After announcing that we can expect new music from him soon, Drake has just revealed that he is reviving one of his favorite TV shows.
The rapper has teamed up with Netflix (for a multi-season deal) to revive the British crime drama Top Boy, which aired on Channel 4 in the U.K. for two seasons before ending in 2013. The streaming service will premiere the third season in 2019 as a Netflix original. The OVO honcho will produce alongside his business partner, Adel "Future" Nur, Maverick Carter and Jamal Henderson under LeBron James' SpringHill Entertainment banner.
