Name of a hip-hop book?

What was the name of the book about international hip-hop I read ~4 years ago?

About four years ago, I read a book about hip-hop where the author went to a bunch of international cities (I think London and Johannesburg were among them), trying to figure out the ideas other cultures have about hip-hop. The cover was an old-school Nike sneaker, and I think the name was a reference to a rap lyric (something along the lines of Can't Stop, Won't Stop — but that wasn't it).

Anyone know it?

Best answer: Googling for "hip hop johannesburg book stop london isbn" leads to Patrick Neate's "Where You're At."

Looks like willem nailed it. I just wanted to suggest a similar book: Dangerous Crossroads by George Lipsitz. A little old, but good.
