BET has recently announced their new hip hop competition series, "One Shot". Executive producers Mike Smith, Sway, Kxng Crooked, & King Tech have created a show far from your normal music competition series. The show was created to showcase the best up-and-coming hip hop artists rather than finding new talent or having artists battle it out.
"One Shot" will be hosted by Sway and will feature plenty of celebrity judge appearances including: DJ Khaled, T.I., The Game, RZA, Tech N9ne, Charlamagne Tha God, DJ Drama, Twista, & E-40.
These judges will help vet thousands of aspiring rappers based on their skills, showmanship, & stage presence in search of hip-hop's new superstar. "One Shot" is now TV's only platform to specifically find & showcase new hip hop artists. The show premieres this summer and will provide the winner with a $100,000 prize & a record deal.
Aspiring rappers will be able to submit their videos for a chance to be on the show & they can visit MyOneShot.tv to learn more about submissions!!!
