Get: Tickets ($15) | Directions 

Detroit’s Invincible made her debut in 2008, but the rapper started writing lyrics at age 9. The emcee and activist sees her music as her art as well as an engine to empower others and drive social change.

On Wednesday night, Invincible takes the stage at Joe's Pub as part of the “Toshi Reagon Presents Gold Folk: Women of Hip Hop” show along with Reina Williams, DJ Reborn, The Ladies of MAWU, and fellow Anomolies hip-hop collective members Pri the Honey Dark, Helixx and Big Tara.

Before the show, download Invincible’s “Detroit Summer,” an ode to The D in the sunny season. Also check out her documentary short on the European leg of a multi-generational female emcee hip-hop show called "We-B Girlz." The 17-minute video features interviews and show footage of hip-hop greats Roxanne Shanté and Bahamadia alongside emerging artists DJ Shortee, Eternia and Stacy Epps on their 2009 tour.
