Season 14 – Carlos "King Los" Coleman knows his mission in life. "I want to be the greatest rapper ever," the Baltimore native says with an unwavering confidence. "I'm just trying to exhibit the best rap stuff you ever heard." His goal might sound like a lofty one, but after listening to Los rhyme, it doesn't sound so far-fetched. After releasing his first mixtape in 2008, Los dropped 14 more projects — all of which displayed his expert lyricism. "It's the story of a kid from Baltimore, involved with all kinds of stuff, inspired to be one of the best rappers on the planet," he says about his music. Los's love affair with rapping began when he was just 16 years old, after the murder of his father. He'd write poetry to help cope with the loss, and by the time he turned 18, Los graduated from high school and developed a reputation as a promising MC. By 2005, he signed to Diddy's Bad Boy Entertainment through local Baltimore imprint Bloc Incorporated, but the business end of the deal didn't work out, so he hit the mixtape scene to build a buzz and master his craft. As fate would have it, Diddy continued to seek out King Los and signed him to Bad Boy again in 2012 — this time, without the middleman. With the famed music mogul in his corner, Los continued to grow and develop a reputation as a top-tier MC, sought-after ghostwriter and expert freestyle artist. In 2013, he hit the Billboard charts for the first time in his career on French Montana's "Ocho Cinco." Los became one of hip-hop's most celebrated emerging artists when his 2014 BET Hip-Hop Awards cypher and "Sway in the Morning" radio freestyle garnered millions of views on YouTube.

Comedian Shuler King was born Frank Williams III in Sumter, SC. Known as the kid who cracked jokes, Shuler knew at an early age he was destined to be an entertainer. Shuler grew up in a traditional two-parent household in the Bible Belt of the South, where his parents instilled faith, hard work and education in him and his two siblings. Comedy is his passion, but he took a rather unusual path to get there. Shuler graduated from the University of South Carolina with a B.A. in media arts; while at university, he joined The Mighty Illustrious Zeta Zeta Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Incorporated. His comedy career began while he was a freshman in college after he took the stage for the very first time at the NCO Club on a military base, and the rest is history. In 2013, he graduated from Gupton-Jones College of Funeral Service with a degree in mortuary science. When Shuler isn't on the road performing at comedy clubs and special events across the country, he works as a licensed funeral director and embalmer in Georgia and South Carolina, at his family's funeral business. As Shuler works to keep his family's business and legacy alive, he may be the only comedian/funeral director on the comedy circuit. He has opened for some of the most notable and talented comedians and comediennes in the industry. He credits his parent's strict yet loving upbringing, his harsh surroundings growing up and the state of the country today with giving him his "raw" comedic style. "Comedy isn't about being happy all the time. Comedy is just as much about pain that people endure. When you hear 20,000 people in an arena laugh at a joke, it's because they all can relate to experiencing that same pain," he says. Shuler is one of the most energetic rising comedians in the business. He credits his unwavering faith in God as the calming force in his life, which keeps him pushing forward through the industry's ups and downs. His hilarious social media videos have quickly become fan favorites, and his video post about Donald Trump went viral and was even played on a U.K. television show. The future is definitely bright for Shuler.
