RIP Warren Mayes! Classic track by Warren Mayes, Get it Girl! Add this video to your favorites! Stay tuned, more hard to find NOLA music coming soon.

Seminal bounce rapper Warren Mayes enjoyed a close relationship with the Rebirth band before he was murdered, and bounce rappers such as Cheeky Blakk and Big Heavy have recorded and released songs with the Rebirth and New Birth bands respectively. As many of the new brass band players are within the age range of the so-called "hip-hop generation," their primary reference point in popular music is rap, a fact which has led to the adaptation of several rap songs (including Warren Mayes' "Get it Girl") by brass bands. While the Rebirth band has been at the forefront of the rap/brass band fusion movement, other bands engage in similar practices and cater to local audiences who have grown up against the background of rap music. On an individual level, few of the rappers, producers, and entrepreneurs involved with rap music in New Orleans have the family history of musical practice that is so central to studies of Jazz and R&B in the city (Berry, Foose and Jones, 1986). While some of the participants in the rap scene can claim family members with musical backgrounds, most of them have accrued their sense of "New Orleans-ness" from the atmospheric background of the city's musical practices rather than from any direct connection to prior musical forms.
