Drake Stages a ‘Degrassi’ Reunion in “I’m Upset” Video
Drake may be a hip-hop superstar now, but the Toronto rapper hasn't forgotten about his early days as an actor. On Wednesday (June 13), Drizzy dropped the visuals for his song "I'm Upset" and paid homage to his Degrassi: The Next Generation days.
Directed by Karena Evans, who directed the videos for "God's Plan" and "Nice for What," the visuals kick off with Drake waking up next to a woman before exiting the Air Canada Centre. After heading to suit fitting, Drake links up with his former Degrassi best friend, Spinner, played by Shane Kippel.
The two make their way to the Degrassi Community School for a reunion where they're greeted by many of their former classmates, including actress Nina Dobrev. Actor Ephraiam Ellis, who played Rick—the student who shot Drake's character—even appears in the video, getting chased through the hallways by Drizzy's crew. The video ends with the series' theme song playing, as old footage from the show is shown next to the cast today.
Along with the new video, Drake also unveiled the artwork and release date for his upcoming album, Scorpion. Set to release on June 29, Drizzy revealed the info on Instagram, posting a photo of the black-and-white album cover which features his signature, the album title and "2018" written in the bottom corner.
