Nothing says “Please stop talking about diss tracks, and any accusations of fatherhood they might contain about me” like a little nostalgia, puke, and sex, right? That seems to be the guiding philosophy of Drake’s latest video for his upcoming album Scorpion—out June 29—that sees young Aubrey Graham revisit his old stomping grounds with a vulgar, explosive return to Degrassi Community School, complete with a bunch of returning favorites, and also Jay & Silent Bob.
