Damn, I definitely fucked up by not getting my cameo on in this one.
Via TheCombatJackShow: "Spike Lee talks about the controversy behind his Kickstarter campaign, the ills of gentrification in his beloved Brooklyn, his relationship with Mike Tyson, why Halle Berry is the actor he’s most proud of putting on, why he still hasn’t seen ‘Django Unchained’, his instrumental role in making Jordans the hottest sneaker ever made, what ever happened to Matty Rich, why Michael Jordan now wears mom jeans, how his movies (like his upcoming ‘Old Boy’) is getting bloodier, and a whole lot of other ish. It’s easy to take this man for granted, but looking at the impact he’s had on our culture, we gotta do the right thing and give Mars Blackmon his props.

I missed the homey Hustle performing this, but we got to say peace. One humble, talented emcee right here.
I posted my BlackBerry cam footage of the second song in their set (I believe). Here's some more footage from Collar and the Kings. Amazing.
If anyone knows the name of the b-boy who performed during his set, let a homey know!
See, some experiences aren't experiences until they're experienced. Being able to be with my people, taking in the sights and sounds of another Jersey Fresh Jam? You can't put it into words. It's just an amazing time with a creative group of amazing New Jerseyans. From all of the talented graffiti artists (who did everything from painting Hunter S. Thompson to Game of Thrones characters) to the talented acts like Black Collar Biz and the Blackout Kings, Molly Rhythm, Skrewtape (who hit me with a copy of his Skumbag Millionaires album), DEMO, and many others getting on the stage and showing the enormous talent that's housed within the 609 area code. I didn't get to build with EVERYONE I wanted to, but that's for another time. There's just something in the air when NJ hip-hop family gets together.
I won't take too much of your time; I'll let these pictures do the talking. Here is my collection of shots from the Jam, as well as the awesome pics from V2Gphotography (whattup, Venomous?!?!). After the jump, I have (Blackberry) video from the Black Collar Biz and Biz Mighty performances. If I see more, I'll post more. UPDATE Here's the Trentonian's piece on the Jam.
