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.

Find out more about Drizzy, like “What is this OVO thing he keeps talking about?” and “Now that we have Nothing is the Same is anything the same?,” in our Frequently Asked Questions: Drake feature.
