Jazz Cartier

Available for Shows/Gigs - Confirmed: Nov. 6, 2015 (Awaiting Update)
Jazz is hip hop – and we aren’t talking about the music genre neither. Toronto-born and based rapper Jazz Cartier is making moves much like his city, which happens to be the fourth largest in North America and arguably the world’s most multi-cultural. He knows area codes. And in the most non-superficial way imaginable. Having spent his formative years living in destinations as disparate as Houston, Barbados, Georgia, and Kuwait, all the way to Connecticut (where he attended private school), Jazz has a lot to draw on lyrically, perhaps way more so than your average 21 year old.

Jazz unapologetically rep’s a side of Toronto (and perhaps of the overall hip hop scene?) that doesn’t often get seen, where ‘hood ethics comfortably mingle with that of the moneyed set, with Instagram and social media serving as his biggest ally and new media outlet. Jazz’s main producer Lantz - who has already been written up in XXL Magazine as one to watch this year – has been supplying Jazz and his distinct baritone voice and chameleon-like flows with his otherworldly Year 2080 productions over the last three years, beginning from when Jazz was still on the come up. Though Jazz didn’t really start from the bottom, but he’s here.

Jazz represents that new wave of rap talents who are creating major waves and generating buzz organically within large cosmopolitan cities, through social media and word of mouth, without even having put out any proper music releases thus far.

The Marauding In Paradise mixtape is Jazz’s coming of age, coming out party that will appeal to the lowest common denominator of hard core rap enthusiast all the way over to the more cerebral and heady urban music enthusiast who can appreciate what this Leader of the New School is bringing to the rap game.
