You think of hiphop in its early sense when it was communal music, you'd be on your block having a block party with all your friends, freestyling, talking about your friends. That's what the banjo was also. In your own community, in the quarters, in the bottoms, the phrase was, you put 'em on the banjo.

~ Sule Greg Wilson, interview with M. Fields, Boone, NC, April 2005
