Cardi B, Chance the Rapper and T.I. are hitting the road to find hip-hop's next big star. 

The rappers have joined forces to find "unsigned, dedicated, and ready" artists for their new Netflix show, "Rhythm + Flow," projected to air in Fall 2019. The trio will serve as the "main judges" for the streaming service's first music competition series and will be joined by other artists and industry vets throughout the 10 hourlong episodes.

According to Variety, Cardi, Chance, and Tip aren't the only big names involved with the show. John Legend is also one of the show's executive producers. 

So, what exactly is "Rhythm + Flow" about and how do you get involved? Well, T.I. explained everything you need to know about the forthcoming series in an Instagram video on Tuesday (November 13). "Basically, we're going to travel the country in all of the hoods, all the studios, all the nightclubs, and even the barbershop, if necessary, to find the next unreleased, underground, hip-hop superstar," he explained. "It's going to be a different approach than anything you've ever seen before. You've never seen a show like this and with us [as] judges the authenticity's going to be through the roof."

Auditions will begin this fall across the U.S., including in the judges’ hometowns of Atlanta, Chicago, and New York, Variety reports. Guest judges from each audition city will also join the panel.
