GRAMMY Award-nominated powerhouse producer, artist, DJ, and Taylor Gang affiliate TM88 drops “Tokyo Nights (feat. MadeinTYO).” Listen HERE. The track comes in hot following TM88 producing “P2” off of Lil Uzi Vert’s Billboard Top 200 number 1 album, Eternal Atake in addition to following up from TM88 & Smokepurpp’s joint single “RR.”
“Tokyo Nights (feat. MadeinTYO)” has a late-night cruising vibe to it. The track features fellow Atlanta native, MadeinTYO, known for his hit “Uber Everywhere,” rapping about the ladies and foreign cars encountered in a night out in Tokyo over TM88’s tranquil yet vigorous beats.
“I really wanted to bring the feel of a real Tokyo night to life racing through the neon light streets with a couple of beautiful women and just living the night of my life with my bro MadeinTYO,” says TM88.
The track came together organically at TM88’s home studio in LA when he was cooking up beats with all of his homeboys around -Southside, Travis Scott, Trinidad James, Sheck Wes, and Wheezy. TM88 recalls MadeinTYO pulled up and was ready to work after the duo already made 8 songs together that week. The rest was history.
TM88 is a staple in the Atlanta trap scene and hip-hop. As an artist he holds over 70 million streams and has collaborated with Lil Uzi Vert, Young Thug, Future, Juicy J, Gunna, Moneybagg Yo, Wiz Khalifa, Project Pat, Lil Yachty, Valee and more. Under his belt, TM88 has production credits building an impressive discography of both superstars and rising rappers from Drake “Company”, to 21 Savage “Drip”, to Travis Scott “Nothing but Net” to the late XXXTENTACION “going down!”. Not to mention TM88’s somber infused beats are a key component to Lil Uzi Vert’s global smash-hit “XO Tour Llif3.” The record is currently seven-times platinum certified from the RIAA.
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.
