Hear 11 Drake songs mashed up with the Degrassi theme

Sometimes you have to do whatever it Drakes.

September 2, 2015

Few people are going to argue that Drake is Toronto’s (and maybe Canada’s) #1 musical son right now. Still, in some people’s hearts, Aubrey Graham will always be that other rapping go-getter: Wheelchair Jimmy from Degrassi.

Sadly, you can’t have ‘em both. Or can you? YouTube user Demi Adejuyigbe has devised a solution with this killer mash-up of 11 Drake songs set to the Degrassi theme “Whatever It Takes.” The name of the mash-up? “Whatever It Drakes”, obviously.


This elaborate effort combines the theme’s music with a capella vocals from “Over”, “Forever”, “Headlines”, “Tuesday”, “Energy”, “0-100”, “Hold On, We’re Going Home”, “Truffle Butter”, “Worst Behaviour”, “Started From The Bottom”, and “Best I Ever Had.” Music videos are blended with footage of a babyfaced Degrassi-era Aubrey. The result? A surprisingly tight remix that, cleaned up a little, could be an OVO summer jam.
