In addition to his musical involvement, Drake serves as an executive producer on Top Boy. It was because of him that the UK crime series returned to Netflix after two seasons. “I became really attached to the characters,” he told BBC Radio 1’s Clara Amfo. “There’s a lot of parallels between Toronto and London. It reminded me of people I grew up with and guys that I know. I really just felt super connected right away, but then it disappeared on me. I did my research and found out it had been ultimately cancelled.”
