The Rap revolution will be televised…on Netflix!
In its continued quest for domination in the visual arena, the streaming giant has announced its first ever music competition – ‘Rhythm & Flow.’
And in a huge coup, it’s secured some of the most notable names in Hip-Hop.
For Cardi B, T.I, and Chance The Rapper have all signed on as judges.
Set for a Fall 2019 debut, the inaugural season of the show is comprised of ten hour-long episodes.
In development for over a year, the series will set about trying to discover the next breakout Hip-Hop star.
Auditions will commence in the US this Fall and make stops in various cities – including the judges’ hometowns of Atlanta, Chicago, and New York.
In a unique angle, a renown rapper from each city visited will serve as a guest judge alongside Cardi, Chance, and T.I.
‘Rhythm & Flow’ is executive produced by John Legend, Jesse Collins, Gaspin, and Ty Stiklorius. The show’s judging trio also nab exec producer credits too.
Netflix have proven that they have a knack for remoulding traditional formats and developing compelling new concepts. As such, we’re all sorts of excited to see the twist they’ll put on the talent-search.
On paper, they’ve assembled an eclectic crop of names, who are current too. So again, exciting times.
