Invincible ft Tiombe Lockhart - "Rope" video

Invincible is one of my favourite hip hop artists, and Shapeshifters was definitely one of the best albums to come out last year. I love it when rappers really know how to pick beats, aren't afraid to address real topics and have the talent to make a "press play and leave it" album. If you didn't buy it you're crap - go to Emergence Music and sort it out.

This tune addresses mental health issues & suicide, shame on MTVu for being too pussy to play it - their programming is probably more dangerous to public health than this video. Tiombe Lockhart keeping it original with the vocals as always.

I had a nice surprise this afternoon when catching up on Sarah Love's show on 1Xtra - you might just catch it if you listen NOW - Invincible was the featured artist. UK please stop sleeping on current hip hop, let's truly support the way France, Germany, and apparently even Poland do!
