Reality Television is a

Rap Reality series “One Shot”

FINALLY a reality show that makes sense to me!!! Hosted by the one and only Sway, now rap has it’s own reality show series called “One Shot.” I checked out the contest site and there are some hot entries already…can’t wait to see what develops throughout this series.

With cats like Crooked I, T.I. and The Game on the panel we know there is a great chance we’ll get some real real outta this! DJ Khaled of course knows how to take artists to an epic level, so the winner and the other standouts have a good shot to get somewhere. Let’s not forget the addition of Tech N9ne, bruh has accomplished some amazing things in music and in business as an INDEPENDENT…he and Travis know how to get it done right.

With the loss of BET’s 106 & Park, Hip-Hop’s new wave of artists continue to have less and less LEGITIMATE platforms to showcase their talent. I’m putting some hopeful vibes out there that we are going to get something epic from Hip-Hop in 2015 and that “One Shot” will be the platform to bring it to pass!!! #OfficialHype

*sidenote* I’m STILL really PO’d at Sway and crew for naming Rick Ross “Emcee” of The Year sometime back…yes I’m holding a grudge on that BS…he’s a great rapper and businessman, NOT an “Emcee.” I’m hopeful “One Shot” will provide some redemption for that!!! IJS


The countdown begins as one of Rap’s first reality competition shows ever prepares to hit television and with it comes an A-list lineup of Hip-Hop’s finest.

Earlier this Fall, rapper/mogul KXNG CROOKED (bka Crooked I) announced on Sway In the Morning that he would be delivering an all-rap competition series for 2015. The show is called One Shot, as Crooked — flanked by Sway, King Tech, and SMH Records CEO Mike Smith — will travel to eight cities across the country on the hunt for talent. The winner will take home a grand prize of $100,000 and a record deal with SMH Records.

The stakes have gotten higher, as each week contestants will perform for celebrity judges to show them what they’ve got. The best of the best are on the roster. T.I., The Game, DJ Khaled, are among the most recently added to the One Shot celebrity judges pool. They will join the likes of RZA, Twista, Tech N9ne, Scarface, E-40, The Breakfast Club’s Charlamagne Tha God, Joell Ortiz of Slaughterhouse, DJ Drama and more to come of the star-studded roster of Hip-Hop heavyweights who will judge the performers from week to week.

For months, rappers from all corners of the country have submitted their video entries to MyOneShot.TV in the hopes of getting their “one shot” at fame once they try out in their respective cities. Now, with the added bonus of rap celebrity judges, the pressure is on. Contestants will travel to their city, following their video submission, for an in-person tryout before Horseshoe G.A.N.G., KXNG CROOKED, King Tech, and Mike Smith.

via T.I., The Game, Tech N9ne, DJ Khaled, RZA, sign on as Celebrity Judges for Rap’s first reality competition series ‘One Shot’.
