Jazz Cartier Returns With Hotel Paranoia

“Forever the Golden Child, now I’m the Prince.”

February 01, 2016

"Before Drake, everybody wanted to be the first to blow from Toronto," Jazz Cartier told The FADER last year. "Now, everyone wants to be the first to blow after Drake. I'm hoping it's gonna be me."

Cartier advanced his case today with Hotel Paranoia, a new project containing 16 tracks. The MC executive-produced the release with help from Lantz, and River Tiber is the only credited guest. On Twitter, Cartier wrote, "IM THE CAPTAIN NOW." He was more specific in a recent Instagram post: "9 months ago we dropped Marauding in Paradise but to me it feels like forever ago. In between all the tours, and shooting videos, I always found time to make music instead of photo shoots and waiting for things to happen. Everything about this was very well thought out. Now it's time to embark in another chapter with Hotel Paranoia. Thank you to @deaddilly for the vision. Thank you to my brother @rivertiber for being apart of this. And lastly, thank you to my brother @lantzmusic for everything I'm forever grateful. Most importantly, this is for Toronto because without you I'm nothing. Forever the Golden Child, now I'm the Prince."
