CAN'T STOP WON'T STOP
"When Hip-Hop 101 becomes a requirement, Jeff Chang's history of the turmoil that begat this beloved culture will be the go-to textbook." ― Vibe
Not just a history of the musical form, but of wider hip-hop culture, Chang's book remains one of the greatest books on music ever written. Widely praised on release, it has never been out of print. Despite this, however, it remains elusive in its first printing and is especially scarce when signed. With an introduction by pioneering DJ Cool Herc.
A beautiful copy of this classic, elusive in its first printing.
