Rapper and writer Dessa’s latest record Chime finds her exploring everything from feminism to death to her complex feelings about free will. Listen as she describes all the reasons why hearing Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car” as a twelve hear old exploded her preconceived notions about race and gender and gave voice to her feelings of restlessness. And you don’t want to miss her describe her quest to use science to rid her brain of a love that wasn’t serving her. Seriously, what she did will blow YOUR mind.
