Jazz Cartier keeps his buzz roaring with his latest visual for “New Religion,” the audio for the record was released a month prior and I’m thrilled to see a visual come so quickly for this one. Cartier takes you through Toronto streets, cruising in his whip and stunting in his lavish fur jacket. Jazz is making all the right moves to keep his momentum going.

When you got a good team, you feel like you can take on anything. The ‘Get Home Safe’ collective introduces more street anthem records, this time from Jazz Cartier. The video illustrates the grimy, aggressive, bass blaring production that was so definitive in the songs.
All I was thinking about while watching this was strictly mobbin’. Check it out, the visuals are dope and the lyrics are fierce. Toronto continues to raise the bar with collectives like these running around. Watch “Switch/Downtown Cliche” above.
