One Shot (BET) – Starts 23rd August
An X Factor style music competition for rappers where the winner will get a record deal, a $100k cash prize and a year worth of free phone data usage. It goes to one of five cities where they hold an open audition in front of 3 judges who whittle down the entrants to 6 finalists.
There the 6 perform live in a club in front the judges who are joined by 2 famous members of the industry, as well of a crowd of rap fans. There they have one song each and the two best get put forward to the final in New York.
It’s like any other singing competition in the way it’s set up with the main difference being that the rappers perform their material. It’s nothing groundbreaking but if you like rap and talent competitions it does a job of sorts.
