Product description


Praise for "Can't Stop Won't Stop: A History of the Hip-Hop Generation" "Flow without the ego, intellectualism without Ivory Tower disdain, and, finally, history with heart and passion and fire: Jeff Chang's "Can't Stop Won't Stop" manages to go from wide-lens overview to pinpoint accuracy in covering the biggest cultural-political movement of our time. A true accomplishment."- Farai Chideya, author of "Trust" and "The Color of Our Future" "Jeff Chang is a master alchemist, spinning narrative gold from a weave of sociology, history, political theory, and old fashioned boom-bap. . ."Can't Stop Won't Stop" is one of the best books yet written on the shifting, tumultuous history of hip-hop culture and the generation of adherents it spat onto the American and global landscape. It is a tour-de-force."- Selwyn Seyfu Hinds, author of "Gunshots In My Cook-Up: Bits of Hip-Hop Caribbean Life" "An exuberant and revelatory history of the inner-city cultural revolution that still rocks the world. Jeff Chang is hip-hop's John Reed."- Mike Davis, author of "City of Quartz" and "Planet of Slums" "One of our most insightful commentators on urban music takes a panoramic survey of hip-hop's entirety. . .Authoritative, incisive, and entertaining, "Can't Stop Won't Stop" is a massive achievement."- Simon Reynolds, author of "Rip It Up And Start Again: Postpunk 1978-84 "and "Generation Ecstasy" "Don't be misled; this is not just another rap book. . .inflammatory, illuminating, and anything but myopic, the scope of Chang's work is awe-inspiring."- DJ Shadow, hip-hop artist, Endtroducing and The Private Press "This book belongs on your shelf next to Criminal Minded, Illmatic and All Eyez On Me."- William Jelani Cobb, Ph.D, author of "To The Break of Dawn: A Freestyle on the Hip Hop Aesthetic" "Orale pues-"Can't Stop Won't Stop" draws from the fire, verve, rage, injustices, pains, victories, and creativity of a whole generation of marginalized, forgotten, pissed-on and pissed-off youth."- Luis J. Rodriguez, author of "Always Running: La Vida Loca, Gang Days in LA" and "Hearts and Hands: Creating Community in Violent Times" "Jeff Chang backspins the uninterrogated truisms that plague so much hip hop scholarship. . ."Can't Stop Won't Stop" is a fluid, incisive analysis built from the ground up, with plenty of funky breakdowns."- Adam Mansbach, author of "Angry White Boy" and "Shackling Water" "Has any scholar ever loved hip hop so well-and taken it as seriously-as Jeff Chang does in "Can't Stop Won't Stop"?"- Bill Adler, author of "Tougher Than Leather" "From the intellectual roots of Black cultural and political movements to the emergence of hip-hop activism, "Can't Stop Won't Stop" is the most comprehensive book out on hip-hop."- Henry Chalfant, co-producer Style Wars, co-author of "Subway Art" and "Spraycan Art" ""Can't Stop Won't Stop" brings us so much closer to fully understanding the complexities that inspired the Hip-Hop Generation."- Mark Anthony Neal, author of "Songs in the Key of Black Life: A Rhythm and Blues Nation" "Jeff Chang has created a new rhythm in hip-hop writing. A must-read and an instant classic."- B+ (Brian Cross), photographer, producer/director of Keepintime, and author of "It's Not About A Salary"
