There's a lot of love for Toronto on Drake's new album Certified Lover Boy. And that's a good thing. It's a city where he has lived his entire life, which means that he pays major respect to its residents and their city.

There are a few things that people might not know about the rapper's Toronto roots. One is that the rapper calls Toronto “the 6” (pronounced t-dot), which is a nickname that was originally popularized by Canadian rapper Jimmy Prime and has since been used widely.

The 6 refers to the six areas that make up Toronto. These are the boroughs of Toronto, Scarborough, Etobicoke, North York, York and East York.

During his interview with Jimmy Fallon, Drake stated that he called Toronto “the 6” because it was based on the traditional area code for Toronto, which is 416. He also explained that he called it “the 6” because of his childhood in the suburbs of Forest Hill and Scarborough, where he lived with his mom Sandi Graham.

Another thing about the Toronto he is from is that it is a very diverse and multicultural city. It is a home to both Afro-Canadian and Jewish communities.

It is a place where the people are welcoming and they have a strong culture. It is also a great example of how multicultural cities can be and how the people who live in them can help each other.

Another way that Drake tries to connect with his community is through the lyrics in his songs. For instance, he references his mother (who is a teacher) on his song "Momma Is A Saint," which is dedicated to her. And he mentions his friend Anthony Fif who was shot and killed in the streets of Toronto in 2017.
