US filmmaker and comedian Kevin Smith has shared a glowing tribute to Drake after he appeared in the rapper’s new video for the song I’m Upset.
The promotional clip sees the musician and actor reunite with his former co-stars from Canadian teen drama series Degrassi: The Next Generation.
Smith and regular collaborator Jason Mewes make a cameo appearance in the video as their comic characters Jay and Silent Bob.
Smith wrote on social media: “The world celebrates Drake as special – but I got to watch him pay that forward, as he made all of his childhood class-and-cast mates feel just as special throughout that amazing shoot.
“This is a good guy who has not forgotten the wonderful world from which he came and the friendships he built along the way.”
Smith’s message appeared on his Instagram profile alongside a picture of himself with the smiling rapper putting his arm around him during filming.
