Drake's Latest Music Video Was The Degrassi Reunion We've Been Waiting For
Kicking it old school.
Outshining any high school reunion we’ve ever been to, Drizzy rounded up at least 20 of his Degrassi: The Next Generation cast/class mates for the epic video, including Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith who made cameos as Jay and Silent Bob.
"There was no acting going on in that video," Jake Epstein, who played Craig Manning told Variety. "It was truly a reunion of great friends who hadn’t seen each other in years."
"It was the most incredible and layered experience," he added, "An homage to the show that shaped all of our careers. … Unforgettable."
"It was the reunion we’ve always wanted, and we were thrilled to do it with our old friend,” Lauren Collins, who played Paige on the series revealed. “Truly the best night — thank you Aubrey, and thank you to the unbelievably dedicated fans of our show.”
Nina Dobrev -- who played Mia Jones and later found fame from her role on The Vampire Diaries -- also applauded the star for arranging the meet-up.
“Getting to roam the halls of Degrassi after over a decade was surreal and bittersweet. Couldn’t be more grateful to Aubrey for reuniting us one final time as adults and throwing the party that our teenage selves could only have dreamt of. We’ve come a long way brother… love you.”
Drake (then known as Aubrey Graham) played Jimmy Brooks in the show, who was a rich kid who ends up in a wheelchair after being shot.
