ONE TO WATCH // TOP BOY

Channel 4 has a long history of producing striking visual content which tackles social reality,whereas other broadcasters merely give topics a once over with a candy floss like duster claiming to comprehend issues prevalent in the concrete jungle.

Described as “A thrilling and raw four-part drama about young lives lived on the edge in east London – an honest and gripping rendition of inner-city drug and gang culture”  Top Boy may appear to be a tad cliche but it’s important to recall a side of the Big Smoke which has always been put to one side.

Hosted by 1xtra DJ Charlie Sloth and compiled by Chantelle Fiddy, the selection is on point ‘naturally’ with two regular purveyors of the underground in collaboration.
