This chapter discusses the hip-hop and blues scene at Red’s Juke Joint in the Mississippi Delta. It suggests that while the juke joint is made from worn materials, it was able to retain a wealth of local meaning, history, and style. The chapter also provides a description of the music scene by local artists and patrons of the joint, including blues singer and guitarist Wesley Jefferson, toast-teller Antonio Coburn, and bluesman Kenny Brown.

Keywords:   hip-hop music, blues music, Mississippi Delta, Red’s Juke Joint, music scene, Wesley Jefferson, Antonio Coburn, Kenny Brown
