Rapper One, who was a contestant on hip hop competition show “Show Me the Money 4,” has joined YG Entertainment.
Industry insiders told the press that the rapper has recently joined YG Entertainment, and that he has already started training with the agency. One associate told Daily Sports, “YG was really interested in One when he was on ‘Show Me the Money 4.’ They thought he had the skills to be one of the top rappers on the show. He also has looks of an idol. He still needs to improve, but he’s a real gem. He is currently training, so there isn’t a set schedule for an album release yet.”
One’s previous agency D-Business has passed on their contract with the rapper to YG Entertainment.
A representative from YG also confirmed that One has joined the company.
One debuted as 1Punch earlier this year, with the song “Turn Me Back.”
