TM88 – War Stories

Today TM88 continues to heat up the summer dropping his latest song/video “War Stories (feat. Calboy, Slatt Zy)”. Watch it here via Capitol Records/Taylor Gang. The emotionally charged battle-ready ballad pays homage to “fallen soldiers.” TM88 crafts a smooth melancholy beat serving as the melodic backdrop for recent 2020 XXL Freshman Calboy and 18-year-old rising Chattanooga rapper/singer Slatt Zy to go off as they reminisce about their trials and tribulations. The video utilizes scenes from the burning streets of Atlanta, to the bustling highways, and flashing TV screens to paint the picture of “war” felt by all three artists.

“Everyone including myself has lost a lot of good people throughout the years and “War Stories” pays tribute to all of the fallen soldiers we’ve lost to the streets and beyond.” -TM88

Hitmaker TM88 is on a 2020 hot streak. The track follows his singles “Blue Jean Bandit (With Southside, Feat. Young Thug, Future, Moneybagg Yo),” “Tokyo Nights (feat. MadeinTYO),” and his collaboration with Smokepurpp RR.” TM88’s impact in hip-hop this year aside from his own records comes from being the mastermind producer for Lil Uzi Vert’s “P2,” from the Billboard 200 number 1 album, Eternal Atake. In an interview with Rolling Stone,TM88 said the beats were roughly created in only 45 minutes while he worked with Lil Uzi Vert over FaceTime.
