"RHYTHM + FLOW" JUDGES
★ Cardi B
★ Chance the Rapper
★ Tip "T.I." Harris
In statements for Los Angeles Time, the urban artist said that "Many people wonder how I was going to judge a competition, because I am very new, but I know a successful record when I hear one."
His debut album, "Invasion of Privacy," won in the rap category at the 2019 Grammy Awards and is still number 51 on the Billboard 200 after 78 weeks on the list. “Right now there are so many good rappers on Instagram, but they just don't have star quality. I'm looking for that. ”
Meanwhile, Chance the Rapper, another of the judges admitted that “he had seen a million voice or talent competition programs that were transmitted in a certain way. And that was not something I was involved in. ” The 26-year-old artist also points out that "this was my chance to leave my mark on (a talent show) and see it the way I would like to see one of these shows."
For the producers of “Rhythm + Flow”, the desire to authentically document the reality of life that is based on hip-hop and is reflected in music moved them away from traditional television. “Originally, we were going to take it to one of the big networks, and in fact we found it there. But large networks, without offending, could never capture that environment, ”said Mike Jackson, producer of the program.
“Netflix immediately got what we were trying to do. They saw the importance of a show like this and knew the impact it could have, ”he revealed.
