    “Can’t Stop Won’t Stop” is clutch. But I will say that Tricia Rose is a big leave-out. Her two books, “Black Noise” and “The Hip-Hop Wars” are perhaps (even more than Jeff Chang’s stuff) THE seminal academic works on hip-hop.

    True, Rose has written some of the key academic points on hip-hop. Unfortunately, “Black Noise” was first published in the ’90s, so it didn’t make the list by default. And, alas, I have not read “The Hip-Hop Wars,” but I’ll be sure to check it out on your recommendation!
