Published Feb 01, 2016Following a string of singles and a cryptic social media campaign to start the new year, Toronto rapper Jazz Cartier has unveiled his latest project to the masses. Executive produced by Cartier and his right-hand producer Lantz, Hotel Paranoia is available to stream below.
The highly anticipated follow-up to last year's acclaimed mixtape Marauding in Paradise, the 16-track effort sees Cartier balance storytelling eloquence and unbridled energy in powerful fashion, opening the album by declaring "I am the prince of the city, I am the talk to of the town / Nobody else fucking with me, 'cause I am not fucking around." Those who have been following the album's rollout will notice that previously released singles "Stick and Move," "I Know," "Tales" and "Opera" are all present.
Cartier has also announced dates for his first headlining European tour which will start in April, while his Canadian faithful can catch him in Toronto and Montreal early this month. Scroll past his upcoming tour dates to hear Hotel Paranoia in its entirety in the player below.
