Can't Stop Won't Stop pt. 1: Jeff Chang + Davey D Cook

Rebel Radio

Part 1 of 2. There's so much good stuff in this interview we had to split it into two parts.Jeff Chang and Davey D have written the definitive hip hop history. They should know.They're both hip hop journalists, and DJs, and political activists, and college professors.Dave has been tearing the Bay Area airwaves and the internets since like forever. As we discuss, his charts and playlists played a big role in spreading the knowledge of underground hip hop around the world.Jeff was a founder of the SoleSides Crew responsible for bringing us artists like DJ Shadow and Lyrics Born and helped Josh get his first job out of college. So there's that.Our interview tracks the development of their careers along parallel paths before converging on the re-imagining of Jeff's book — originally published in 2005 — for young adults. They may have cleaned up some of the language, and also added some pivotal stories from hip hop's evolution from then until the present day. In particular, the new version expands on women's role in hip hop as well as how the culture has spread to literally every corner on earth.We also uncover some things they learned through the writing process, and how they leaned on each other to produce a product that's truly inspiring.Make sure you pick up a copy at https://cantstopwontstop.comCheck out some other links mentioned in the show and learn about the authors here:https://www.instagram.com/rockyrivera/http://jeffchang.nethttp://daveyd.com

Nate, Dave and Demone are all huge fans of the original edition of Can't Stop Won't Stop, and consider it to be the best book about hip-hop ever written. Here we chop it up with Jeff and Davey D about the new edition, the state of the culture, and some of the figures covered in the book.

Violence against Asian-Americans has sparked discussions about the racist policies, animus and attacks that have been part of US history for a long time, from exclusionary and segregationist policies to harmful myths and stereotypes about Asian people. Author Jeff Chang has written extensively about this history, and politics and race in America, and unpacks the ways in which white supremacy influences narratives about recent anti-Asian violence.

Revisiting Jeff Chang: On Race in America

CIIS Public Programs

On each Tuesday of this month, in celebration of Asian, Asian-American, and Pacific Islander voices, we are revisiting conversations from our archives that feature AAPI writers, thinkers, artists, and healers. Today we are revisiting an episode recorded in October 2016 featuring author and hip hop journalist Jeff Chang in conversation with novelist and poet Adam Mansbach on the cultural history—and future—of race in America.Because CIIS' history and identity is indebted to the wisdom traditions of Asian cultures, we are particularly called upon to stand in solidarity with the AAPI community. We share in the feelings of helplessness and grief of this moment, and there is nothing that we can say or do that will change the loss of life or the historical legacy of anti-Asian violence in the United States.We hope that in hearing these episodes—again or for the first time—listeners are provided opportunities for connection and healing.This episode contains explicit language. A transcript is available at ciispod.com.
