Who gives a poker face when you jokers showed me your cards?

from Drake (Ft. Dennis Graham & J. Cole) – Jodeci Freestyle Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Cards reference. In poker you are supposed to have poker face which is usually a blank expression or a misleading one that way people don’t know what you have in your hand. But since people already showed Cole what he got, why does he have to hide his smile if he already know his hand is better than there? This a rap game reference he knows his music is better than most people’s out right now.

Furthermore, in cards the jokers are taken out of the deck because they generally have no value in a normal game. Therefore, why would he care about anything you say when you’re worthless. This is also wordplay on the card analogy by using the term Jokers.
