Jazz Cartier is the stage name of Jaye Adams, a Canadian rapper. His debut album Marauding in Paradise was released in April 2015, and was a longlisted nominee for the 2015 Polaris Music Prize.

Born in Toronto, Ontario, Cartier (whose stepfather worked as a diplomat) moved frequently in childhood with his family, living at various times in the United States, Barbados and Kuwait. He credits the different types of music he was exposed to in these locations as all having had an influence on his own style as a hip hop musician.

He was accepted to an art program at Columbia College Chicago in 2012 but, reluctant to move to a new city where he didn't know anybody, he returned to Toronto.

Cartier had worked on an early version of Marauding in Paradise as early as 2011, but was not satisfied with the album. After moving back to Toronto, he began working with record producer Michael Lantz, and released his first single "Set Fire" in 2014. Performing in Toronto-area music venues, he quickly attracted attention - his track "Switch" was regularly played at Toronto Raptors games by team DJ 4Korners, and at a show in March 2015 he was introduced by celebrity rapper Kardinal Offishall.

Marauding in Paradise was released in April 2015.
