After recently capturing the award for Rap Recording of the Year at the 2017 Juno Awards, Toronto MC Jazz Cartier has signed a deal with Capitol Records.

The announcement was made through the label's Twitter account, welcoming Cartier to the "#CapitolFamily" and proving that a 6ix God co-sign isn't necessary to make waves in Toronto and beyond.

While the finer details of the deal were not disclosed, the move comes ahead of Cartier's new project Fleurever, which he is currently at work on. The record's first single, "Tempted," was released earlier this year.

Following his Juno win, Cartier wrote in an Instagram post that "Canadian radio is gonna have to stop bullshitting and start playing our own on our radio so these kids don't feel the need to leave to the states in order to make it or get heard. That's going to be one of my goals this year to make sure that happens."

He continued in adding, "And also @thejunoawards while you guys enjoy all the hip hop in the world at your after parties, next year you gotta have this category filmed on television."

Cartier's last LP, Hotel Paranoia, arrived in early 2016. He's also set to take off on the "Secret Garden Tour" this month, and you can find more information on that here.
 

• won best rap album of the year at the Junos tonight. Something that means a lot for me being from Toronto and also repping Canada. My drive to push the culture would be nothing if my mom wasn't putting me on to the legend and someone I can call a mentor @kardinalo, Jelleestone, Michie Mee, Maestro, Point Blank, Main Source, Adam Bomb the list goes on man this shit is in my blood. Shoutout JB and GCP too. This means a lot to me but like I said this evening the Canadian radio is gonna have to stop bullshitting and start playing our own on our radio so these kids don't feel the need to leave to the states in order to make it or get heard. That's going to be one of my goals this year to make sure that happens. And also @thejunoawards while you guys enjoy all the hip hop in the world at your after parties, next year you gotta have this category filmed on television. Love 🌸🌺💐 PS love to Drake, Belly, Tory & Tasha. You all inspire me I share this with you guys who deserve it more than I do.
