For an understanding of how its interpreted by a fan 
Top Boy touches on a lot of topics of masculinity especially between different ages of men from young boys to adults. The very nature of a lot of the characters especially the ones who grew up without father figures. Dushane and his brother Chris took their fathers absence from their lives very differently, for Chris it meant he had to work hard to make his own way and stay out of trouble, but for Dushane it meant that life was already against him so what else would there be but to aim to turn the downtrodden aspect of his life into an empire.
