*BET has recently announced their new hip hop competition series, “One Shot.” Executive producers Mike Smith, Sway, Kxng Crooked, and 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.
will be hosted by Sway and will feature plenty of celebrity judge appearances including: DJ Khaled, T.I., The Game, RZA, Tech 9, Charlamagne Tha God, DJ Drama, Twista and E-40.
These judges will help vet thousands of aspiring rappers based on their skills, showmanship, and stage presence in search of hip-hop’s new superstar.
“One Shot” is now TV’s only platform to specifically find and showcase new hip hop artists. The show premiers this summer and will provide the winner with a $100,000 prize and a record deal.
