Dessa, the performer, writer, poet and co-founding member of hip-hop collective Doomtree, joins Soul Sisters this week to chat about her latest album Chime, what it's like being the only woman in Doomtree, how she linked up with Lin-Manuel Miranda to score a track on the Hamilton Mixtape, and the secret to having such a multi-faceted and truly original career ("I worry a little bit less about trying to forestall people’s opinions and just try to do good work.")
