The hit Netflix series – which mounts a search for Rap’s next big star – is returning for its long-awaited sophomore season, which will be anchored by new judges DJ Khaled, Latto, and Luducris. 

Hip-Hop titan Eminem will also appear in a guest judge role.

Originally premiering in 2019, season one was led by Cardi B, Chance The Rapper, and T.I.

Its inaugural installment was won by D. Smoke, who has gone on to net GRAMMY and NAACP Image Award nominations.

Now, a whole new crop of hopefuls will be looking to take the crown – and the cash prize of $250,000.

Ahead of its debut later this year, check out a sneak peek at season 2 of ‘Rhythm + Flow’ below…

Speaking in a statement, Brandon Riegg, Vice President of Nonfiction Series, Netflix said:

“We are taking things up a notch with a new cast of global hitmakers in our judges and a new pool of undiscovered artists. Hip-hop continues to evolve so it’ll be thrilling to see Ludacris, Latto and DJ Khaled mentoring contestants during their journeys, along with legendary guest judges like Eminem providing their own brand of insight and advice. We saw this type of life-changing mentorship play out with past contestants whose musical geniuses reached massive audiences across our global platform.”

Jesse Collins & Dionne Harmon, Executive Producers, ‘Rhythm + Flow,’ added:

“We are so excited to partner with Netflix for the second season of Rhythm + Flow. This season features a powerhouse panel of judges, each with a distinct and influential role in Hip-Hop culture. In this significant moment for the genre, the focus extends beyond the music alone. We’re seeking unconventional voices and authentic stories that peel back layers and invite fans to immerse themselves in the contestants’ world as we spotlight the continually evolving spirit of Hip-Hop.”

We’ll be watching! Will you?
