Noname Annouces Construction On Her Independent Noname Book Club

Noname has been creating music since 2013 and released her full-length debut project, Telefone, in 2016. Following her success, she released her second project, Room 25, in 2018. Aside from creating music, Noname has been very active with the club since its launch in 2019 and has been dedicated to providing “reading material for the homies.”

Chicago rapper Noname is breaking ground with her independent Noname Book Club. The club has officially secured a physical headquarters, and construction is in full swing. Aside from creating music, Noname has been very active with the club since its launch in 2019 and has been dedicated to providing “reading material for the homies.”

Born and raised on the west side of Chicago, Noname has been creating music since 2013 and released her full-length debut project, Telefone, in 2016. Following her success, she released her second project, Room 25, in 2018.

Since then, Noname has released a handful of singles, including “Rainforest,” that dropped last week but has been mainly focused on her activism. With Noname Book Club dedicated to uplifting POC voices and supporting locally-owned bookstores, the club also launched its Prison Program in 2020. The club sends its monthly picks to those incarcerated in prisons around the country.

On her IG story, Noname posted photos of the headquarters under construction with captions that state that the headquarters will provide spaces for “political education classes, book drives, a radical community library. Book club meet-ups, food drives, tent drives, free movie screenings, free art shows, and more.”

She also stated on IG that “We service the community. We cannot wait for Biden or any other white supremacist politicians to provide for the people. Capitalism doesn’t end by itself. We have to start building a worker-led solidarity economy. The government would rather bomb Somalia than pay your rent.”

Noname is definitely planning to provide more than just books to the homies. You can support the Noname Book Club here.
