The best show of Sled Island 2015: Jazz Cartier at Nite Owl [Review] #SledIsland

Calgary, AB – On Jun. 27, Jazz Cartier came through Calgary to wrap Sled Island 2015, and delivered the best show of the entire festival. Ya heard? This was the BEST show of the entire festival. It was announced really last minute, too. On Jun. 18, the good people of Sled Island announced that Fido and VICE had teamed up to bring High Klassified, Jazz Cartier, and Keys N Krates to Nite Owl during Sled Island.

So all of us Calgarian hip-hop heads lost our ish. Because Jazz Cartier has one of the biggest buzzes in the game right now. Mostly because Marauding In Paradise was so damn crispy. But either way, we were juiced for the show.

Jazz Cartier’s set straddles the line between a rap show and a hardcore show. I love y’all rappers. But goddamn – when you’re performing a show you can’t just hop on stage and spit your bars into the mic. That’s boring AF. Take a lesson from Jazz. Dump some water on your crowd. Jump on to the speakers. Jump into the crowd. Jump on to the people. Jump on anything, actually. And do it all with the cheekiest little shit-disturbing smirk you are capable of. THAT IS HOW YOU DO A RAP SHOW, GUYS.
