Unique Zayas???

Everyone is trying to figure out the true "gender" status of "DJ Unique". If this person was to receive a insert of silcone implants, additional estrogen shots and shave down his adam's apple, he'll easily pass as a "she". I wonder where and how "unique" was able to finance his "career":

A Vocalist by Any Other Name Would Still Sing as Sweet, but He Just Wouldn’t be Unique

Screw your lyrics Ne-Yo, because Unique is a movement by himself - a force when he’s alone. Unique Zayas—yes, that’s his real name—is a 19 year-old Brooklyn native that just wants you to hear his voice and feel his influence. This youngster has basically developed his whole R&B/Pop career on his own. Unique created his own fan base by performing any and everywhere, self-promoting on myspace and pop up visits to the Def Jam offices. He’s also proved that he’s to be taken seriously in this business by owning his own independent label—Star Power Media. What other 19 year old holds their career in the palm of their hands? It’s a good thing Unique looks good in hats because he wears a lot of them.

Unique also uses his music to impact the youth; which is why he created his non-profit foundation, “The Unique Movement-In Action!” With this organization, Unique is able to connect with his fans and inspire them to give back to their communities.

This year fans will get to hear the fruits of his labor. On his upcoming summer album, he’s written with Claude Kelly (Whitney Houston, Akon, Leona Lewis and Britney Spears) hit the studios with mega producers Eric Hudson (Kanye, John Legend), Bangladesh (Lil’ Wayne, Ludacris) and Reefa (Fabolous, Akon, Game).

They say we live up to what our names define and Unique’s mother couldn’t have hit the nail on the head any harder. Unique is certainly living up to his name and his music will prove it to you.

Your development as an artist took place in front of other peoples’ eyes. Can you explain to me how that was?

The different thing about my story is, most artists that are signed, they’re able to develop their performance and interviewing skills behind closed doors before they are presented to the world. But, for me, I was able to create a fan base before I had a label.

How did you get Def Jam to get behind you?

It’s a long story. After going to different labels and being rejected, I visited Def Jam and I let L.A. Reid hear my music and he fell in love with it. It was a crazy story that happened to me in Def Jam one night. I bumped into L.A. Reid—it was so weird—and gave him my flier. I told him he needs to check me out and that I’m the next thing coming. He was like, “Ok.” The people that were with me were like, “Are you crazy? That’s L.A. Reid! How could you pass him a flier!” The hunger inside of me let me know that this dude needs to know who I am. He thought I was a star off of that and he just needed the music to back it up.

So you went to Def Jam randomly?

L.A. had been hearing about me for a while now and I happened to meet him in Def Jam one day. I promoted myself and said check me out and he wanted to meet with me. That’s how it came about.

Story Continues...

The situations within Hollywood are "arranged" to meet the "needs" of the artist.




  2. "It’s a long story. After going to different labels and being rejected, I visited Def Jam and I let L.A. Reid hear my music and he fell in love with it."

    Did he fall in love with his "music" or his androgyny?


  4. These fake Black people are really a trip. The reason that they advertise this so called glamorous life style is because after this life they have no where else to go but hell. Don't let them take you with them!!

  5. Why did his mother name him "unique"? Did she look at his gene tails and say, "Oh my that's unique"?

    This person was clearly born with a silver spoon in his mouth. How can anyone say that he financed his own career?


    Save that non sense for someone who lacks common sense!

    This boy or girl had a "sponsor" and it looks like LA Reid is the 1st runner up.

    He look just like Maxwell and lately Maxwell has placed hermaphrodites within his videos! He's obsessed with them as well!

  6. Oh no please don't tell me my boy Maxwell is into this bs. Damn damn damn! Unique looks like Cassie to me not at all like Maxwell. Maxwell should have kept his hair in a fro. that short hair don't look right on him.

  7. Yall know that Maxwell's father was Pueto Rican.

  8. @3:00

    Now you know Maxwell's father was the first to tap that ass.

    AND I heard that Maxwell was upset because his record label made him tone down the gay undertones within his music and this is the reason why it took him so long to come out with a new Album (or CD).

  9. I read about Maxwell's album having too many gay undertones and the label wanted him to change it. I have his 1st 2 albums and they are awesome. I still be rocking them. I hate that he get caught up in the bs.

    His mother is Carribean. I really hope that she didn't let his father spoil him by penetrating him. Maxwell's father and mother were divorced before he died while living in Puerto Rico. Maybe thats why she divorced Max's father. And he moved back to Puerto Rico.

  10. They might give "Unique" some manly shots to appear HARD.

    His singing voice has a male tone but if he change his sex he'll have to take voice lessons to sing like a girl.

  11. Wow this is bugged out that you actually wrote this article about Unique because I actualy know this kid. I mean...KNOW him know him. True that is his real name (no lie) but as for the other theory...ya know...hmmmmm. I'd hurt feelings if I told his family what could possibly be true....dang!!
