Tricia Rose (born 1962) is an internationally respected author and scholar of black U.S culture. Through a sociological framework Rose has examined, taught, and written about the intersectionality of pop music, social issues, gender and sexuality. [1]

Her award winning book Black Noise: Rap Music and Black Culture in Contemporary America, is regarded as the first piece of published work to frame hip hops's legacy in such a way that granted it legitimacy among scholars; ultimately shaping the field of hip hop academic study.[2]

Rose received her B.A in Sociology from Yale University and her Ph.D. in American Studies from Brown University. She is currently working as a Professor of Africana Studies and holds the position of Director of the Center for Study of Race and Ethnicity in America at Brown University.[1]

Born in New York City, Rose lived in a Harlem tenement until she was nine. In 1970 her family moved north to Co-op City, a new housing development located in the Bronx. [2]
