Rapper, abolitionist, Soul Train line conductor: Ric Wilson’s kept busy as a Chicago rising star making funk-laced bops for the dance floor and the protest. (Sometimes, they’re the same place.) Still reeling from a Summer from Hell, Ric checks in with Michael for their second interview, a passionate exchange from the left side of the aisle. Ric details how he’s remained sane and productive: releasing a collaborative EP with Terrace Martin, showing up to demonstrations, his steady climb as an indie artist, and many more clues towards the future of Disco Ric.
