Drake-a.k.a. Aubrey Graham-staged a Degrassi reunion for the class of 2007 in his music video for "I'm Upset", released overnight. There's Stacey Farber, Adamo Ruggiero, Lauren Collins, Jake Epstein, Christina Schmidt, Andrea Lewis, Melissa McIntyre, Linlyn Lue, Stefan Brogen, Jake Goldsbie, Marc Donato, Dalmar Abuzeid, AJ Saudin (glow-up alert), Jason Mewes, Kevin Smith, Miriam McDonald, Cassie Steele, Nina Dobrev, Paula Brancati, and even Ephraim Ellis.

Beyond the obvious joy of seeing all these good-natured Canadians under one roof again, the music video features plenty of nods to the classic soap that longtime fans will appreciate - the best, of course, being the angry mob getting revenge on Rick for famously paralyzing Drake's wheelchair-bound character. You want me to be in the new video?

Drake is going back to school - and bringing along some old friends. The rapper was a cast member of the show for 145 episodes from 2001 to 2009, playing Jimmy Brooks.


The music video comes just ahead of the release of his fifth album, Scorpion, and a massive 2018 tour that will see him take the stage alongside Migos.

The video, directed by Karena Evans, ends with the closing credits showing original footage from Degrassi: The Next Generation alongside new clips from the video.
