Pressestimmen

" "Don't be misled; this is not just another rap book. Can't Stop Won't Stop is a potent political treatise, a glance at the 20th century through the social lens of hip-hop. Inflammatory, illuminating, and anything but myopic, the scope of Chang's work is awe-inspiring." - DJ Shadow "Can't Stop Won't Stop is an epic rendering of the hip hop generation and all its brilliance, contradictions, aspirations and artistic beauty. In these pages, Jeff Chang chronicles the personalities, events, ideas and movements that shaped hip hop from the days of nameplates and fat laces to its present transnational glory. 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 "Before now, much of hip-hop's history has been a cross between personal narrative and music commentary. Can't Stop Won't Stop goes to the next level, documenting hip-hop's cross cultural, political, economic and global intricacies. For too long it's been nearly impossible for hip-hop kids to find themselves on the pages of history. With Can't Stop, Won't Stop, Jeff Chang takes them there." - Bakari Kitwana, author of The Hip-Hop Generation: Young Blacks and the Crisis in African American Culture "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 Dead Cities, City of Quartz and Planet of Slums"

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beginnen wo die wenigsten starten 3. April 2006
Format:Taschenbuch
Es wurden bereits etliche Bücher über die Geschichte des HipHop geschrieben, doch all diesen ist gemein, dass sie nur einen Teilaspekt und hierbei zumeist den rein künstlerischen oder stilistischen betrachteten. Dabei hat gerade HipHop wie keine andere Jugendkultur den Anspruch, eine sozial-politische Bewegung zu sein. Zumindest wurde es des öfteren so in den Feuilletons dieser Welt gehandhabt - mit Grandmaster Flashs »The Message«, Public Enemys Anspruch des Black CNN zu eben Afrika Bambaataas Zulu Nation, mittels der dieTheoreme der Nation of Islam und den Black Panthers für eine Jugendkultur anwendbar wurden, auch nicht immer ohne Grund.
Politik & Jugendkultur
Bislang fehlte ein Werk, das es schaffte, rückblickend den viel größeren Bogen zu spannen, der nicht erst bei den Blockpartys der 1970er Jahre ansetzt, sondern zum einen im fernen Jamaica der 1960er und 70er Jahre - wo nach Aussage des HipHop DJ-Vaters Kool Herc eigentlich HipHop entstanden war -, als auch in der US-Amerikanischen Post Civil Rights Ära der 1960er, während der Präsidenten wie Richard Nixon und Jimmy Carter oder städtische Bürgermeister eine Innenpolitik in den Armenvierteln der Stadtkerne etablierten, die gemeinhin als Benign Neglect (Sanfte Vernachlässigung) bezeichnet wurde und sich auf dubiosen Sozialtheorien wie der »Broken Window Theory« begründeten. Beide Titulierungen zielten darauf, die Armenviertel in den Citys langsam ausbluten zu lassen, indem Services wie Feuerwehr, Schulen und Gesundheitswesen langsam aber sicher aus Gegenden wie der South Bronx und South Central Los Angeles abgezogen wurden.

Von allen Büchern über Hip-Hop die ich kenne das genaueste und umfassendste. Auch gut und spannend zu lesen und immer mal wieder ein paar sehr eindrucksvolle Fotos dazwischen. Schade, dass es keine deutsche Übersetzung davon gibt.

5.0 von 5 Sternen From The Author 13. April 2005
Von J. Chang - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Unfortunately I think the previous reviewer may have missed the point of my book.

As I've said, in the book and in talks I've given on the book, I never set out to do a "definitive" history of hip-hop culture, let alone one simply about rap music. I don't believe that any one book could capture the breadth and depth of the hip-hop generation's contributions to culture and politics.

In 14+ years of writing on hip-hop from the street level around the globe, working (and often battling) in an international cipher of incredibly talented, passionate, and committed hip-hop artists (not just rappers), journalists, activists, writers, and scholars, I have developed a very strong opinion on this point: there are millions of ways to tell the story of the hip-hop generation. Mine is but one version. It's not "the" history, it's just "a" history.

I want to point everyone to some of the incredible writing that is available-in anthologies edited by people like Raquel Cepeda, Oliver Wang, and Rob Kenner, in books by Joan Morgan, Selwyn Seyfu Hinds, Bakari Kitwana, Raquel Rivera, Michael Eric Dyson, Mark Anthony Neal, S.H. Fernando, Adisa Banjoko, and Cheo Hodari Coker, and in fiction by Danyel Smith, Black Artemis, Erica Kennedy, and Adam Mansbach. There are classics of hip-hop writing by Tricia Rose, Brian Cross, Steven Hager, David Toop, Greg Tate, Billy Upski Wimsatt, James Spady, Jim Fricke and Charlie Ahearn. As I write this, I know of future classics still coming by people like Dave Tompkins, Brian Coleman, and many others. Nor am I trying to exclude the many other worthy and important writers out there-trust me, I've only scraped the surface of this expanding field of hip-hop generation (not just rap) books. Before long, our shelves should be bending from all the great stuff.

Let me talk about this book. In Can't Stop Won't Stop, I wanted to explore the notion that hip-hop is one of the big ideas of my generation. It's a powerful idea that unites us, divides us, that we feel deeply passionate about, that for many of us helps to define our identity, around the world.

So what I've tried to do here is to present the emergence of the hip-hop generation, through the cultural and the political changes that we've made and that have made us. In doing so, I chose to tell many less-told stories, both because I wanted to add to the shelf of books above and because each of these stories revealed a certain truth about the generation we have come to be.

I wanted the book to be a window on the last three decades of the 20th century, the so-called American Century. In another three decades, this will sound like common sense even if it doesn't right now: you can't talk about America without talking about hip-hop. And you can't talk about hip-hop without talking about America. This is why the book moves back and forth between hip-hop's content and hip-hop's context. I think they are inseparable. Understanding one only helps the understanding of the other.

Personally, I came to hip-hop as a young boy growing in Honolulu in the early 80s, so I am a product of the culture's global reach, and I document its global roots beginning in Jamaica and moving through to its role now as both a indispensable commodity for the multinational media corporations and a grassroots community movement that bridges people and places all over the map.

Finally, I've tried to capture and celebrate the joy that this culture has given to me and to millions of others-not just through rap, but through all of the aesthetic forms hip-hop has moved through and transformed. All throughout the book, my generation's promethean creative powers are on full and glorious display.

Hip-hop has grown from being a local culture to something bigger, something that frames the very way that we see and live in our world. So I wanted Can't Stop Won't Stop to be a history that also begins from the neighborhood level and expands into a generational worldview, with a lot of dope stuff to move to and think about along the way.

Thanks for reading this and please do check out some of the other books I've mentioned above.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Up From the Ashes 16. Januar 2006
Von Ben Thapa - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
As a deaf Asian-American, I didn't grow up in a house where music was a big priority. It was the purchase of the album "Dark Side of the Moon" that opened the floodgates for me and now I grasp not only the music, but the history behind the people and socio-auditory changes.

I can't help but compare "Can't Stop, Won't Stop" to the recent movie "Cidade de Deus" about a young boy who manages to somewhat avoid the gangs, drugs and cyclical poverty of Brazil's slums. The movie's protagonist Rocket could be analogous to hip-hop itself, struggling to find an alternate path to the violence and ignorance brought on by apathetic governments, organizations and a few evil people in the right places. Chang gives us remarkably well-done portraits of the various social changes that combined to give us some of the most transcendent expressions of thoughts and feelings I've ever heard. The book is worth the time and money.

The shortage of Tupac and Biggie material arises from the book's focus on the "original generation" itself, as the creators of the format got older and had to deal with not only a changed society, but also the question of "Where to go next?" Chang does point out the commercialization of hip-hop has had, on the whole, a mostly negative impact upon the validity and "goodness" of the music being made; that the industry executives have managed to create a system where decent beats, attractive musicians and shoddy lyrics are rewarded more often than the intelligent, expressive and fun block party spirit in the beginning.

Read this book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Flaws Don't Detract from Its Read 24. Februar 2006
Von Maya Gurantz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Any weaknesses in Jeff Chang's groundbreaking _Can't Stop Won't Stop_ come from what is also the book's lifeblood: an ambition to create a coherent disquisition of the braided threads of art-making, culture-making, commerce, exploitation, appropriation, political oppression, and resultant activism that characterize what has, over twenty years, become "hip hop" (a term itself which, in the book, casts a wide net over a wildly conflicted and contradictory territory of music, culture, techniques, and theoretical structures.)

He's trying to do a hell of a lot. And the writing succeeds when he sticks to a specific story in a specific time: reggae in the 1970s; the birth of hip-hop in the Bronx; the rise and fall of the Source. His narratives are clear and exciting; just the very fact of this information being documented with such strength and legitimacy makes it exciting.

However, the text starts to slip and slide when Chang tries to tell too big of a story all at once. As the book proceeds, it is dragged down by the accumulation of narratives he keeps trying to follow, threads he tries to tie up with generalizations; summary statements that lose power with each iteration.

I feel like if the book had tried less to make all the points connect; presented a more consciously disconnected juxtaposition of these various stories--various chapters of the development of hip hop, even out of chronological order--if Chang had left it up to the reader to hear the echoes between his beautifully narrated case studies--it would have been a far stronger work.

That being said--no one, to my knowledge, has attempted a project about hip-hop on such a grand scale. It's always difficult to be the first--Chang sets up a theoretical framework in whose wake many great books will follow.

For a similarly exhilerating/groundbreaking work with similar problems, check out Judith Halberstam's terrific "Female Masculinity."

2.0 von 5 Sternen Informative yet oddly incomplete 12. April 2005
Von dobridale - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Jeff Chang has written a massive volume with lots of interesting information, much of it based on interviews with hip-hop's originators. The early part of the book, which focuses on Kool Herc, Afrika Bambaataa, and Grandmaster Flash, Melle Mel, and the Furious Five, provides a fascinating glimpse into how the music and hip-hop culture got started in New York. The book then moves to the west coast to chronicle the development of "gangsta rap." However, this is where the book narrows its focus and loses its perspective.

There is so much of an emphasis on the history of gang wars and the "right-wing" 1980s Reagonomics/social policy of the 1980s that it comes at the expense of properly placing the artists and their music in the context of broader musical, economic, and societal shifts. While the book claims to cover the period from the 1970s to 2001, it is strangely selective in the history of hip-hop's more recent years. While Public Enemy, NWA, Ice T, and Ice Cube rightly receive lots of attention, more recent artists such as Tupac and Biggie, no less newsworthy than their predecssors, seem to be mentioned only in passing. The accomplishments of Run-DMC and the Beastie Boys are glossed over. Naughty by Nature, Busta Rhymes, Eminem, and the FuGees are not mentioned at all; Suge Knight, Lauryn Hill, 2 Live Crew, the Wu-Tang Clan, A Tribe Called Quest, Puffy, Missy Elliot, Jill Scott, India.Arie and Meshell Ndegeocello are some of the artists/producers mentioned almost as an afterthought, many of them lumped together, towards the end. Many others are left out.

The overemphasis in the book on the difficulties of living in the 'hood and the LA riots ultimately does a disservice to all the artists and their accomplishments. There is no discussion of hip-hop's global reach- i.e., DJ Krush, MC Solaar, Russel in "Gorillaz"- that positively illustrate just how far from the 'hood hip-hop artists have come and the economic power they hold in today's economy. Very little is written about how media-savvy individuals such as Puffy and Jay-Z have used the elements of hip-hop to build empires. In the many pages describing "youth oppression," there is no comparison to the grunge movement in the 90s, no contrast about the survival of rap vs. grunge, no talk of rap's influence on artists like Kid Rock and Limp Bizkit, no discussion of artists like Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, and Gwen Stefani looking to "urban" music to broaden their appeal. There is very little devoted to the changes in technology that drove much of the development of both new wave and rap- synthesizers and samplers- and mass culture- MTV and the Internet. Discussion of these related topics would have brought the book into the present day, added a much-needed positive spin to this often deadly-serious book, and really showcased the magnitude of what the hip-hop generation has accomplished. As it stands, the book does not do much to explain why rap music is so appealing to those who didn't grow up in the 'hood.

Overall, a highly informative and at times excruciatingly detailed book; for a more inclusvie overview of rap music and hip-hop culture, I would look elsewhere.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I love this book 15. Oktober 2014
Von Simone K. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I love this book. As a person who was involved in my local hip hop community, this book helped me go deeper into the roots of hip hop and where it began. I love that it covers all aspects of hip hop culture. Before they had this book translated in Korean, I used to translate the text to help share knowledge with my fellow Korean hip hop heads so that they could better understand the culture. A must read for anyone who loves hip hop culture.
