Who said that you had to be in the industry for ten years or more in order to get noticed? To shine light on this HOT phenomenon that the world is now being introduced to and will soon be a major fan of, picture this…Summer late 2009, in just five short months Chosen One began his career in a group called 3MG that had produced over 75 tracks, acquires almost 600,000 hits & plays collectively between two major social networking and music promotion sites; hosted a weekly YouTube shown known as BlamTV; had two major smash singles, title “I’m Famous” and “Fantasy” featuring Swazy Baby and had played on over 350 national and international airwaves; had over 5m246 purchased downloads; and have been honored to collaborate with some of today’s hottest artists such as Trey Songz, Yung Joc, Young Dro, Pleasure P, Juney Boomdata, and B.O.B., just to name a few. Not to mention the numerous interviews, state-to-state promotional tours, regional performances, and fan base that grew by the second, and let me knot fail to mention he was only 18.
Now as a solo artist, (19)Chosen One, born Michael McCoy in Atlanta, GA is back carrying a street cockiness that is firmly backed by his talent. With a distinct freestyle, flow, and delivery that is amazingly magnetic and virtually seducing. With his certified wily-type swag, Chosen One produces, and writes songs with a certain cleverness and appeal. Recognizing his talents as a rapper during school and community freestyle battles, Chosen One knew his life’s purpose was to create songs that everyone would love. Chosen owes much of his musical influences to some of today’s hottest artists such as T.I., Jay Z and Young Jeezy. With those influences, Chosen One still is quick to let you know that his style is very unique. “I (label) my style of rap as “unidentified” simply because it’s no one [else] that sounds like me or my music”, proclaims Chosen One.
When writing, producing, and performing, Chosen One gives his audience 150% because he knows and believes that maintaining a high level confidence will resonate through his work and all the world over will soon come to recognize, love and respect him for what he does, how he does it, who he is, and why he works so hard. “I am very confident in myself”, Chosen One states, “because I feel like I am the next Big Thing in America and it’s no way people will respect my work if I don’t have confidence in myself and my music.” Chosen One recently released his Mix tape “My Way of Life” which grew his fan base in the South very high. Chosen One is showing he can not only stand on his own but can stand strong and offer the industry what they need, originality, versatility, and great music. Chosen One also had a good year landing a placement on the #1 show in America “The Game”. This young Phenom is making noise in all the right areas of the Hip-Hop/R&B scene.
