“Hold On We’re Going Home” Video: Drake Channels ’80s Mobsters, Finally Proves He Knows How To Defend Himself

Happy Drizzy Week! Fresh off the release of third album, Nothing Was The Same, Drake has dropped the new video for “Hold On We’re Going Home.” The official clip transports the Toronto star back to ’80s Miami, where he’s the boss of a (likely shady) burgeoning empire consisting of A$AP Rocky, Majid Jordan, and the rest of his OVO buddies. The kind of power they’ve established helps get them exclusive tables at fancy clubs, but it also makes them and the ones they love potential targets. Borrowing heavily from mob classics by casting Scarface actor Steven Bauer, what we get is a crime caper that allows Drake to emote around lingerie AND shoot a gun while his friends rock Flock of Seagulls hair.

But we’ve often wondered: Does he miss his former castmates? Is there some sort of top-secret annual reunion that goes down, where Craig (Jake Epstein) debuts his new music and Darcy (Shenae Grimes) goes on and on about what it was like to meet Shannen Doherty?
