Over a decade after graduating from Degrassi High School, Drake aka Jimmy Brooks returns to his former high school in the video for his latest single “I’m Upset.”
Drizzy reunites with his classmates from “Degrassi: The Next Generation” for one giant party in the nostalgic clip, directed by Karena Evans (“Nice for What”). In the opening scene, Drake wakes up on the floor of the Air Canada Centre, home to the Toronto Raptors, with a girl next to him.
After getting a reminder on his phone about the high school reunion, he heads to the tailor to get fitted, where he meets up with his castmate Shane Kippel. They take off in a yellow LaFerrari before pulling up to Degrassi Community School for the Class of 2007 reunion.
The cast including Nina Dobrev, Stacey Farber, Jake Epstein, and A.J. Saudin dance in the halls, while Drake takes selfies with the ladies. Jay and Silent Bob (Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith) also make a return appearance to deliver weed to the principal (Stefan Brogren).
But the “Degrassi” cast ends up partying a little too hard and there’s puking, fighting, and even a makeout session in the bathroom. It all ends with a visit from the fire department.
Along with the “I’m Upset” video, Drake also announced a June 29 release date for his new album Scorpion and revealed the cover art.
