Earlier this week, Netflix announced it greenlit a show titled “Rhythm + Flow.” It’s “a classic, flashy competition series, but with a twist, focusing specifically on hip-hop music, which has never been at the forefront of any major unscripted music TV competition,” according to Variety

“We’re going to travel the country and all the hoods, all the studios, all the nightclubs, even the barbershops to find the next, unreleased, underground hip-hop superstar,” T.I. said in a video posted to Instagram.

The three rappers aren’t the only A-listers a part of the project. John Legend, Jesse Collins and a few others are executive producing it, and additional artists and industry veterans are expected to sign on. 

The show is set to launch in fall 2019 with auditions beginning this fall across the United States, including in Atlanta.
