Show My Ass - Dominique Young Unique
I don't even know how to describe this chick... her influences are just so all over the place... there's the bratty rapper vibe a la Kid Sister/Lil Mama, then there's the slight punk sound, and my favorite part, her dubstep beats. I'm still really blown away by the fact that she's only 18; not because she's just SO good, but because I'm older than her and am not really doing a ton with my life creatively, lol. Self-deprecation aside, I'm seeing her this Tuesday Night (8/31) and I'm crazy excited. It will also mark my first assignment at my new internship—so, can I get a woot woot?

[sidenote: speaking of dubstep... I saw Crystal Castles, Rusko, Destructo, and Sinden this past Sunday in Baltimore and it was insane—hardcore dubsteppers are crazy, lol]
