We recently had the pleasure of spending some time talking to Chicago MC, Jessica Disu aka FM Supreme, about her seat right at the intersection of hip-hop music and social activism. She also provided some gems about the significance of travel in self-improvement and the controversy surrounding her appearance on FOX News calling for the abolition of police.

BYP: If you could go back to that moment, and those leading up to it, is there anything you would’ve done differently?
