This chapter focuses on the issue of musical mobility in the Mississippi Delta. It explains that the unique cultural convergence that defines the Mississippi Delta can be traced through the town’s history as a center for agricultural trade. The chapter discusses how the race recording industry served as a sort of national telephone line as Delta musicians added to new styles, themes, and songs a distinctly local flavor. It also considers the debate on what the constitution of the rap and hip-hop forms must be.
