In the process of filming, Jackson learns to play guitar, and sings on the film's soundtrack. To celebrate the release of Black Snake Moan, a limited a 7-inch vinyl has been pressed. The record features two songs performed by Samuel L. Jackson: the oral tradition toast, "Stackolee" and Blind Lemon Jefferson's "Black Snake Moan."

Here's the video for "Stakolee", as performed by Samuel L. Jackson.
