Mysterious, born Oscar Domino III is rapidly creating a name for himself and independent label Mysterious Entertainment in the world of entertainment. As for most artists, Mysterious started off bobbing and weaving his way through the “sharks” and “vultures” looking to take advantage of upcoming artists and eventually discovered an empty vessel he quickly claimed as his own. In 2002, Mysterious was asked to host the talent auditions for E.A.R.S. (Emerging Artists and Rising Stars) Talent Showcase in Fairbanks, Alaska after his performance at Club Underground. He, in collaboration with the local radio station 98.5 The Wolf and other industry professionals, hosted and judged an array of talent where the winner performed live on Showtime. In 2005 Mysterious joined forces with other hip hop and R&B artists in Manhattan, Kansas and Kansas City, Kansas for a Juneteenth Celebration sponsored by the NAACP. Afterwards, he released his 2nd project, The Realist, which created a serious buzz in the Mid-West. On this project, he worked with Brandon Langford, (BLang) from the rap group 3rd Degree out of Garry, Indiana. This collaboration has been described as the “one of the better collabs...” by UBL.com, American Idol Underground and several other online sources. Mysterious has undoubtedly showed that he possess the skills to be successful in this industry. Producing, songwriting, graphic designing, and marketing are just the tip of the tip of the iceberg for this rising star. There is no wonder why his current project, Certified Hustler, has received great reviews and is highly anticipated.
