leeway; special consideration. To give someone rhythm may be to give them a pass or go to bat for them because you know them or owe them a favor. Very often used on cop shows, especially NYPD Blue.
I was hoping my landlord would give me some rhythm on the late fee.
It's going to be hard to get this guy bail--I got no rhythm with this judge.
