Chase N. Cashe will most likely go down in the Hip-Hop history books as on of the most knowledgable of our culture. This man has been around to see it all; from coast to coast and back down south to elevate the youth of his city.
First things first, RIP Prince. Over the last few days many fans all over the world have been mourning the death of one of the greatest innovators to ever walk this earth. Chase did it in his own way.
This past weekend, New Orleans held it’s annual Jazz & Heritage Festival. This music festival takes place on the Fair Grounds of the city and is one of the only areas of the city to survive Katrina almost untouched. This year we were graced with the presence of none other than Dreamville’s J. Cole. Before he graced the stage, Chase took the jersey off of his back and allowed Cole to perform in it. Here’s the catch, it was a Minnesota Vikings jersey with the number replaced with the famous Prince symbol along with his name.
This moment was so special. Nobody celebrates life better than the way New Orleans natives do. The crowed went crazy and this moment became one that will forever be remembered. At the end of the performance, Cole re-gifted the jersey back to Chase equipped with a an autograph and a personal message. This was in fact a ‘Legendary” moment.
Just after the madness of Jazz Fest, Chase decided to keep it real funky with his latest visual to “Play It Raw”. This track is a single off of his latest project The Heir Up There: 2. The video features throwback interview clips of B.G. while the directors, BLVD, took a more vintage approach with the editing. New Orleans is definitely on the map again and I’m proud to be apart of the movement.
Peep it here:
S/o to J. Cole for coming through and showing our city love, but even bigger S/o to Chase for continuing to put our city on.
