Drake Was Paying Tribute To Michael Jackson Seven Years Ago

From the When News Cycles Collide Seven-ish Years In Advance File: Above, a compilation of Aubrey “Drake” Graham paying homage to Michael Jackson during an episode of Degrassi: The Next Generation that’s all about a 1980s-themed dance at the Canadian high school. Not as weird as rock scribe Steven Wells signing off his final column for the Philadelphia Weekly with a Jackson 5 lyric last week, but given that Drake’s torn ACL and newly signed deal with Lil Wayne’s Cash Money Records have resulted in his Google Alerts being pretty lively this week, it’s still a noteworthy coincidence.
