T.I., Chance The Rapper and Cardi B. are teaming up to give unsigned hip-hop artists a chance at stardom. The three are serving as the core judges in Netflix’s first-ever music competition show, Rhythm + Flow. Produced by Emmy Award winner John Legend, the ten-part talent search series will arrive on the streaming platform in 2019.
In a video he posted for his 9.3 million followers on Instagram, T.I. spoke about how committed he and his cohosts are to finding the best of the best: “We gon’ travel the country, man—and all of the hoods, all of the studios, all of the nightclubs, even the barbershops if necessary—to find the next unreleased underground hip-hop superstar.”
Cardi B. posted a video for her 35.5 million followers letting them know what she wanted to see from contestants. “I’m looking for the diamond in the rough. I’m looking for somebody who’s gonna stick,” she said.
