Drake and ‘Degrassi’ Co-Star Shane Kippel Reunite in Toronto
Drake hasn't forgotten his 'Degrassi' roots. The rapper (and former child actor) reunited with his co-star Shane Kippel at a recent event in Toronto.
It was all smiles for Kippel. "Reunited at last. Good seeing you brother!," he wrote as the caption to go along with an Instagram photo of himself and Drizzy. The two ran into each other at Toronto's King of the Dot rap battle.
For nine years, Kippel played Spinner Mason on the teen show 'Degrassi,' alongside Drake's character Jimmy Brooks. On the show, the two began as close friends. Based upon a lie told by Spinner, Jimmy ends up being shot and left in a wheelchair, and their relationship never fully recovers.
The Young Money rhymer has kept quiet on both the acting and music front lately. Besides showing up on his peers' projects like A$AP Rocky's 'F---in' Problems,' he hasn't released any of his own new music as of late.
