One Shot is a one-of-a-kind competition show where MCs compete in front of a panel of judges for the ultimate shot at becoming Hip-Hop’s next biggest star. Each contestant will have a chance to tell his or her own story, but the best is still determined by artistic skill. The outcome is not about who is like-able, rather who is the best performer with the most talent. Rappers will submit a video, build up their votes online and prepare themselves to audition in their selected City. Each week, the show will be broken into three parts, The Audition, The Artist Mentoring, and The Main Event.
The rappers will audition in front of Judges KXNG CROOKED, Tech, and Mike Smith, until a final four is picked to compete in the main event for that City.
Before the main event, the four Rappers chosen will work with Jonathan Hay, Mike Smith, KXNG CROOKED, and Tech on songs for the main event. These four will write with and mentor each Artists to prepare them for the Main Event.
The Main Event in each City will take place in a famous Hip Hop Venue and will have a live audience including many celebrity VIPs from that local City, Professional Athletes, Local DJs, and other TV personalities.
The Main Event will be hosted by Sway and the final four will compete in from of KXNG CROOKED, Tech, Mike Smith, and that week’s celebrity Judge. One winner will be chosen from each City and the 8 City finalists will compete in a season finale in Las Vegas. The season finale will also include performances from several of the Season’s Celebrity Judges, KXNG CROOKED, and also other significant Acts.
