Itz Cartier The New Artist Rising On The West Coast
Bakersfield CA, is a tiny town about two hours outside of LA, but it’s where artist Itz Cartier was born. Growing up Itz Cartier moved around from city to city, familiarizing the West Coast and its different markets. He moved to cities like Sacramento, Reno, Victorville, Las Vegas and Stockton to name a few. Cartier used his connections from each city, to the best of his ability when it came to releasing his first collective of music. He was able to build a small fan base in pretty much every city he lived, which garnered him the respect he needed as an artist to continue his career.
Growing up Cartier was no stranger to hard times but it’s exactly what fueled him to become the hungry, hustling individual he is today.
