Cardi B, T.I. and Chance The Rapper Will Be Judges on Netflix’s First Music Competition Series
Netflix is officially making its first foray into the music competition series ring. As Deadline earlier today (Nov. 13), the streaming service has greenlit a new series set to focus on hip-hop talent. Excitingly, Cardi B, T.I. and Chance The Rapper have been tapped to be judges on the show.
Per the announcement, the series will span 10 hour-long episodes in its debut season, and it's set to premiere in fall 2019. According to reports, the show, titled Rhythm + Flow, has been in development at Netflix for over a year now.
The show, which will be executive-produced by John Legend and Jesse Collins, will begin having auditions across the country this year. On top of that, a handful of yet-to-be-announced established rappers and industry leaders from each city will also serve as guest judges.
The premise for Rhythm + Flow is described by Netflix as the “search for the next breakout hip-hop star.” Given the expansive industry knowledge and vibrant personalities of each rapper set to be a judge, this show just might be destined to be an instant hit.
