Netflix Announces Hip-Hop Competition Show ‘Rhythm + Flow’ with Judges Cardi B, Chance the Rapper and T.I.

Netflix is officially taking its shot at a musical competition series with Hip-Hop competition show Rhythm + Flow.

The series, produced by John Legend, Jeff Gaspin, Jesse Collins, Nikki Boella, Jeff Pollack, Mike Jackson and Ty Stiklorius, has tapped Cardi B, Chance the Rapper and T.I. to serve as the three main judges and also serve as executive producers of the show.

The 10-episode hourlong multi-city competition series will be aimed at finding and cultivating the next breakout hip-hop artist.

Auditions will begin this fall across the United States, including the judges’ hometowns of Atlanta, Chicago, and New York. In each audition city, established rappers who hail from that city will serve as guest judges to help seek out the best unsigned hip-hop artists.

Rhythm + Flow is set to premiere in fall 2019.
