Drake pays homage to the show that helped him to become a household name, Degrassi, in his new music video “I’m Upset.”
After graduating from Degrassi High School over a decade ago, Drake, aka Jimmy Brooks, and his entire cast is back for a reunion in his new music video “I’m Upset.” You can recall that Drizzy dropped the single the same weekend that he dropped the infamous Pusha T diss track “Duppy Freestyle.” The video was directed by Karena Evans who also directed “Nice For What.”
For the cut, Drake assembled all his former castmates on “Degrassi: The Next Generation” for a massive party at Degrassi High School and it looked like the gang was having so much that you want to go back and watch the entire show all over. The video kicks off with Drizzy waking up on the floor of the Air Canada Centre with a girl next to him. The Air Canada Centre is the home of the Toronto Raptors, his home NBA team.
The cast members include Stacy Farber, A.J. Saudin, Jake Epstein, Nina Dobrev, among others who dance and party the night away. Drake seems like he was more interested in hanging with the ladies. The gang partied so hard that they started a fire which resulted in everyone running for their lives.
Drake didn’t just drop the video for “I’m Upset,” he also revealed the release date for his new album Scorpion which is coming on June 29.
