Drake Bring Together The Degrassi Cast For “I’m Upset” Video

Rapper Drake dropped the music video for “I’m Upset” which displays the reunion of the Degrassi: The Next Generation cast. In the video they all meet up at their high school and party it up. Drake who played Jimmy Brooks on the Canadian TV Show from 2001 to 2009, reunites with 19 his cast members.

Here the list of cast in order of appearance in the video:

Shane Kippel, who played his onscreen best friend Gavin “Spinner” Mason

Lauren Collins played Paige Michalchuk, the queen bee at Degrassi. Before there was a Regina George, there was Paige Michalchuk.

Adamo Ruggiero and Stacey Farber played Marco Del Rossi and Ellie Nash, respectively, joining the cast in season two. Marco spends most of the series struggling to accept his sexuality and getting others around him to do the same, while Ellie deals with a home life in constant turmoil. The two strike up a friendship with Paige to form the best trio since Harry, Ron, and Hermione.

Jake Epstein played musician Craig Manning; he is the boy every girl in school wants, who has to battle some serious inner demons.

Christina Schmidt and Andrea Lewis played Terri MacGregor and Hazel Aden, respectively. Terri is incredibly insecure about her self-image and eventually gets in an abusive relationship. She leaves after the third season, following an assault by her ex-boyfriend. Hazel is the best friend of Paige, who struggles with hiding her Muslim faith from her friends because of facing harassment after 9/11. She eventually decides to live in her truth, as well as dating one Jimmy Brooks later on in the series.

Melissa McIntyre played Ashley Kerwin, another past love of Jimmy Brooks and the “perfect girl” who attracts all the guys. She is hated by quite a few of the Degrassi girls, but Ashley is too busy dealing with her whole drama to bother with all that. We will never forget when Jimmy Brooks has the audacity to call her a slut. She also has a tumultuous relationship with Craig that inspires the classic hit “Mr. Nice Guy.”

Linlyn Lue and Stefan Brogren played Laura Kwan and Archibald “Snake/Archie” Rupert Simpson, respectively. They are both teachers at Degrassi, Kwan for English and Archie for Media Immersions. Kwan is known for being strict AF, whereas Archie is a lot looser. Archie goes on to become the principal and has to tighten the reins a little more. Brogren actually portrayed Archie in the original Degrassi in the ’80s, thus making Archie an official alumnus of Degrassi Junior High and High School.

Marc Donato and Dalmar Abuzeid portrayed Derek Haig and Daniel “Danny” Van Zandt, respectively. They are basically everyone’s annoying little brothers.

A.J. Saudin played Connor DeLaurier, Archie’s godson who struggles with social situations as a result of his having Asperger’s syndrome. He ends up joining the football team and becoming valedictorian of the class of 2014.

Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes played Jay and Silent Bob Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes. The two come in the final three episodes of season four as exaggerated versions of themselves who are filming a fictional film at Degrassi.two come in the final three episodes of season four as exaggerated versions of themselves who are filming a fictional film at Degrassi.

Miriam McDonald and Cassie Steele played the unforgettable Emma Nelson and Manny Santos, respectively. They are an unstoppable duo who battle sexism, eating disorders, unplanned pregnancies, and terrible decisions in boyfriends together. They are the definition of BFFL.

Nina Dobrev and Sarah Barrable-Tishauer coming in during season six, Dobrev portrayed Mia Jones, a teenage mother who just wants to model. She eventually leaves to pursue a career in Paris and somehow gets waylaid by some vampire brothers in Virginia, USA. Barrable-Tishauer played Liberty Van Zandt, who never lets anything get in her way, even teenage pregnancy and losing her partner. She is and will always be a genius baddie.

Ephraim Ellis, who played Rick Murray the infamous schoolmate who shoots Jimmy and paralyzes him during season four.

Jake Goldsbie portrayed Toby Isaacs, stepbrother of Ashley Kerwin. He is also best friends with J.T. Yorke.

Paula Brancati portrayed Jane Vaughn, a transfer from Degrassi’s rival school Lakehurst Secondary School and aunt to Mia’s daughter, Isabella.

NEW VIDEO: Cardi B ft. Bad Buddy & J Balvin – I Like It

Cardi B unveiled a radiant new video for “I Like It,” her Invasion of Privacy collaboration with reggaeton star J Balvin and Latin trap master Bad Bunny.

The Eif Rivera-directed video was shot in Miami and finds Cardi, Bad Bunny and Balvin sauntering through city streets, taking a summer bash from the neighborhood to the nightclub. The clip is packed with stunning costumes, plenty of dancing and a few cheeky slice-of-life moments, like a woman tossing her ex’s clothes off the balcony.

The “I Like It” video arrives one week after Cardi B shared the Western-style video for “Be Careful.” That clip featured Cardi B marrying a man in a cowboy hat in a church, then later returning to that church with her husband in a casket.

“I Like It” has already cracked the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, and marks Cardi B’s fifth Invasion of Privacy single, following “Be Careful,” “Bartier Cardi,” “Drip” and her breakout Number One, “Bodak Yellow.” Cardi B will play a handful of festivals this summer before embarking on a fall trek with Bruno Mars September 7th in Denver.

Getting To Know Tuesday Knight Interview

1. Where did the name Tuesday Knight come from?

So it's definitely not exciting as it sounds. I use to go by my government name Shane Jackson. I always thought it sounded plain and generic. I mean Jackson is the most common name ever. It doesn't sound too rapper-ish I guess. Before I put my first mixtape I needed a rap name that I was going to stick to. And I couldn't think of anything and it happened to be Tuesday night. I was in the studio with my manager and I was explaining what do you think about the name Tuesday Night? There's a bunch of metaphor ways I can play that name. He was like "yo that's kind of dope." So I just kept Tuesday Night. That's when I chose the right name.

2. Can you describe yourself in three words?

Creative, passionate, and humble.

3. What college did you attend and what was your major?

I graduated from Cornell University and I went The School of Hotel Administration. My degree is in Hotel Administration.

4. How long after working did you realize that you wanted to do music instead?

I was working him in Manhattan at Warner Brothers for 3 1/2 years straight out of college, after I graduated, December 31, 2016.

5. How long have you been writing and rapping?

For fun, I would say I started between 13 and 14 years old. But seriously tried to make it a career I would say, about two years ago.

6. Where did your inspiration for the album come from?

My recent album spoke about the transition from corporate to music. So definitely this album was straight pool of inspiration from my real life. I just want to share the thought process behind my decision. If anybody else is going through this and having to make a hard decision in life, just do what makes you happy and what inspires you. It's basically what the album is about.

7. Do you have a special place for your writing?

No, I never really write down my lyrics either. I just constantly think about my lyrics. Everything is in my head so I could be walking and I can see things. Like nature inspired me to [to write]. I can see something while driving my car and say I can make that a dope line. I'm just constantly fighting constantly thinking things that I can say at a later time throughout my career; where people would say that I'm smart because I went to school and be able to leave a memory. I used to remember everything that the teacher said. I never took notes or anything. I can come up with a rap in my head whenever. I don't know I just have a good memory.

8. Do you have an artist that inspires you? Who?

I always go back to Nas, just because that was my introduction to hip-hop. I was born in the early 90s and it was huge. I have two brothers and we was bumping his music. So I was really brought up on listening to Nas. I knew all of his tracks and I was like 5 or 6 years old. That's what inspired me to start especially my style is the way he told stories in his rhymes. Now is definitely the inspiration for me.

9. What's the difference between the corporate industry and the music industry?

The ability to be creative. Which was what was holding me back from falling in love with the corporate industry. You have a boss to tell you what to do and usually there's only one way to do it. I just tell you do it this way. With rap I can be creative, do things the way I want to do them and how I think they should be done.

10. Where do you see yourself in 5 and 10 years?

Five years from now I just want to be making decent amount of money and music so I don't need another job. I'm real humble I don't care about being a millionaire and all that other stuff. If I could make $120 grand off of writing music even ghostwriting for other people. I would be completely content. Ten years from now I will be 36, I hope to take the rent money which is like entry level money and start investing in other things. Have my own businesses and have a family fortune, to include my family and friends and make sure all our bodies are good.

11. What do you want your legacy to be?

I want my legacy to be, that I was a relatable. I was able to make people feel what I was saying. I just want people to be able to relate to my music. And help them get through certain situations in life through my music. That's what I want my legacy to be.

12. Is there anything that your fans should look forward to seeing from you in the near future?

I'm currently working on two separate mixtapes. 2 to 5 track EP’s. There's a day vibe and a night vibe. I've already started working on my next album but who knows how long that's going to take.

NEW MUSIC: BIG SEAN – NO MORE INTERVIEWS


Big Sean released a song yesterday called, “No More Interviews” that had the Internet going wild. In the song big Sean addresses all the rumors that’s going around on social media. He also goes into saying that individuals that read these sites, take what they say to be a fact without fact checking. He addressed multiple situations that his name is been brought up in. One of which was his supposed rival with, rapper Kid Cudi. What I got from what he said is that they never really had a problem but if they did it would have been because of miscommunication. He also points out that with a simple conversation whatever that disagreement was could be fixed.  
The conclusion of No More Interviews is that he’s no longer going to do interviews that asked him about his personal life. He wants all interviews to be strictly about music or any business venture that he may be apart of. I had to say I respect that, because a lot of times now interviewing don’t ask questions that they need to be asking. They’ll ask one or two questions about the music and then the rest are about the personal life or scandals or whatever may go to media. I do watch interview sometimes and think that if I was the person sitting there I would get up and walk out. Although I understand that sometimes you have to ask certain questions that are boiling up and people want to know but sometimes these outlets go to far. At the end of the day these artist, entertainers,actors and actresses are human, and they still have feelings.
I’m happy that he took the route he did to address some of the things that bothered him.
I remember when he came out with I don’t fuck with you, I was really disappointed because I didn’t expect him to address the situation in that way. Although I don’t know him, I have watched a lot of his interviews. When I saw this song yesterday, I was releaved because this is how I wanted him to address situations. 

Take a listen to the song, and tell me what you think.
