The music portion of SXSW is just picking up momentum. Before the mayhem ensues, we made sure to sit down with Dreezy, who is out here putting in work and shutting down her showcases. Prior to arriving in Austin, Texas for the annual event, Dreezy was spending her time in the studio crafting her upcoming debut album.

Having recently released her From Now On EP produced by Metro Boomin and Southside, followed by her song "Body" with Jeremih, it's clear that Dreezy has a wide range in sound. She explains that she's not leaning toward a certain direction for her upcoming project, instead creating across the spectrum, showing off her dynamic talent.

But even with her eclectic musical sense, Dreezy is still very Chicago. We spoke to her about Chi-Town's recent protest against Donald Trump's rally in the Windy City. She gave us a quick rundown on why her hometown refuses to take crap from anyone and how that has birthed a city of folks who remain true to their values. Check out the full interview above.
