Watch Verses and Flow
- 6 Seasons
Verses and Flow is a variety show that differentiates itself from the pack through its format. Music variety shows have been a staple of television for decades, but Verses and Flow distinguishes itself by focusing on spoken word and slam poetry acts. Each episode is introduced and hosted by actor Laz Alonso who acts like an emcee at a coffee shop poetry night. The readers represent a range of newcomers, acclaimed poets and musicians better known for their verses or raps. Topics offer a diverse range of topics from the struggle of fame to the modern pressures of body image. Each episode also features a musical performance from a popular entertainer. The lack of a reality show format provides a more relaxed environment where the artists can perform without the pressures of competition. Guest musicians range from reality star Ruben Studdard to R&B virtuoso Angie Stone. Poets include actor Malcolm-Jamal Warner and Raheem DeVaughn.
