Netflix's hip-hop reality competition series Rhythm + Flow kicks off this week, and to celebrate, two of its judges sat down for a conversation with Charlamagne tha God. The 22-minute clip sees Chance the Rapper and T.I. discussing why they joined the project and what they hope to see from future contestants.
When asked if the hip-hop community would be welcoming of an artist who got their start in a reality program, Chance said they would as long as they remain genuine. "As long as you're authentic, as long as you true to your real story," Chance said.
"Artistry, authenticity, individuality, the same way Chance is in his music, I am in my music, and Cardi is in hers," T.I. added. "Each of our presentations are very unique to who we are. We're looking for the next generation's version of that."
The show, which starts on Oct. 9 and will air in parts until Oct. 23, follows Chance, T.I. and Cardi as they search for the hottest young talent in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Atlanta.
