Let the World Listen Right
This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the history of blues and hip-hop music in the Mississippi Delta and the biography of rapper TopNotch the Villain. It discusses the author’s observation that rhythmic oral/musical performance takes place anywhere community gathers in the Delta, particularly in the pews in the Baptist church. The chapter also explains TopNotch’s plan to stay in the Delta to use his voice to rally for new job opportunities, improved educational funding, and recognition of the voices of young practitioners of the living blues.
