When Degrassi: Next Class premiered with Maya Matlin quoting Drake's "Started from the Bottom," the Degrassi universe imploded. Because how could Drake (real name: Aubrey Graham) exist within Degrassi when Aubrey Graham already exists within Degrassi as the actor who plays Degrassi character Jimmy Brooks?


In order to get to the bottom of this, TVGuide.com went straight to the source. No, not Drake, but the next best thing: Linda Schuyler, who created Degrassi, along with a handful of other Degrassi writers and producers who have been with the show since before Drake was even Drake.

So is Degrassi blessed by being the only world with two Drakes? Would Jimmy be a fan of Drake's music and vice versa? See what the producers said in the video above.
