Drake Channels Degrassi in Saturday Night Live Promo

You broke his heart, and now he's reduced to being the saddest boy in all of Canada.

Because Drake is, well, Drake—and therefore capable of being artistically hyper-productive while doing things like simultaneously rebuilding our city’s sports teams—he will be appearing as both host and musical guest on this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live.

But not all people, especially American people, are aware that before Drake was Drake, he made his mark playing Jimmy Brooks on Degrassi: The Next Generation.

SNL cast member Bobby Moynihan, though, reveals in this clip that he is aware of the rapper’s TV past, commenting, “You can rap, but do people know that you can act, too?” At which point, Toronto’s sweetheart mentions a “Canadian soap opera” that he was on “back in the day,” and acts out a brief scene involving heartbreak and Toronto that will have you wishing he’d make time for a Drake-themed Degrassi reboot.
