BOUNCE: Mix for Chapters 1 & 2

This is a continuous mix that I put together to go along with Chapters 1 and 2 of my book. I only included a small sample of the historical New Orleans music that I discuss in my first chapter, but I hope that you will take time to explore the city's rich musical legacy elsewhere. The remainder of the mix is correlated to Chapter 2, in which I discuss the early history of rap in New Orleans up to the beginning of the 1990s, when the local "bounce" style emerged. The song titles are listed below the embedded player.
