (Robinson), his spiritual brother, partner, and sometime rival who is also returning to the same streets after his own form of exile - prison - comes to an end".

The show was a massive success with audiences and critics, with a second series following two years later - both of which are now available on Netflix. The pair run up against Jamie, a ruthless young gang leader.

What this means for his music career remains to be seen, but the Top Boy revival gets a thumbs up from me because Netflix can always use more great crime dramas.
