Marcus Reeves Biography

Author, journalist and cultural critic Marcus Reeves has been writing about youth culture, music, film and their politics for over 20 years. His work has appeared in such publications as The Washington Post, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Village Voice, The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Vibe, The Source, The Utne Reader, The Crisis and The Amsterdam News.

Reeves is the author of the critically hailed book “Somebody Scream! Rap Music’s Rise to Prominence in the Aftershock of Black Power” (Farrar, Straus & Giroux), which was praised by the New York Times as “a sweeping, painstakingly thorough… history of hip-hop.” Scream has been required reading for African American and Pop Culture study courses at colleges and universities across the country, including CUNY’s Brooklyn College, Prairie View A&M University, University of Madison-Wisconsin, University of North Texas and University of Arkansas. “Somebody Scream!” was also nominated for the Zora Neale Hurston Book Award.

He was recruited as digital content producer and writer for BET.com, the digital media arm for one of the most prominent basic cable subscriber destinations. Along with writing insightful and thought-provoking essays on celebs from Kid Rock to Gary Coleman, Reeves produced on camera video interviews with Hollywood personalities like Terrence Howard, Colin Ferrell, Tyler Perry, Terry Crews and iconic legends like Cicely Tyson.

Reeves hosted and produced the biannual talk/music radio show “Somebody Scream,” titled after his book, on the New York radio station, WBAI, 99.5FM. As part of the station’s 'Hip Hop Takeover,' the show discussed social, cultural and political issues affecting the hip hop generation. Guest panelists featured on the broadcast included best-selling author Ta-Nehisi Coates, film producer Mimi Valdes and comedian Chloé Hilliard.

As a hip-hop historian who regularly chronicles the culture, Reeves has appeared in several documentaries, including “Disappearing Voices: The Decline of Black Radio,” “Be Inspired: The Life of Heavy D” plus the docu-series “Unsung: Big Daddy Kane and Being: Tamar Braxton.”

Reeves was born and raised in Newark, NJ and graduated from Rutgers University. He currently lives in Los Angeles, California.
