In addition to a teaser video posted earlier this month, the series’ hosts are also hyping up the show on their own social media sites.
On Instagram, Chance the Rapper urged his followers to tag those who might be a good fit for the competition, noting that he and T.I and Cardi B are looking for artists that are “unsigned, dedicated, and ready.”
Cardi B also shared her excitement with her 50.5 million Instagram followers. “I’m looking for somebody that when I’m going to my car I’m gonna remember their music, I’m gonna remember their face, I’m gonna remember their personality,” the rapper said in a video. “We wanna find you, we wanna discover you,” she continued, noting that she was looking for “that diamond in the rough.”
Meanwhile, T.I described the show as aiming to “explore all of the hoods, all the studios, all the nightclubs … even the barbershops if necessary” to find “the next unreleased, underground hip-hop superstar.”
After premiering on Oct. 9, Netflix will drop the next batch of episodes on Oct. 16, and the final episodes on Oct. 23.
