Show Me the Money 4 contestant One has joined YG Entertainment's impressive roster of idols and rappers.

Daily Sports revealed that One's previous agency D-Business passed the rapper's contract onto YG Entertainment. Additionally, music industry insiders announced that he has already started training with his new company. YG Entertainment is also home to Show Me the Money 3 winner iKON's Bobby and Show Me the Money 4 runner up WINNER's Song Mino.

"YG Entertainment was really interested in One while he was on Mnet's rap competition program Show Me the Money 4. They thought he had the skills to be one of the top rappers on the show," an associate of One shared with Daily Sports.

During his time on Show Me the Money 4 One managed to stand out amongst the 7000 contestants and work his way up to the top sixteen. He joined Zico and Paloalto's team along with Song Mino, ANDUP, and Ja Mezz. Unfortunately, he was eliminated before he could go on any further.

Many fans of Show Me the Money and One have already expressed their excitement over One's switch into YG Entertainment. "YG definitely does pick them right," one fan commented, translated by Netizenbuzz.

"He's already proven his talents and he's handsome to boot so he's got a bright career ahead of him," another said.

One was originally part of D-Business' hip hop duo 1PUNCH. The group debuted earlier this year with the song "Turn Me Back." According to TV Report, his former fellow member Punch will pursue a solo career under 1PUNCH.

As of right now there is no set schedule for One's album release yet.
