I know this is usually Anna‘s domain, but a few weeks ago some of the bloggers and readers here were having a conversation about women-friendly hip hop and I just wanted to add another name to the list of artists worth a listen.
Based in New York and Detroit, MC Invincible drops some rhymes with some serious focus. In her work she talks about feminism, racism, social justice, homophobia, depression and more. And she puts her money where her mouth is, working with Detroit Summer, a collective directed towards transforming some of Detroit’s communities and neighborhoods through youth-led media projects, potlucks and actions.
Check out her video for ‘Locusts’, which is equal parts music video and documentary film about the destruction of Detroit’s neighborhoods, and the communities that are fighting to put their city together again.
