Last night was the finale of Cardi B, Chance The Rapper, and T.I’s new Netflix show, “Rhythm + Flow.” The show is a competition in which the three judges hit the streets to find the next rap superstar.
The finale of the show featured the final four contestants; D Smoke, Flawless, Londynn B and Troyman.
The winner of the show was D Smoke, a rapper out of Inglewood, California. For the finale, the rappers got to work with some of the biggest producers in the industry and had to perform the song they made with them. D Smoke’s performance was phenomenal. Chance said he had goosebumps after the performance. Cardi gushed about D Smoke’s performance, saying, “I really see a star.” Then mimicking a phone call she said, “Helloooo, Kendrick Lamar! I have a friend for you!”

In reaction to winning, D Smoke said, “I’m overwhelmed, man. I got my family over there, my loved ones are here. I shared this stage with some incredible contestants. I appreciate y’all. I appreciate everybody, man. I’m overwhelmed.”
Chance then took a moment to give D Smoke advice about how to spend his $250,000 grand prize money.
“This isn’t like a lot of the other contest shows,” he said. “It’s a non-contractual $250,000 that is going to you to be spent however you want it. I just want to tell you that the best thing you could do is invest in yourself.”
