Building up the hype around his upcoming Scorpion album, Drake recently released a high school reunion-themed music video for “I’m Upset.” Accompanying the reveal and release date announcement for his fifth studio album, the actor-turned-rapper brought back his co-stars from Degrassi: The Next Generation.
Directed by OVO collaborator Karena Evans, the video is set in the world of Degrassi a decade after Drake/Jimmy Brooks’ graduation. Starting off with Drake waking up on the floor of the Air Canada Centre, the 6 God gets a reminder for the Class of 2007 reunion at Degrassi Community School. After rushing to the tailors to get outfitted, Drake and castmate Shane Kippel hop in a yellow LaFerrari and make their way to the gathering. The reunion starts out pretty tame at first but as the partying kicks up, things get wilder. The video ends with a fire breaking out at the reunion with attendees evacuating the school and a cut to Jay and Silent Bob delivering their signature rap.
In case you missed it, Drake officially received a co-writing credit on Kanye West‘s “Yikes” record.
