Celebs You Didn't Know Had Dominican Roots

In Honor of Dominican Independence Day, we've compiled a meaty list of celebrities who have Dominican roots.

The contributions of Dominican-Americans in the entertainment industry are hefty and the island has given us some of our favorite rappers, actors, reality stars and countless pro-athletes. So why not shine a spotlight on both the DR and the talents!

At the top of the list of celebs who are either full or part Dominican we have: Cardi B, Alex Rodriguez, Amara La Negra, Fabolous, Dascha Polanco and Dave East.
