Drake Is Set To Star Alongside Ashley Walters In New Top Boy Series

Looks like Drake's Christmas may have come early.

 

After buying the right's to the hit British drama 'Top Boy' last year, Canadian rapper Drake may just have bagged himself a role in the series too!

 

 

According to reports from The Mirror, the 'More Life' artist met up with the show's creators including former So Solid Crew member and British actor Ashley Walters who played main character Dushane.

 

"We met up to start talking about the show and we are working out a role for him", Ashley explained, "He loves acting, of course he wanted a part. He's going to be really hands on and is getting stuck into it."

 

The popular london-based TV series first aired in 2011 and returned in 2013 for it's second series before being dropped by channel 4. The show starred several homegrown talents including musicians Kano, Bashy and Ashley Walters.

 

Besides falling in love with the UK's grime scene, Drake also shown great enthusiasm for 'Top Boy' for quite some time now, often posting about the hit show on his Instagram page.
