    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.”

    Tending to favor electro-club beats that match her spit-fire flow, Dominique Young Unique has an uncanny way of mixing her international party vibe with unassuming candor.
