Drake You Ho This Is All Your Fault

Kanye West recently took a short break from infuriating everyone in the world and making sweet kicks for the kids to direct a video for Degrassi: The Next Generation alumni Drake (née Aubrey Graham). And Drake recently took a short break from regular summer vacation stuff such as being—along with Michael Jackson’s death—among the most-trended Twitter topics this week, dating Rihanna (allegedly), signing to Lil’ Wayne’s record label, and having two songs in the Billboard Hot 100 to give the words “make your bra strap pop” from his single “Best I Ever Had” a whole new meaning. A whole new set of meanings, if you will. Big, bouncing, I-can-use-bad-stereotypes-if-I-pretend-they’re-ironic-but-really-I-just-like-them Kanye West meanings.

With piles of exploitation accusations sure to come his way, maybe Drake should have consulted the Degrassi bible and taken these precious fifteen minutes to ask, What Would Caitlin Ryan Do?
