Jazz Cartier aka The Prince of Toronto makes a comeback—this time, with something a little different—and as usual, he pulls it off. Cartier sticks with his signature dark, cinematic sound but instead chooses to veer away from his usual fast and frenetic pace, rapping over chiller, slowed down instrumentals—courtesy of his producer Lantz, of course. The two pull off the new pairing perfectly.
Pree is Jamaican slang that reflects Jazz’s thoughts to the haters that are watching his every move with jealousy: he’s focused on himself and making moves. He doesn’t bother with the hate, as he speaks of being on tour, making money, and being scared of going broke. Of course though, at the end of the track, is a clip of the bah bah black sheep anthem, which is taking shots at Sean Leon, the Toronto rapper from Parkdale which is known for his highly anticipated album BLACK SHEEP NIRVANA.
Jazz Cartier will be headlining in Toronto at REBEL next week on Thursday, December 15th—you can cop your tickets here.
Jazz Cartier’s PREE is now available for streaming on Soundcloud.
