What a fantastic & meaningful project for high schoolers. I am inspired. I bet those kids had their minds blown by some of that stuff.

I hope they enjoy the zillion hits they're going to get too.

Gee, you mean there is something between the hudson river and the rocky mountains besides tumbleweeds and alligators?

Who'd a thunk it?

p.s. I grew up in Hattiesburg, MS.

Another guy I knew, Mark Mann, is on the same label as Afroman.

This is a fabulous post and a neat and useful school project! The project involved writers, actors, and artists too. Thanks, gimonica!

This is really wonderful. I wish someone would have made me do this in high school, but 1. I grew up in Kansas and 2. well, see number one. As is, I found out most of it in college. Thanks gimonca, great post.

This is quite excellent, in about sixteen ways. Great post.

I'm happy to see David Banner listed, as his album, "Mississippi: The Album", is entirely about how they do it different down in Mississippi--every song mentions the state about two dozen times. And you wouldn't like him when he's angry:

"I never really wanted a clothing line, but I was so pissed off that I was in Mississippi and I see every other state on front of shirts but I couldn't find Mississippi," BANNER says. "So I was fussin' in the store and the clerk said, 'why don't you make one?' So I did and they were in the 'Like A Pimp' video."

Oh how weird. I know Igor XA and didn't realize he was on Mefi, and also I'm going to college in Starkville. Last place I thought I'd see mentioned on the blue...

I live in Starkville. I think it's interesting.
