    Dominique Young Unique is the exciting and, yes, young, MC behind tracks like “She’s Unique” (you might remember we recently featured the premiere of its video), and 2010’s awesomely crass "Show My Ass.”

Ms. Unique also dipped her toe into the fashion world when she modeled for Katie Eary at London Fashion Week and hung out with Kanye West. We recently caught up with the Florida-native in Los Angeles to talk about her recent globe-trotting adventures, how to cool down when the weather gets hot, and what outfits work best for a live show.
