Although Cash took some time off, he made is return in 2017 with his self-produced project, “Neck Of The Woods (Part One)“. After relocating two years ago to Philly, Cash became fully immersed in the Philly music scene and dropped his first album, “4:08”, almost a year ago.
Now, Close Cash is set to release his first hit record, “Love Or Lust” from his upcoming EP, “Private Party” on May 30th. The single and visual portrays life in the city by bringing together love, sex, and lust all in one.
