Chase N. Cash
“Poker Faces”

New Orleans native Chase N. Cashe took to Twitter to premiere this previously unheard track, “Poker Faces.” No Lady Gaga samples here, just some old-school big band mixed with dancehall foghorns, because why not? Lyrically, the track isn’t too complex — your standard host of poker-inspired metaphors — but Cashe’s almost conversational flow is the perfect complement to this unexpectedly laid-back jam. Even as a key member of Surf Club — the modest but consistently strong California collective that includes “Niggas in Paris” producer Hit-Boy — Cashe still hasn’t gotten the recognition he deserves. But if he keeps putting out great tracks on social media, the Waviest dude in rap just might catch the big one.
