The 3rd Annual Charlotte Skateboarding & Music Festival (CSM Festival) is scheduled for tomorrow. You can go witness the culture that rappers like Lupe Fiasco and Pharrell aka Skateboard P have helped introduce to the hip-hop world. Skateboarding and hip-hop have long been intertwined, but it's only recently been reaching the masses. If you think about it, the two worlds have a lot in common: both are usually anti-establishment, hip, edgy, and their participants dress primarily in T-shirts, jeans, and sneakers.

Kick, push...coast!

The CSM Festival will feature a competition between local skateboarders and live performances by hip-hop and alternative artists.
