I take Eglinton to 401 east
And exit at Markham road in the east end
Where all the pretty girls are sleeping

from Drake – Connect Lyrics on Rap Genius


Drake spent part of his adolescence living in Forest Hill, a wealthy neighbourhood in Toronto intersecting Eglinton and Bathurst.

He’s describing the route he would take, heading east to Scarborough where he’d meet up with his girl.

Drake also mentions in “The Motion” that most of his friends are in the East side of the city; it’s where he would spend most of his time.
