Rhythm and Flow's Shay is Brussels-born but made her name in French rap

Rhythm and Flow first came to Netflix in 2019 and saw Cardi B, Chance The Rapper and T.I judge rappers from all over the USA. Each episode, the contestants give all they’ve got in a bid to impress the judges and make it through to the next round. It was D Smoke who managed to bag the winning title in 2019 and now the Netflix show is back, but this time in France.
