It’s only been a few weeks since the Migos’ trap trio released their long-awaited album “Culture III”. For Offset (now streaming on Apple Music), however, the album release was no reason to keep his expensively clad feet still. Together with HBO Max, the rapper worked on the streetwear show “The Hype”. Offset not only co-produced the series, he can also be seen there as a juror.

“The Hype” is based on the classic concept of a competition show: Over eight episodes, ten aspiring designers have to face a wide variety of tasks in the field of streetwear until a winner emerges at the end. According to a press release from Warner Media, high demands are placed on the participants.
“The jury will be the unique DNA of competing streetwear[-Outfits] , which should combine fashion, music, art and lifestyle in order to further develop the concept of the catwalk and to find the balance between art and commerce.”
(“The panel of judges will critique the competing streetwear’s unique DNA, combining fashion, music, art and lifestyle to refine the idea of a “runway” and the balance between art and commerce.“)
Offset will cast the jury alongside Emmy-nominated costume designer Marni Senofonte and Bephi Burkett, founder of Bephies Beauty Supply. The show is hosted by Speedy Morman. The victory will be rewarded with a whopping prize money of 150,000 US dollars as well as a collaboration with the online marketplace StockX.
HBO Max is now releasing the official trailer for the show.

As the trailer reveals, some special guests will be invited to the show. Among them are also big names of US rap: Cardi B will stand at her husband’s side in an episode. Wiz Khalifa and A$AP Ferg are also on the guest list. The start of the show is currently dated August 12.
Just recently, Offset was also a guest on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”, where he spoke with guest host Anthony Anderson about the show, among other things:

Offsets Fashion Sense
It’s not surprising that HBO Max is joining forces with Offset of all people. As a fashion-conscious rapper, he has already proven his drip and his sense of fashion with countless outfits. On Twitter, however, Offset attracted somewhat confused glances a few months ago when he wrote there that other rappers would only wear Nike and Jordan sneakers again because of him.
Even if this statement was perhaps a bit questionable – he always masters the sneaker game. At the end of last year, Offset was featured in Cardi B’s Instagram story, where the two talk about his collection of shoes, which are said to have now exceeded the 3000 mark.
