Slime x Sizzle x 88 is on the way.
For a while, fans (im)patiently awaited the rumored collaborative Jeffery88 tape that was slated to arrive as an effort from Young Thug and producer TM88. Most recently, the latter stepped onto social media to actually dead the notion when prompted by a fan, but not without adding assurance that a collaboration of some sort would still be arriving and that it would consist of the two along with 88’s fellow 808 Mafia member Southside.
“There’s no Jeffery 88 but there a Slime x Sizzle x 88 project that’s completed,” he penned.
Of course, the last full-length effort we got from Thugger was his joint Super Slimey tape with fellow ATLien Future. The effort was rather successful, peaking at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 200 chart. On it, both Southside and TM88 garnered some producing credits, with Southside producing 3 cuts while TM88 handled Super Slimey‘s closing “Group Home” cut.
Where TM88 is concerned, it’s been a fruitful year as he nabbed a credit for the juggernaut that is Lil Uzi Vert‘s “XO TOUR Llif3.” Prior to the year’s inception, he was riding the wave that came along with his involvement in some of 2016’s top efforts including Travis Scott’s Birds In The Trap Sing Brian McKnight, and Thug’s JEFFERY.
As for Young Sizzle, you’ve likely heard the Southside drop on many of the year’s most publicized releases, including Quality Control’sControl the Streets compilation, Gucci Mane‘s El Gato, and Quavo and Travis’ Huncho Jack.
