Just when you think he’s down for the count, Drake comes back to prove he’s never out for long. After a brief quiet period following a rap beef with Pusha T, 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 castmates, 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.
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 while also giving diehard fans from his time on Degrassi something new to love him for. 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!
