Jazz Cartier's "Hotel Paranoia" mixtape wins the award for best Canadian rap release of 2016.

The 2017 Juno Awards, aka the Canadian Grammys, is currently being broadcast live on Canadian TV, though some of the "lesser" awards were handed out last night during a non-televised gala. The award for Rap Recording of the Year was given to Toronto's Jazz Cartier for his Hotel Paranoia project, which beat out Belly's Another Day in Paradise, Drake's Views, Tory LanezI Told You, and Tasha the Amazon's Die Every Day

In his acceptance speech, Cartier called out Canadian radio and also the Junos. He echoed such sentiments in an Instagram post later that night, writing, "This means a lot to me but like I said this evening the Canadian radio is gonna have to stop bullshitting and start playing our own on our radio so these kids don't feel the need to leave to the states in order to make it or get heard."

• won best rap album of the year at the Junos tonight. Something that means a lot for me being from Toronto and also repping Canada. My drive to push the culture would be nothing if my mom wasn't putting me on to the legend and someone I can call a mentor @kardinalo, Jelleestone, Michie Mee, Maestro, Point Blank, Main Source, Adam Bomb the list goes on man this shit is in my blood. Shoutout JB and GCP too. This means a lot to me but like I said this evening the Canadian radio is gonna have to stop bullshitting and start playing our own on our radio so these kids don't feel the need to leave to the states in order to make it or get heard. That's going to be one of my goals this year to make sure that happens. And also @thejunoawards while you guys enjoy all the hip hop in the world at your after parties, next year you gotta have this category filmed on television. Love 🌸🌺💐 PS love to Drake, Belly, Tory & Tasha. You all inspire me I share this with you guys who deserve it more than I do.

Addressing the Junos cutting the award from the main ceremony, Cartier wrote, "And also @thejunoawards while you guys enjoy all the hip hop in the world at your after parties, next year you gotta have this category filmed on television." 

He concluded the post by writing, "PS love to Drake, Belly, Tory & Tasha. You all inspire me I share this with you guys who deserve it more than I do." 

Also during last night's gala, Drake won an International Achievement Award, The Weeknd won R&B/Soul Recording of the Year for Starboy, and Kaytranada took home Electronic Album of the Year for 99.9%

Both Cartier and Kaytranada are up for Breakthrough Artist of the Year during tonight's show.
