Hailing from Sunset Park, Brooklyn; emcee/producer Invisible offers a unique blend of old school heroics with new school insight on his self titled debut album. The self proclaimed "loner to the fullest " G The Invisible, is an emcee with an extreme passion for Hip Hop and his craft. It is blatantly obvious that Invisible is fed up with the commercialization of Hip Hop and the direction it is heading in today. With this in mind, Invisible offers his own brand of underground rap that showcases what true school Hip Hop can and should sound like in this modern era. His satisfying debut effort is definitely a heartfelt offering that showcases the life and times of G. Barrios. There are no watered down commercial efforts or forced gimmicky raps coming out of Invisibles mouth. Instead we get a brutally honest album that depicts the life of an underappreciated underground emcee.
Invisible is definitely a well rounded, multi talented emcee. His performance on his self titled debut album will certainly open a lot of eyes and convince the skeptics that Invisible is indeed for real. There is rarely a lackluster effort on the album, as Invisible offers a great deal of variety in song making and conceptual matter. On "The Underground MC" Invisible paints a vivid picture of an up and coming underground emcee and the trials and tribulations they have to go through just to get noticed. The track is obviously taken from Invisible's own accounts, as he knows first hand about the perils of the recording industry. "Petro" finds Invisible on the battle tip, giving lyrical lessons to all emcees daring to step up to the challenge. While the grimy, hardcore sounds of "Concrete Jungle" featuring Chocolate is a vintage hustlers tale of the ominous streets and its pitfalls.
Invisibles debut offering is just about as solid an effort as one could hope for. From the lyrical content to the production, Invisible manages to impress on every level.
And while he maybe inconspicuous to the average fan, G The Invisible certainly deserves to be recognized by everyone.
