Chicago native Jessica Disu, also known as FM Supreme, is an activist and rapper who reps her city everyday. Many were introduced to her when she stood up for police abolition on Fox News but there is so much more to this young organizer. Her new video for the powerful song, “This is not a drill” details the ways that her activism is informed by her community, her experiences, and her faith.
We recently had a chance to interview Disu and she explained that, “I think that it is important to “do the work” whatever that work is that needs to be done. Everyone has different skill sets. I believe that it is important to draw on our individual strengths and collectively build on our weaknesses as a community.” There is no doubt that Disu has taken on the responsibility of using her artistry to the “do the work” in her own community.
The full mixtape will be released on September 27th. Follow Disu on Twitter at @FMSupreme.
