Drake is back with the video for "Hold On We're Going Home" off Nothing Was The Same. The video is directed by Bill Pope and the 7-minute clip is just as theatrical as we hoped it would be. The video takes place in Miami in 1985 and features appearances from Majid Jordan, A$AP Rocky, Fredo Santana, and more.
In the video, while Drake is at the club toasting with A$AP Rocky, Drake's girl gets kidnapped by Fredo and his crew. The crazy visuals obviously channelling Scarface and Michael Mann's Miami Vice, both the series and the feature-length movie. When Drizzy goes to get his girl back, there's a crazy shooutout scene—and yes, Drake is firing a machine gun while "Hold On We're Going Home" is playing.
Ironically, on Future's Tony Montana remix, Drake raps "And shout out to Toronto/Bitch I’m Tony in my city." Look at him now.
Earlier today, we imagined what Drake's career would look like if he stuck to acting instead of rapping. We weren't too far off. But regardless, if there's one thing you need to see from this video, it's Fredo:
