This is undoubtedly a June event on Netflix. A French adaptation of the American show “Rhythm + Flow”, which was broadcast in 2019 on the same platform, “Nouvelle École” is a modern music competition in which French-speaking rap and hip-hop watchers compete.
A reality TV show in which twenty-five nominees, from freestyle to battle, will attempt to win the €100,000 prize in front of a highly demanding jury, made up of Niska, SCH (who won notably the most broadcast album award during the 37th edition of Victoires de la Musique) and Belgian rapper Vanessa Lisnicki, better known as Shay.
The three artists recognized in the urban cultural milieu will go in search of new talents, each in their hometown: Paris for the first, Marseille for the second and Brussels for the third. They pleaded, “We’ve both gone back to our cities to find a nugget,” before making sure their fillies “will face everything a rapper can know.”
On the menu: Write and produce an original track and direct a video. JuL will also appear as a guest. The first four episodes will air on June 9, the next three episodes will air a week later, and the ending on June 23.
“New School”, available on Netflix.
