Chuck DIn Livin’ Loud, Public Enemy founder, hip-hop pioneer and revolutionary activist, Chuck D, presents a body of art, each piece reflective of the man behind the music, alongside a biographical commentary tracing his musical and artistic trajectory. Before that, he grew up on Long Island, obsessed with the New York Knicks and Motown – though to judge from this book’s opening salvo of musician portraits painted in a confident, appealingly scribbly hand, he had his ears wide open: to Nina Simone, free-jazzer Archie Shepp, blues meister Taj Mahal and hobo folkie Woody Guthrie.Chuck D plans to continue his activist mission with the launch of Enemy Books, a new imprint produced and distributed by Brooklyn-based independent publisher Akashic Books.

Livin’ Loud is a sufficiently loose and inclusive project that, not far away from this, D is ruminating on – and sketching – a nice bit of cityscape he found in Oslo. It was the medium he turned to when his father died in 2016, it helped him look inward and find peace.
