It’s safe to say, all those years on Degrassi taught Drake a thing or two about acting.

His video for “Hold On, We’re Going Home” is a 7-minute thriller in which Drizzy has to find a way to bring his girl home safely.

Dressed in a white suit, Drake channels Miami Vice. But it’s less Don Johnson and more Michael Mann.

The rapper and his crew– Majid Jordan, actor Johnny Simmons (Perks of Being a Wallflower, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World) and A$AP Rocky–storm through mansion doors in slow motion and arm themselves for what’s about to go down. But don’t be fooled, there’s a traitor in our mist. No new friends, never seemed like a better tagline for this gangster flick.

Sure you’ll want to watch and see if Drake can get back his girl, but you’ll really want to stay around for the close-up shots of the rapper looking especially serious. He’s been an actor for 12 years, people.
