Before Octobers Very Own was taking W's in rap beefs and hanging out with Kanye West at his own music festival, Drake was running the halls of Degrassi High School on one of Canada's longest run series Degrassi: The Next Generation. Starring as Jimmy Brooks in the Canadian teen series for 145 episodes from 2001 to 2009, his character was best known for rapping on the show and overcoming a tragedy when a school shooting left him in a wheelchair in Season 4—an image as "Wheelchair Jimmy" that has since been immortalized around his hometown of Toronto.
Last night, Drake ran into some of his former Degrassi co-stars at the We Are Disorderly premiere in Toronto including Lauren Collins (Paige Michalchuk), Daniel Clark (Sean Cameron) and Adamo Ruggiero (Marco Del Rossi). "Some old friends got together last night at the #wearedisorderly premiere," Collins captioned her Instagram photo. Clark added in a second picture "Always great seeing this guy @champagnepapi @robbywclark @wearedisorderly #wearedisorderly #screening."
