TV Review: Rhythm + Flow


This week I started watching Rhythm + Flow. It's like a Rap X-Factor, where contestants compete for a prize of $250,000, supervised by Chance The Rapper, Cardi B and T.I. I lost interest in these type of competition shows years ago but I decided to give this a look because the production quality is high and I was interested to see how rap and hip-hop content would be delivered and judged, because I know very little about it.

The first four episodes cover auditions and are enjoyable. A range of different artists and styles are on show and you start getting introduced to (and invested in) the contestants. The show gets addictive from episode five though, when the competition moves to knock-out and the contestants go head to head in cyphers, battle wraps and music videos. Episodes are released in stages, and the final set is due to air on October 23.
