    street cred

    Dear all,

    What is the meaning of "street cred" in:
    [Jack and Jill kid looking for some street cred]?

    I found in Urban dictionary that "jack and bill" refer to "male and female" but I can't get the meaning of the whole expression.

    Thanks.

    Re: street cred

    Not a teacher

    "Looking for street cred" - slang, maybe from credibility
    "Looking for acceptability or popularity"

    Re: street cred

    It is credibility- street cred is being cool, or respected by people on the streets, not people in authority.
