Legendary – that single word is the appropriate way to describe Jersey Fresh Jam 2017 which Charm City Streets attended this past weekend. Jersey Fresh Jam is New Jersey’s premiere Hip Hop Festival.

The tunes are unforgettable, and the artwork is stupendous.

WHAT’S UP ON CHARM CITY STREETS

Headlining today’s post … Cheshire Cat by Reed Bmore

While driving the other day along North Howard Street near the armory, I suddenly heard Tweedy Bird saying: I tawt I taw a puddy tat! I did! From a wire high overhead, the Cheshire Cat smiled serenely down upon passing motorists.

Headlining today’s post … Rath by @heavylox

Climate scientists have concluded global warming, if left unchecked, will cause sea levels to rise. Verifiable scientific data indicates rising sea levels would inundate large areas of New York City and the boroughs by the turn of the century.

In a recent peer reviewed article in Squirrelly Scientific Amurican, scientists concerned about graffiti’s impact on global warming requested the public’s assistance with their investigation. Alarmed by all the dire warnings, Charm City Streets submitted documentation to these scientists. You need not file a Freedom of Information Act request to review this documentation. Charm City Streets now openly shares its information with you.
