On the east side of the city that's where everybody stay
Drake is giving a shoutout to Scarborough — a borough on the eastern fringe of Toronto proper. The area is infamous for violence (by Toronto standards) due to its impoverished ethnic community — it frequently receives nicknames like Scarberia (referring to Siberia, and thus Scarborough’s distance from the downtown core), Scarlem (referring to Harlem), and “the dirty borough.”
The rest of his OVO crew, including Chubbs; spend most of their time there. Chubbs is in love with his street shit.
