Drake hopped on Instagram Wednesday (November 8) to break the news to fans.
The 6 God is reportedly an executive producer for the revamped TV project.
In THR’s cover story, Drake noted he caught the original on YouTube and was taken with its depiction of London as both beautiful and malevolent. “That human element drew me in,” he said. Netflix vp originals Cindy Holland also noted that it was Drake’s passion for the series that “drove its resurrection.” Top Boy comes as Drake is looking to expand his television (and film) footprint.
