ZackTV1 made his way to Atlanta to network some of the music scene’s up and coming artists. He even caught up with some industry fixtures, including Big Mike of Day26 and Crooked I. Zack was granted backstage access to get a behind the scenes look at the One Shot reality show competition.
One Shot’s website touts its series as “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.”
It further reads:
“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 likeable, 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 until a final six is picked to compete in the main event for that City.
Before the main event, the six Rappers chosen will work with Mike Smith, KXNG CROOKED, and King Tech on songs 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 six will compete in from of KXNG CROOKED, King Tech, Mike Smith, and that week’s celebrity Judge(s). 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.”
Auditions for the program are ongoing. Upcoming cities for auditions include Miami, March 6; San Francisco, March 13; Los Angeles, April 10; Houston, May 15; and New York, May 29.
