One Mic is a South African freestyle rap-battle reality competition television series that showcases upcoming and underground rappers battling each other through the show's different competitive elements: The Written Material, The Lyrical Subject, Pass the Mic and The Freestyle Battle.
The new season is hosted by Bontle Modiselle, who replaces DJ Doowap from the first season. Also new to the cast is new judge JR, who replaces the late Linda "Pro" Mkhize.
Season 2, comprising 32 rappers, features a different format to the first season. This time the rappers battle each in a league-type of format, with one rapper eliminated each week.
There are four regional groups with eight rappers in each group. Each week, one of these four groups competes against each other; one is eliminated and the others move on to the next round.
For the semifinals, the remaining four contestants represent all regions. In Episode 26, the Grand Finale, there are two remaining - and the winner takes all.
There are 26 episodes in Season 2. The first 13 episodes aired on SABC1 from 7 February to 2 May, 2019, before the season went on hiatus. Season 2 resumed with Episode 14 on Thursday 17 October, 2019.
