Tm88 – Slayerr
TM88 hits the road supporting Machine Gun Kelly on the Hotel Diablo Tour. It just kicked off this week and hits major markets throughout the West Coast. Check out the remaining dates below.
TM88 closed out epic 2018 by joining forces with Southside for the banger “Hmmm” [feat. Lil Yachty & Valee]. Debuted as Zane Lowe’s World Record on Apple Music’s Beats 1, Billboard praised it as “one of the more eclectic sounds and song titles of the entire year.”
Additionally, he joined forces with 1800® Tequila to launch new music platform Keys to the City. As part of this innovative initiative, TM88 drew inspiration from three major culturally and sonically diverse major cities—Miami, Houston, and Philadelphia—and shared three beats publicly available for any artist to utilize in custom tracks. This places up-and-coming talent on the same stage as previous TM88 collaborators, ranging from Drake and 21 Savage to Wiz Khalifa and Travis Scott.

Right now, TM88 is putting the finishing touches on his full-length debut—coming very soon.
Cementing himself as a singular voice within Atlanta, TM88 maintains his position at the forefront of the pack. In fact, he does more than just influence the style of his hometown; he regularly pushes it to level up. He went from selling beats for $40 a pop at 12-years-old to co-founding 808 Mafia and eventually arriving as a solo musical force on the heels of a string of smashes. Beyond producing for everyone from Drake and 2 Chainz to Travis Scott, and Young Thug, he joined Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa on the critically acclaimed collaborative project TGOD Mafia: Rude Awakening.
Angling towards household name status, 2017 saw him deliver “XO TOUR LLIF3” for Lil Uzi Vert. It went on to achieve seven-times platinum certification from the RIAA as his profile dramatically rose with features from The Fader, XXL, and more. In 2018 alone, he crafted bangers for XXXTentacion, Wiz Khalifa, and more while prepping his forthcoming debut. He’s going to continue to lead in 2019 and beyond.
This time around, the powerhouse producer, DJ, and Taylor Gang affiliate architects an airy and ominous soundscape from icy 808s, glitchy synths, and slick percussion. Over this backdrop, elusive superstar Lil Uzi Vert makes a rare cameo appearance, delivering the verses with visceral emotion. This marks a reunion between TM88 and Lil Uzi Vert and continues the legacy they built with the septuple-platinum era-defining smash “XO TOUR Llif3” back in 2017.
