It was a long time coming but Drake and his Degrassi: The Next Generation co-star Shane Kippel finally reunited on Sunday (Jan. 26). They bumped into each other backstage at Toronto's rap battle league King of the Dot.

Kippel's played Gavin "Spinner" Mason and Drake played Jimmy Brooks, respectively.

"Reunited at last," Kippel captioned with an Instagram photo of his old pal. "Good seeing you brother!"

Since leaving the show Drake's gone on to become... well... Drake. An international rap superstar. As for Kippel, his character was written off the show in 2010, and he subsequently left the teen drama after nine years. Other than some scant TV appearances, things seem to have been rather quiet for him on the acting front since then.
