In my trip to Ann Arbor over the weekend (RIP Shaky Jake), my brother and a few friends and I went to see The Teacha, KRS-One, at a little club called the Blind Pig.
Who should we see as the opening act but Invincible, a friend of ours who's from Ann Arbor and used to live in my neighborhood in Brooklyn. She's been living in southwest Detroit since 2002.
Invincible has been fending off record label deals from the majors for years -- one hip hop magazine called her “Every A&R’s worst nightmare” -- but her debut album is finally close to getting released. "Shapeshifters" is due out on the indy label Bling47 this spring.
Check out video of Invincible along with Detroit emcee Finale by clicking here.
A couple of songs from Shapeshifters are available on her MySpace page.
