HOW CREATOR MIKE SMITH GRABS SWAY, DJ KHALED, TI AND THE GAME FOR ONE SHOT.
Show creator, Mike Smith, singer/songwriter has united hip-hop’s most influential tastemakers to find the next great MC for his new show, One Shot. Smith alongside Sway, Kxng Crooked, King Tech and a slew of celebrity judges including DJ Khaled, T.I., The Game, RZA, Tech 9, Charlamagne Tha God, DJ Drama, Twista and E-40; will help vet thousands of aspiring rappers to find hip-hop’s next superstar. The show, already picked up by a major network, is expected to premiere this summer and will provide the winner with $100,000 and a record contract.
“The concept for One Shot, is basically hip hop American idol. We brought in Sway and and that was the birth of it. We ended up getting the best celebrity judges because we have all worked together before and there is so much respect for each other. Sway is an icon, King Tech has helped break so many artists, Crook has made it for so long, and I have been fortunate to have written and performed with so many great hip hop artists.” – Mike Smith
