Watch the Video for Dominique Young Unique's "The World is Mine"
- Words: Patric Fallon
It must be a blast being Dominique Young Unique. As this video for her Domination mixtape cut "The World is Mine" shows, life for the underage Tampa-based MC is filled with just about everything a girl could want: flashy manicures, a quiet man, a couple of friends to dance around with, and loads of attention. Well, maybe it's not everything a girl could want, but Unique sure does make it look fun. Through snippets of Stevie Wonder's "Part Time Lover" and some pretty gritty and grimy production work, the mic-rocking youngster delivers one of her more lighthearted flows about—what else?—being awesome and getting famous. And maybe it's not all just a ruse; she is touring with Dirty Projectors (huh?) for a handful of shows, starting this Thursday in Southern California. You can check out those dates below.
