Fastest growing hedge/fence shrub?

I don't have a fence, and want to "make" a privacy fence with a shrub.

What's the fastest growing shrub or short tree I could get?

I was thinking American Boxwood maybe. I even thought about bamboo.

It would be part shade part full sun. There's a tall tree on that side of the yard, so a little of my "shrub fence" would be shaded, with some of it full sun.

I have a normal to large residential yard. Some plant that helps absorb noise would be nice, but not essential.

I mostly just want a fast growing natural "fence" for some privacy from the street until we can swing a new fence installation.
