Netflix Top Boy 2 Loyalty is Everything

Top Boy is back, so along with new storylines and characters, expect a new soundtrack to life on the road and in the streets of London.

Top Boy has always had a strong musical presence, with rap stars such as BRIT Award winners Little Simz (Shelley) and Dave (Modie) playing big roles in the show.

Plus, the show’s two lead actors, Ashley Walters (Dushane) and Kane Robinson (Sully) have both made waves in the UK music scene as Asher D (So Solid Crew) and Kano, and in Top Boy season 2, UK rapper NoLay plays a key character.

We take a look at the music in each episode of Top Boy 2.
