Detroit Female Rapper Tackles Social Issues

"One of the most talented emcees I've ever heard black or white, male or female." -Talib Kweli
Detroit's own, Invincible

The rapper Invinciple recently lobbied successfully for MTV-U to air her independent video, Ropes. The song is controversial because it deals with suicide and depression. Invincible once seemed poised to “make it” in the record industry in the Big Apple.  Instead, she chose to go back toDetroit and rap about tough social issues that matter to her.

She'll talk with Dick Gordon on The Story, Friday night at 8 pm.

Check out her video "Ropes," that addresses the issues of suicide:
