Can’t Stop Won’t Stop – The Next Lesson Mixtape – DJ Sharp & DJ Icewater

Last year I read the book 'Can't Stop, Won't Stop' by Jeff Chang which is about the proper history of hip hop.
Some of it is rather challenging - especially the later chapters - and does tend to go too much into the socio-economics a little too much. However the early chapters are especially rewarding and the section on gangs is enlightening as well as eye-opening.
However I didn't discover that there was a CD to go with the book until after I'd finished reading it so I leapt onto ebay and managed to find a sealed copy for just 99p. You don't necessarily need to read the book to enjoy the album as the cd is more or less a self-contained history lesson to music.

I read the book a few years back and the early chapters are especially interesting. The whole Black Spades/Bambaataa section section was mad insightful, is Bam's real name Kevin Donovan or not?
I'm interested in checkin this mix cuz the tracklist looks fire.
