Degrassi: The Next Generation just celebrated 20 years since the premiere. New reports involving Drake were just revealed. The Rapper allegedly threatened Degrassi writers with legal action to get his character ‘Jimmy Brooks’ Off the wheelchair. As you might remember Jimmy was shot by a psycho classmate Rick in the season 4 finale. Jimmy ended up in a wheelchair and went through numerous operations to try to walk again.

“There was a letter from a law firm in Toronto, and it was from Aubrey. It was an odd letter that said, ‘Aubrey Graham will not return to Degrassi season six as Jimmy Brooks unless his injury is healed, and he’s out of the wheelchair.’ I said, ‘Get him down here,’” he recounted.

“He came in and was like, ‘What letter? I don’t know about that.’ And I said, ‘All right, I understand. But how do you feel about the wheelchair?’” “He’s like, ‘All my friends in the rap game say I’m soft because I’m in a wheelchair.’ And I said, ‘Well, tell your friends in the rap game that you got shot,” Hurst said to PEOPLE.

“He was so nice and apologetic about everything. He instantly backed down. I was very passionate about it, and I said, ‘Aubrey, there’s some kid somewhere in a wheelchair, who’s completely ignored, who’s never on television, never gets represented. I need you to represent this person. You’re the coolest kid on the show, and you can say there’s nothing wrong with being in a wheelchair,’”

We love Degrassi How about you?

Taking over Twitter as VH1iNFO was the start of my career. After gaining over 27,000 followers, I got into podcasting. Using Blogtalk Radio as a platform. I created "Have a Seat Radio" and it took off from there. Have a Seat radio had over 100K listeners across the board? Interviewed Reality Stars, Musicians, Professional backup dancers. I was joined by Jeff Lewis who is the CEO of itsonlyentertainment.com and Tori Bleu who was a local Atlanta artist and well connected to the industry. Our show went viral several times and ended up on People.com, Bossip.com, And plenty of huge websites. Hip Hop Weekly Magazine eventually came to us for an interview and featured us in one of their magazine issues.
