One of Canada’s premiere rappers, One Shot, is set to release his debut single “Popular Demand” off of his highly anticipated mixtape: “True Colors”, which is set to release on April 8th and will be available as a FREE download from his fanpage.
Many say his style is similar to that of Drake and Fabolous, but his unique delivery and masterful wordplay is what makes him stand out from other rappers in Canada. He is notoriously known for his sharply inventive verses and single takes in the booth, his lyrical talent is opening the ears of many and it is only a matter of time until the world knows about One Shot.
“Popular Demand” is about One Shot’s accomplishments in the underground rap scene of Montreal, Quebec and how he is taking it by storm. A stellar video directed by Montreal director Justin Agustin has been shot and will drop on April 2nd.
One Shot was born in Pakistan yet raised in Montreal, he won’t depict that typical rapper. However, it is his unique style and versatility that draws you in. Growing up listening to Jay-Z, One Shot was clearly inspired by hip-hop, but R&B, rock and Desi music have also shaped his song writing and beat choice. Now, he is unstoppable and just one step away from proving that dreams come true.
Beyond the new single and mixtape, One Shot is working on a new album scheduled to release in late 2011. The yet to be titled LP will be available via iTunes and his website. All he needs is one shot and one take to prove that he is not only the best rapper in the Montreal scene, but the best new rapper, period.
