'Can’t Stop Won’t Stop' was a book first published in 2005 by Jeff Chang that chronicled the early hip hop scene. It has now been rereleased with updates and a focus on a young adult audience with writing contributions by DJ, historian and professor Davey D Cook. KEXP’s Gabriel Teodros caught up with Davey D and Jeff Chang about the new edition and the power of hip hop.
“This is the hidden history of America,” Chang says. “Hip hop has that sort of hidden transcript of what really went on, what didn’t end up on the front page.”
