Drake Gives ‘Degrassi’ Fans A Surprise Reunion In Music Video
Drake dropped a surprise for all his fans on Wednesday night with the music video for his song “I’m Upset.”
The high-school-reunion-themed video takes viewers back to Drake’s days on the Canadian TV drama Degrassi: The Next Generation, on which he played the role of Jimmy Brooks from 2001 to 2009. It features a slew of his Degrassi cast-mates, including Nina Dobrev (Mia Jones), Lauren Collins (Paige Brooks), Shane Kippel (Gavin “Spinner” Mason), Miriam McDonald (Emma Nelson), and Ephraim Ellis, whose character, Rick Murray, shoots Jimmy Brooks and paralyzes him from the waist down during season four.
Even Kevin Smith’s Jay and Silent Bob also show up in the clip!
Directed by Karena Evans, who also created Drake’s star-studded “Nice For What” and inspirational “God’s Plan,” the video pokes fun at Drake’s early days as a teen actor. It even ends with side-by-side comparisons as the show’s theme song, “Whatever It Takes,” plays. Check out the video above for all your nostalgic feels!
It’s been a rough, beef-filled month for Drake, but it looks like the rapper has found some old friends to help him cope.
