Started from the bottom now they’re here! Drake reunited with his former costars from ‘Degrassi: The Next Generation’ on Aug. 4, and we’re totally feeling nostalgic!
Before Drake, 28, became a world famous rapper and feuded with Meek Mill, 28, he was Jimmy Brooks on cult classic series, Degrassi: The Next Generation! He sweetly reunited with his former cast mates Daniel Clark, Adamo Ruggiero and Lauren Collins at the Toronto premiere of new web-series, We Are Disorderly.

Isn’t this fantastic?! Drake went back to his hometown to headline OVO Fest in Toronto, but he of course made time to see some familiar faces. The “Charged Up” singer posed for pics with Daniel (Sean Cameron), Adamo (Marco Del Rossi) and Lauren (Paige Michalchuk), who are starring in the new comedic series together. We love it!
Drake starred on Degrassi from 2001-2009. His character, Jimmy, was a basketball star who became physically disabled after being shot. He left the show when his music career began to skyrocket with hits like “Best I Ever Had.” However, just because he became one of the biggest names in hip hop, doesn’t mean he forgets his roots! It’s great that he came out to support his friends.
You wouldn’t think Drake had any energy left inside of him after feuding with Nicki Minaj’s boyfriend, Meek! After Meek accused Drake of not writing his raps, he fired back at him releasing two diss tracks, which prompted a bitter response from Meek, and they’ve been feuding ever since. During Drake’s concert at OVO Fest, he mocked the “Wanna Know” rapper backstage with his A-list buds Kanye West, 38, and Will Smith, 46. It’s pretty fair to say Drake has taken the victory. Actually, seeing as though he reunited with his Degrassi costars, he’s been winning all week!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Are you glad that Drake isn’t forgetting his Degrassi days? Do you miss the show? Let us know!
