Rhythm + Flow offers a strong new take on reality television music competitions for even the most jaded viewers.

Even if "Rhythm + Flow" were half as entertaining as it is, the Cardi Show at least makes for some incredible television.

Oct 2, 2019 | Full Review…

It makes older talent shows look outdated beyond repair, as if they are still on the hunt for Britain's Next Vaudeville Superstar.

Oct 9, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The magic of songwriting suffuses every episode. TV may be saturated with music competitions, but Rhythm + Flow is one of a kind.

Oct 9, 2019 | Full Review…

While the ways in which Rhythm + Flow differentiates itself from its musical competition predecessors are minor, they are enough to render the series so.

Oct 21, 2019 | Full Review…

Despite the show's seductive glamour and the steady focus on the prize money, it celebrates music and images on the right-minded tip.

Nov 1, 2019 | Full Review…

Edgy hip-hop talent competition has cursing, strong lyrics.

Oct 24, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

For Rhythm + Flow to disregard many of the alternative artists who appeared on the show disservices them and makes the series appear a bit out of touch.

Oct 9, 2019 | Full Review…

Filled with top tier guests... Rhythm + Flow aims to be the unvarnished search for a Hip Hop superstar and mostly succeeds.

Oct 10, 2019 | Full Review…

There's some real talent in this initial episode, and what we really love is that no one is telling them that they have the stuff to be a star, like we sometimes hear on other shows.

Oct 10, 2019 | Full Review…

Rhythm + Flow's lean 10-episode run... certainly makes the singing shows of old feel bloated and obsolete.

Oct 21, 2019 | Full Review…

Rhythm + Flow is standard-issue in its format and structure, but the personalities of the hosts and contestants keep it engaging.

Audience Reviews for Rhythm + Flow: Season 1

    How are you going to call a show, "Rhythm & Flow," and hardly any of the rappers can actually flow? I get that there is skill in doing both, but a rap battle is supposed to be freestyle, not a rehearsed performance. Also, what's with these judges? Their picks are horrible, which makes sense since it reflects the quality of music they put out themselves. There are so many great freestyle rappers across the country. This is really insulting to all those people who actually freestyle and would put most of these contestants to shame.

    Awesome show that feels like people are being so much more real than other contest shows.

    Excellent show! Giving a new generation of youngsters an opportunity to reach for the stars!

    I loved the show! Somewhat like American Idol but far more talent. The contestants not only rap, but write their own songs, which is huge. The first few episodes were pretty slow but overall a great show. I hope they do more seasons.

    great entertainment. Judges final decision on winner was correct. All the finalists deserved to be there. I really enjoyed the show. Kia Ora from New Zealand. Congratulates DSMOKE! Cant wait for season 2. Hurry Up! Im already having R&F withdrawals.

    As someone who grew up on musical competitions, this is the first time (in the words of Chance the Rapper) I've come across a contestant that I "really believed in-believed in." Not only was the winner given a (more ethical) non-contractual award, but the show provided amazing resources to the contestants from features on singles by major R&B singers, perform live with a band, make a music video, and also the ability to work with incredible producers. TI, Chance, and Cardi also had a great, engaging dynamic. They also humanized the competition, gave compliments often, and contextualized their constructive criticism. The only reason why I ommit a star is because the designers of the competition put the contestants under unrealistic time pressures that I believe were unfair. Regardless, my favorite contestant won. So 🙃

    Love Love Love What can I say its a great ulternative to the talent shows on primetime tv. Its so raw and cut throat, you can't help but feel the raw emotion in each person.
  • Oct 12, 2019
    Cardi has no place between Chance and Tip . Her sole presence is an insult to the Legends present besides her. In the first episode she's clearly hammered and can't even speak straight...what a shame!! Once you forget her, R+F is not so bad. Yes some decisions of the judges are questionable and biased. But overall, I can't deny the talent and the touching back story of some of the participants in there. We'll see for the rest! Lex

    Horrible, cardi shouldn't be a judge in a hiphop competition when she doesn't write her own raps :/

    Best reality show ever
