Cardi B., Chance The Rapper And T.I. To Judge A Rap Competition Show For Netflix
If you thought musical competition shows were only limited to network television, you thought wrong. Netflix has a new competition show, produced by John Legend.
The new show, “Rhythm + Flow” is a ten-part hip hop talent search that will begin streaming in 2019.
The judges for the show will include Cardi B., Chance The Rapper and T.I.
While it might seem strange for rappers in their prime (with the exception of T.I.), to participate in a reality show, it doesn’t seem like that much of stretch when you consider the fact that Cardi got her start on Instagram and then reality tv.
Chance The Rapper has also dabbled a bit in television, hosting “Saturday Night Live” and starring in the horror-comedy Slice.
And you know T.I.’s resume with “Family Hustle” and his iconic role in ATL alongside Lauren London.
“Rhythm + Flow” is just one in a string of new reality programming for the streaming service, along with “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” and a new culinary show “The Final Table.”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show will seek to “find and and foster undiscovered hip-hop talent in multiple cities. Cardi B, Chance the Rapper, and T.I. will serve as the three main judges, though additional artists and industry personalities will be announced in the run-up to the premiere.”
