A Conversation with Chuck D
GRAMMY Museum L.A. Live
800 W Olympic Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90015, USA
The GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to host a special program with GRAMMY-nominated Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Chuck D to celebrate the release of his new book, Livin’ Loud (Genesis Publications). The event will also include a special screening of the PBS docuseries "Fight The Power: How Hip Hop Changed The World” and a talk with Chuck D. The event will consist of an intimate conversation with Chuck D held in the Museum’s 200-seat Clive Davis Theater. All ticket buyers will receive a signed copy of the book.
In his first fine art book, Livin’ Loud, Public Enemy founder, hip-hop pioneer and revolutionary activist, Chuck D, presents a body of artworks which continue to address the social and politically conscious issues of his lyrics.
In Livin’ Loud, Chuck D’s artworks reveal his visual dexterity as he explores a diverse range of subjects paying homage to his musical influences and peers from James Brown and Woody Guthrie to Def Jam labelmates Run-DMC and Beastie Boys; a host of the most influential hip-hop artists from Ice Cube to Run the Jewels; his twin passions of baseball and basketball; creating a collection of landscapes on tour with Prophets of Rage, and a range of sociopolitical pieces that explore the issues continuing to shape our culture.
Chuck D has been creating musical and cultural observations that challenge public opinion since 1985 and his visual compositions continue to interpret and question the world around us. Chuck D’s written commentary traces his musical and artistic trajectory from his early roots and the central figures that critically shaped him and his voice, the formation of Public Enemy through to their Rock ’n’ Roll Hall of Fame induction, his time with Prophets of Rage through to current day world affairs.
With a foreword by Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello, Chuck D’s art debut Livin’ Loud is a visual experience of over 250 artworks, each piece reflective of the man behind the music.
