Drake and Degrassi peers reunite in Toronto

Could this be the least awkward high school reunion ever?

Toronto rapper Drake got back to his Degrassi roots on Thursday with a class of 2006/2007 reunion.

Before Aubrey Graham rapped as Drake, he was Jimmy Brooks on the young adult show Degrassi: The Next Generation. Drake reunited Wednesday evening with former Degrassi peers Sean, Marco and Paige — otherwise known as Daniel Clark, Adamo Ruggiero and Lauren Collins.

The Degrassi alum were at a screening for a new comedic web series We Are Disorderly, starring Al Mukadam and Mazin Elsadig (also Degrassi alum) and Jonathan Malen.

Drake's Degrassi acting past is often the subject of ridicule. But clearly his part in the show does not faze the "6 God," who has woven in his Degrassi days — including his oft-mocked stint as Wheelchair Jimmy — on several of his songs.

Drake held his sixth annual OVO Fest over the long weekend, which featured guests including Kayne West and Pharrell.
