"Unique Sound"

The rapper, whose deep voice has seen him compared to Tupac Shakur and the Notorious B.I.G., has been at this for the past decade — not only writing music, but later managing Keep Pushin Entertainment. He's just gotten home from his second time at South by Southwest, where he was one of the only white rappers in the Coast 2 Coast Live showcase. - The Inlander

"Mentioned over four other times in local publications and newspapers"

From write ups for record release parties and concerts to an article about winning a "battle of the bands" and being the only hip-hop artist in the battle. - Spokesman Review, The Inlander, SFCC Newspaper

"Bustle and Flow"

“There are less than a dozen professional studios in Spokane that are trying to build a scene out here and keep it going,” says Nick Klepacki, also known as Unique. “Right now we’re trying to focus on hip-hop and that specific demographic. We’ll kind of see how things go then, and take it from there.” - The Inlander

 Unique is the self proclaimed “Dopest in the Northwest”. He also says that he is ready to be at the top of the game and become the “Dopest in Hip-hop”. Unique’s fan base continues to grow everyday because of his descriptive imagery, colossal punch lines, and intelligent word play. Not to mention a deep voice inflection that at times resembles the late Tupac Shakur and a flow that has the slight bounce of a modern Notorious B.I.G. (not a typical comparison for a white rapper I might add). His lyrics tell stories of overcoming obstacles, staying motivated, and trying to rise above the restraints that society has set. Unique also speaks on pain, spirituality, politics, street life, relationships, sex, and partying. With such a wide range of topics you can expect to see a large mix of different backgrounds and ethnicities listening to Unique’s music. Whether male or female it is easy to relate and become a fan.

Born on June 7th of 1986 in Spokane, WA, Unique was always infatuated with music. He started beat boxing at a young age and started writing rhymes at age 11. His stage name was given to him by a close childhood friend because of his high level of creativity and his ability to succeed when all the cards where stacked against him. Unique recorded his first song at age 14 and dropped his first independent album Eternal (2006) at the age of 20. Since then he has released a steady stream of albums and mix tapes (seven releases total) including his most recent and most anticipated album the A Day Closer LP (2013). His total independent sales have reached over 20,000 units, not to mention over 100,000 streams and downloads with very little promotion and no major marketing. Unique also has close to 1,000 performances under his belt including opening for the likes of Naughty By Nature, Do or Die, Scarface, E-40, Twista, Nipsey Hussle, Ying Yang Twins, Rittz, and Obie Trice just to name a few. He is now working on his next project entitled "Going Through It" and has scheduled it to be released on September 23rd of 2014 with a national tour to follow.

Unique remains one hundred percent independent and owns his own company, Keep Pushin Entertainment LLC. He also has experience in recording, mixing, and production. With his multiple talents and his ambition to succeed it is expected that Unique will soon be an internationally recognized Hip-hop artist with a career that will define longevity.
