Drake stayed classy this weekend with the rest of the "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" cast.

On the the heels of "Anchorman 2's" most recent teaser, the 26-year-old "Crew Love" singer was photographed on the set of Will Ferrell's upcoming sequel. Though little has been revealed about the follow-up to 2004's "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy," the film reunites the eponymous San Diego newsman (Ferrell), his lady love Veronica Conringstone (Christina Applegate) and the rest of his newsroom posse as they travel from California to New York in the '70s.

Production has been in full swing since March, and on May 18, Drake was seen sporting an era-appropriate afro, some serious muttonchops and a leather Members Only jacket -- not to mention some natty acid-wash jeans. He was snapped checking out Ferrell and co-star Applegate as they strolled by him outside Radio City Music Hall.

On Monday, the Toronto musician posted an Instagram photo from the set, with producer Judd Apatow. "Me and one of my heroes," he captioned it after what appeared to be a quick one-day shoot for the busy musician (he appeared to jump on a jet a day later to fly to Barcelona).

Drake joins a growing list of cameos for the Dec. 20 release. Fellow Canadian Jim Carrey will reportedly have a small role, as will Kanye West, Sacha Baron Cohen, Tina Fey, Nicole Kidman and Kirsten Dunst, among others.
