In Their Words: “‘Mississippi’ is a contemporary blues/hip-hop song which lyrically reflects the images and thoughts brought on by the state and historic culture of Mississippi. It’s both a celebration of the blues’ rich musical history and a condemnation of the dark history of racism, Jim Crow and slavery which played such a terrible part in the history of Mississippi and our country as a whole. Here I perform solo guitar and harmonica, singing the lyrics of bluesman Alvin Youngblood Hart and my own lyric, set over a driving riff in the key of E.” — G. Love
