Can't stop won't stop

Just want to put in a plug for a great book I'm reading right now...
Can't Stop Won't Stop - A history of the Hip Hop Generation, a must-read for all of us (youngsters?), whether we listen to Hip hop or not. An interesting perspective on the period from the the 70s up until commercial Hip hop of the 2000+.

The Swedish translation is not the best, but it is interesting reading and some good photos in there as well. Currently I'm visiting Jamaica in the early prehistoric roots to the scratching.

Jeanne told us about this woman, one of the FSA photographers. I bet Marion and Jeanne are a bit alike. Or what do you say Mr Barbalander
