It's business as usual for Toronto's favorite rapper.
Coming off the first real "L" of his career after being the subject of a ruthless Pusha T diss track, Drake has released visuals for his latest single, "I'm Upset," from his upcoming album Scorpion. The new neon-lit video is a tribute to Drake's early days as an actor on the hit Canadian high school drama Degrassi: The Next Generation.
Shane Kippel, Nina Dobrev, Stacey Farber, Jake Epstein, A.J. Saudin and many more of his former school crew make cameos in the video directed by Karena Evans.
Jimmy and his longtime homie Spinner get cleaned up in the opening moments for a high school reunion a decade in the making.
After a few weeks of silence from the Six God, the music world didn't expect Drake to bounce back from Pusha T's diss track, "The Story of Adidon," that accused him of being a deadbeat father to his son.
There was no diss track responding to the claims, but there was this visual. Degrassi was one of the biggest shows in the early 2000s that captured the complexities of high school and teenage life. So, Drake still wins by giving people something they've wanted for years.
Twitter couldn't handle what it was witnessing.
IF YOU THINK THAT DRAKE CAN GET AWAY WITH NOT RESPONDING TO PUSHA AND DISTRACTING EVERYONE WITH DEGRASSI INSTEAD pic.twitter.com/C8MkQ0tetd— Uche (@uchaachi) June 14, 2018

Whew boy, Drake really reunited the entire Degrassi crew as if that would make us forget he’s allegedly a deadbeat dad. It worked. pic.twitter.com/o4JKPrtsVX— Evette Dionne 🤷🏾♀️ (@freeblackgirl) June 14, 2018

I just need the world & @Drake to understand how GRATEFUL I am for the “I’m Upset” video.
