The Migos know a thing or two about fashion and swag and group member Offset will be bringing his drip to the upcoming HBO Max show “The Hype.”

The HBO Max show will feature 10 professionals competing in a series of challenges that cover the intricacies of designing, the business of fashion and the savvy to identify the latest trends.

Cardi B’s husband will produce and be one of the co-signers – aka judges – alongside Beth Birkett, creative director and founder of Bephies Beauty Supply, and Marni Senofonte, a costume designer who has worked with the likes of Beyoncé and Lauryn Hill. Speedy Morman of Complex Media will host the eight-part series.

“I feel like the show ‘Hype’ was created with creatives like myself in mind,” explained Offset to Deadline. “I’m happy to not only be a co-signer for the show but a producer. We are giving opportunities to the culture.”

Roc Nation co-founders Jay Brown and Tyran “Ty Ty Smith” are among the executive producers of the upcoming streaming series as well.

“We see the ubiquitous influence of streetwear culture all around us — from high fashion and popular culture, to a form of individual self-expression and identity. We are excited to embark on this journey to find the next great streetwear designer with our partners at Scout, Jay Brown and Ty Ty Smith,” added Sarah Aubrey, head of original content at HBO Max, in the statement to Deadline.
