In 2011, Mans1 was crowned first ever swiss champion in the final of the “End of the Weak” improvisation competition. Then, he took part in the world final with opponents like Junk (Canada), Kenyon (France), Tenchoo (UK) and also KayM (USA), the final winner.
The following day, still feeling the energy of the competition - with KayM filled of euphoria after his victory -, they both recorded straight in one take the song “The Spotlight” on a musical track composed by Tayreeb.
Summer 2014 then, KayM and Mans1 met again during the US final of Mc’s competition at New-York’s Pyramid Club. In this legendary new-yorkish rap scene, where the competition actually was founded in the early 2000’s, they decided to shoot their video-clip on “Spotlight”.
In the glimpse of a sunset, they shot the video in Union City, on the other side of Hudson’s river, with the great collaboration of OneLove from Session at the PM crew.
