After KANO and Ashley Walters confirmed that the new season of Top Boy had finished filming last week – Drake has now further teased the show’s imminent release in his Brit Award acceptance speech.
Wearing a hoodie with the text ‘Summer House. Hackney East London. Top Boy’ emblazoned on the front, the Canadian rapper said he can’t wait to “come home” later this year referring to his UK and Europe tour that kicks off next month.
However with reports suggesting that Drake is set to make a cameo appearance in the new season, his ‘homecoming’ could be on everyone’s Netflix screens, after working alongside the streaming company to help produce the third season.
Drake teased the new season during the Brits.
Hitting screens in 2011, with a follow up series arriving two years later, Top Boy was praised for its accurate portrayal of London gang culture and inner city life, counting Drake amongst its many supporters.
The Canadian superstar has long been reported to be behind plans to bring back Top Boy with Walters revealing to Complex that Drake was “coming on board to help and try and push the situation forward.”
What we do know for sure is Ashley Walters and KANO will reprise their roles as Dushane and Sully – and we can’t wait.
The hype is real.
