Thirty-year-old Old Man Saxon brought his A-game to the stage in episode 1. So, let’s get to know Old man Saxon, Rhythm and Flow’s multi-talented act…
Old Man Saxon’s Rhythm and Flow performance
Old Man Saxon had the judges laughing before he’d even started his performance.
He wears a suit on stage in memory of his late father. Hailing from Denver, Colorado, Old Man Saxon entered the stage singing: “Hidey hidey hidey ho, hodey hodey hodey hey… I’m ready to start my musical performance now.”
At the end of his impressive performance, Chance the Rapper commended Old Man Saxon on his act. He said: “From the content to the delivery, to the performance, you’ve got my thumbs up.”
