Biography

Invincible refers to these different artists:

1) Detroit based MC Ilana Weaver, AKA Invincible, scripts lyrics to communicate both personal experience and a desire to affect social change. Through her clear delivery, witty wordplay, and conceptual songwriting she reminds listeners, you dont have to choose between style and substance. Even before she was fluent in English, Invincible recalls scribbling down the lyrics to her early hip-hop influences including Gang Starr, Boss, and Paris. She moved from the Middle East to the Midwest (Michigan) in elementary school, where she traded tapes and began to write rhymes. At age 15, she sought out local freestyle ciphers, and snuck into 21+ open-mics. By the following year she was throwing her own all-ages shows and collaborating with Detroit area artists such as Athletic Mic League and One Be Lo. While on a fateful trip to NYC in 1997, Invincible linked with the ANOMOLIES crew, an all-women all-elements hiphop collective. She relocated to the Rotten Apple one year later to join the crew, sharing stages with heavyweights such as The Roots, MC Lyte, Pharoahe Monch, Bahamadia, and Le Tigre. These ties drew interest to the rising emcee, landing her a gig as a lyrical sketch writer for MTV’s Lyricist Lounge show. A verse from 1999’s Hip Hop for Respect compilation against police brutality organized by Talib Kweli and Mos Def served as the worlds intro to her flow. She followed up with the cut “Perfectionists” with Helixx of the ANOMOLIES on the Lyricist Lounge Underground Airplay Vol. One.

    Never said she shouldn't be. She's definitely more well-known than the UK Invincible. Just pointing out the silliness of the whole situation.

    last.fm not having any MC invincible albums is irrelevant; there are a lot of incomplete discographies here, including for much more famous artists, but that doesn't have anything to do with which is the more popular artist by a given name. speaking only for myself, i'd never heard of the band invincible until just now. it seems most of the shouts, linked groups, and, crucially, scrobbles are for the hip-hop artist, so why she shouldn't be the main pic baffles me.

    I somewhat resent the fact that the default pic is an artist that last.fm has no official album listings for. I definitely prefer the Mark Burgess-led band, even though I like the hip hop incarnation of "Invincible" too (I own records by both, perhaps surprisingly). I think this page is the perfect example of why last.fm needs to build something that distinguishes between artists that happen to have the same/similar names.
