Big Mouf' Bo comes from a family of artists and is an incredible performer and lyricist.
"You have an amazing performance, lyricism and all-around presence," Chance the Rapper gushes about Big Mouf' Bo after her turn on the Cypher round. "You brought that again. It was awesome," he says.
When we first meet her in Chicago, 25-year-old Bo's preliminary performance blows away judges and viewers alike. Her verse is equal parts rap and poetry, and we learn she comes from a musical family — her brother, a rapper and grandfather a jazz singer.
"It's funny that people say that," she says when they comment on how poetic Bo's verses are.
"I never performed slam poetry... I didn't start taking music seriously until my serious year of high school. I spent much of my time before then focused on playing basketball."
Does Big Mouf' Bo win Rhythm + Flow? SPOILERS!
Bo makes it really far into Rhythm + Flow. She beats out the rest of her Chicago peers and lands among the Top 8 on the whole show.
At one point, she gets on the nerves of the judges during the Battle round and just barely advances.
But Big Mouf' Bo is ultimately asked to pack her bags, after debuting her song "Capitol Hill" during the Music Video round.
"This video is not it," Chance the Rapper says upon seeing it. "the video did have a lot of wide shots that weren't too great," Big Mouf' Bo admitted. "But the thing that got me was that they weren't feeling the song."
Now that she's home, Bo is focusing on a full-length album called Anger Management. "I haven't released a project since high school," she says, per The Chicago Tribute, "so I'm looking forward to this new project." "The show was just a great learning experience," she added. "Probably the biggest lesson I took from it was just to relax and breathe."
Rhythm + Flow is streaming on Netflix. New episodes come out Wednesdays at 3 a.m. ET.
