Authored by hip-hop legend LL Cool J, this momentous volume celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of the influential culture, sound, and preeminent voices of American hip-hop music.

Make Some Noise! commemorates the birth, rise, and progression of hip-hop’s culture and its indisputable impact on American music over the past fifty years. LL Cool J presents the journey of this music genre through rarely seen photographs of the hip-hop scene “back in the day,” from block party performances to street shots, parties, sessions at recording studios, and more. Nostalgic imagery is accompanied by first-person recollections from hip-hop’s MCs, B-Boys, graffiti artists, DJs, and rappers, who share how they broke into the business, their artistic and personal style inspiration, and their views on hiphop’s culture and music. Stories are told by the legendary DJ Kool Herc, Salt-NPepa, Rakim, MC Lyte, KRS-One, Biz Markie, Queen Latifah, Grandmaster Flash, The Sugarhill Gang, Run-D.M.C., Beastie Boys, De La Soul, Slick Rick, Public Enemy, Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Jay-Z, Nas, A Tribe Called Quest, Big Daddy Kane, Fat Joe, Ice-T, N.W.A., Lil’ Kim, Russell Simmons, the estates of Big Pun, ODB, DMX, and more.

Each page features a treasure trove of images by celebrated hip-hop photographers including Joe Conzo Jr., Ernie “Brother Ernie” Paniccioli, Buddy Esquire, Richie Marando, Afrika Bambaataa, and others who documented the early years; ephemera such as album covers, notebook drawings, and lyrics; party announcements; street scenes; clothing; and graffiti art. This definitive volume on the greatest legends of hip-hop over the last fifty years is the perfect gift for music and photography fans
