Detroit-based MC Ilana Weaver, aka Invincible, scripts lyrics to communicate both personal experience and a desire to affect social change. Through their clear delivery, witty wordplay, and conceptual songwriting, they remind listeners that they don’t have to choose between style and substance.
WHY WE LOVE INVINCIBLE:
- Their track “Locusts” has inspired a music video/documentary with commentary from housing activists and teenagers about changes in their neighborhood
- They formed their own fair-trade hip-hop label, Emergence Music, in order to avoid signing to a major label
