Rhythm and Flow: Meet Nikee Turbo
Nikee Turbo graced our screens during episode 4 of Rhythm and Flow.
The 27-year-old comes from St Louis, Missouri.
Nikee’s eye-catching wardrobe choice had a lot of meaning behind it as he explained following his first audition that he took the opportunity to take part in the show in order to “break generational curses”.
He explained the reason he went on the show was for his mum and said: “She said son, you go there and make them don’t forget you. You shine bright. I went to the store and found the brightest jacket I could get. My drip is energy.”

During each performance on Rhythm and Flow, Nikee pulled out his signature dance move – the Turbo Step.
The rapper had judge Chance the Rapper in stitches as he twisted from side to side in his sequin bomber jacket.
