Slaughterhouse rapper Crooked I, radio/TV host Sway Calloway, The Wake Up Show‘s DJ King Tech and SMH Records C.E.O. Mike Smith, will all partner up to present rap competition series, One Shot.
The One Shot events will be held in Charlotte, Atlanta, Miami, New York, Chicago, Houston, San Francisco and Los Angeles. A special local guest from each city will join the judging panel at every stop.
Four finalists (one from each city) will be selected to perform at the grand season finale in Las Vegas for the ultimate win. This event will also feature appearances by professional athletes, local DJs and TV personalities.
In addition to the stage performances and the judges’ breakdown, the rappers will also undergo a “background check” conducted by Hip Hop journalists Kim Osorio and Kathy Iandoli. This information will help spotlight each contestant’s story of inspiration.
This is strictly for Hip Hop,” says Crooked. “If you’re up and coming, I’m just like you. I had the same struggle. I had the same everything you got. This is for us.”
