Tampa rapper Dominique Young Unique has enough sass for six twenty-year-olds, and enough skill that she could probably afford to give some to all the boys her age making done-before hip-hop and still have plenty left over. She will prove it to you if you listen to all two minutes and seven seconds of latest single “War Talk,” which will drop with 11 other new songs on her mixtape Glamorous Touch tomorrow.

Ms. Young Unique can rap, and she can do it well, and she can do it fast, over some great, complex beats. The video for “War Talk” is set in Dominique’s hometown and features her playing basketball and wandering around and generally being a ten times more boss version of the girl next door. Check it out.

Reviews

Charlotte Aitchison’s second LP is a warhead, a sonic sour bomb that conceals sneering attitude and caustic kiss-offs beneath an initially shimmering pop sheen.
