Netflix grabs Cardi B, Chance The Rapper & T.I. for their upcoming music competition show
Netflix has green-lit one of the most anticipated series we’ve probably ever written about since Cardi B, Chance The Rapper and T.I. have been tapped to judge a ten-part hip-hop talent search dubbed Rhythm + Flow. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show will be produced by John Legend and his Get Lifted Film Co. and will be streamed on Netflix.
The show aims to find the next big hip-hop breakout star and auditions began this Fall across America and of course, cities included Atlanta, Chicago, and New York, paying respects to the three judges.
All three judges are no rookies when it comes to television shows and movies. Cardi has previously starred in VH1’s Love & Hip Hop: New York before her bubbling rap success, while T.I.’s still filming his Family Hustle series. Chance dropped off his thriller Slice earlier this year and just announced that he’s working on an upcoming feature-length musical based on Chicago teens.
No word on a release date, but the series is expected to arrive early 2019. Keep it locked for the official trailer.
