Drake's 'Views From the 6' Title Explained

(Radio.com) Canadian rapper/singer Drake has one of the most anticipated projects of the year. When the album was still in its infancy, Drake announced it would be called Views From the 6. Many wondered what the "Jumpman" rapper was referring to with the title. Here's a short explanation of Drake's new album title.

Basically it's an homage to Drake's beloved hometown of Toronto. The city is nicknamed "The 6" because the city's two area codes 416 and 647 both include the number 6.

Toronto is also made up of the 6 previous municipalities of Toronto, North York, Scarborough, York and Etobicoke, and East York. So that may factor in too. Read more here.
