3.       ‘And It Don’t Stop: The Best American Hip-Hop Journalism of The Last 25 Years,’ by Raquel Cepeda

‘And It Don’t Stop’ captures some of the biggest moments in Hip-Hop history since 1979 by including the first articles written about hip-hop, the riffs between hip-hop legends and the rise and fall of some of our still very relevant hip-hop heroes such as Eazy E, Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac. Cepeda gathers the works Harry Allen, Joan Morgan (whose book is mentioned in this list). Toure, Dream Hampton (who helped with Decoded by Jay Z), Bill Adler, Greg Tate and others to make this book possibly the best book of collective hip-hop journalism.
