Drake’s album “Scorpion” due out June 29, Drake reunites Degrassi co-stars for “I’m Upset” video

Dan MartensenNot content with dropping single after single, Drake has finally announced a release date for his album Scorpion. A tweet from OVO Sound announces that it’ll hit the streets June 29.

And there’s even more Drake news: He’s just released the video for “I’m Upset,” and he’s reunited his co-stars from his old TV series Degrassi: The Next Generation for the occasion. 

Stacey Farber, Adamo Rugguiero, Lauren Collins, Cassie Steele, Nina Dobrev, Jake Epstein and more all appear in the throwback clip, which starts with Drake waking up in bed with a woman and sneaking out to get ready for his high-school reunion.  Oh, did we mention the bed is actually right in the middle of the Toronto Raptors’ home court?

Next, we see Drake getting fitted for some new threads, hopping in his yellow Ferrari and driving through his Toronto hometown to the reunion at Degrassi Community School.  Hijinks ensue, and Jake and Silent Bob — that’s Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith — are there too, selling weed to the principal.  In real life, Smith is a huge fan of Degrassi, and he and Mewes appeared in some of the episodes back in the day.

The reunion continues as fights break out, people vomit, some guy falls over a railing, a dude photocopies his butt, people ride Big Wheels down the school hallways and people make out in the bathroom stalls.

Then we hear explosions, a fire breaks out, the firemen show up, everyone is evacuated, and Jay and Silent Bob are left hanging out in front of the school, as Jay reminisces about the good old days.  As the credits roll, we hear the theme song for Degrassi: The Next Generation, and old footage of actors in the show matched up with scenes of the actors in the video.
