Do You Recognize All The Toronto Spots In Jazz Cartier’s Music Videos?
Fresh off winning a JUNO award for Rap Album of the Year, Jazz Cartier is on the come up. Known around here as the “Prince of the City,” Jacuzzi is always reppin’ TO—his music videos are no different. Here are all of the cool places he’s filmed videos at that only locals will recognize.
Switch / The Downtown Cliché
This video is all about showcasing life in downtown Toronto from day to night. We’re introduced to Jazz walking through his Kensington neighbourhood passing by City of Toronto trash bins (sans #DeadRaccoonTO). Then after partying at a function, he pulls up with the mandem in Chinatown, probably looking for that late night dim sum fix.
Jazz heads to the west end of Toronto to Liberty Village, where he makes his way to the underpass near King Street West and Dufferin Street. But just when he was starting to feel blessed, the video takes a turn, ending in an abrupt car crash.
Always Up To Something feat. DCF
The beginning starts away from the heart of Toronto in the Junction, overlooking the GO train tracks and Delta Bingo on St. Clair Avenue West. We follow the love interest caught staring at Rol San’s neon signs in Chinatown, but what is more noticeable is the iconic Honest Ed’s (RIP) at Bloor and Bathurst at the end.
The Valley / Dead Or Alive
We see Jazz first roll up in a VIA Rail train and head into the Union PATH Skywalk. For the perfect skyline picture, he knows it’s at Polson Pier. Jacuzzi is mobbin’ from a bird eye’s view on University Street and Richmond Street West in the Entertainment District. The video wraps up during a sunny Toronto day, one block over to Queen Street West.
