Drake is having a Degrassi Community School reunion as Drake has revealed more details about his next studio album Scorpion.
The rapper played Jimmy Brooks in the Canadian teen drama, and a video released Wednesday night for his single “I’m Upset” features several of his “Degrassi: The Next Generation” cast mates.
A party in the halls includes cameos by Jake Epstein, Shane Kippel, Nina Dobrev and Stacey Farber. The principal, played by Stefan Brogren, also appears in the clip along with Kevin Smith and by Jason Mewes.
The video was directed by Karena Evans.
Drake posted on Instagram that his next album, “Scorpion,” would be released June 29. “June 29 2018” he captioned the artwork, which features a minimalistic black-and-white headshot emblazoned with his Aubrey Graham signature. In addition to “I’m Upset,” Scorpion includes his previously released singles “God’s Plan” and “Nice for What.”
In less than half a decade, the Toronto-born rapper Drake went from being a former child actor and Lil Wayne’s protegé to one of the world’s biggest entertainers. The indelible pop hooks and bleeding-heart lyricism found on his early albums, especially 2010’s Thank Me Later and 2011’s Take Care, won him legions of fans and plenty of scorn.
