But that epic story has never been told with this kind of breadth, insight, and style. Based on original interviews with DJs, b-boys, rappers, graffiti writers, activists, and gang members, with unforgettable portraits of many of hip-hop\'s forebears, founders, and mavericks, including DJ Kool Herc, Afrika Bambaataa, Chuck D, and Ice Cube, Can\'t Stop Won\'t Stop chronicles the events, the ideas, the music, and the art that marked the hip-hop generation\'s rise from the ashes of the 60\'s into the new millennium.
