Offset serves as a co-signer (judge) and producer on The Hype. A lover of upscale streetwear, the Migos rapper has established himself as one of the major players in the fashion world with a keen ability to mesh streetwear pieces with lavish designer garments. He also boasts a rare kick collection of over 3,000 pairs.
Season 1 originally featured guest appearances from Offset’s wife Cardi B, A$AP Ferg, Dapper Dan, and Wiz Khalifa. Complex‘s Speedy Morman will return as host for the new season. Look for more star-studded guests to pop up come Season 2.
Justin Mensinger was the last designer standing to win the crown for Season 1. A true underdog story, the Chicago native defeated Lumières’ Kai Nguyen in the final round to clinch victory and become The Hype‘s inaugural champion.
On the music side, Offset has been previewing unreleased tunes for fans via his Instagram Story. In a recent interview with Complex, Quavo revealed the plan is for the Migos trio to deliver another batch of solo albums before reuniting for another group project.
