Dominique Young Unique
is a raw, homemade talent from the Robles Park Neighborhood Projects of Tampa Bay, Florida. Domination
, her new mixtape has a teenage urgency that never lets up. It's an all out assault of dry drum machine beats, gamer bleeps, fat synths and Dominique's completely unselfconscious delivery. From the opening tom-toms of "Hot Girl," it's clear this nineteen-year-old rapper/singer is all business. "Bitch I'm gettin' rich while you're holding seven babies," she brags in "Blaster." This is music designed for escape, (on the dance floor and from the neighborhood) and as much as it sounds like a hell of a party, the stakes couldn't be higher.
