Livin' Loud by Chuck D Book Review

22 Mar 2023

The latest review for Livin' Loud by Chuck D from ArtReview Magazine, one of the world's leading international contemporary art magazines, is a thoughtful and hugely complimentary critique of the book. Read highlights from the extensive piece below:

'Livin' Loud is additionally a multidirectional surprise, riding not only on political consciousness and Black pride but also qualities one might not immediately expect from this famously stentorian rapper, not least intimacy, tenderness and nostalgia.'
'This book is differentiated somewhat from the hobbyist daubs of so many ageing, bored musicians: one suspects that Chuck D views everything from rapping to writing and drawing along the axis of communication.'
'A rounded portrait of its author: working musician, political orator, visibly grateful to those who inspired him and people he's worked with.' 
In Livin' Loud, Public Enemy founder, hip-hop pioneer and revolutionary activist, Chuck D, presents a body of art alongside a biographical commentary tracing his musical and artistic trajectory. From his early roots and the central figures that critically shaped him and his voice, to the formation of Public Enemy, from his Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame induction through to his time with Prophets of Rage and current day world affairs.
