Derek Wise and 88 Camino finally released their debut project as 88GLAM. The chatter surrounding the project has been on high all day and it's the first project Derek Wise and 88 Camino delivered under the Weeknd's XO record label. While the whole project was fire, one track stood out in particular. Not only for its catchy hook and vibrant production but because it's the only track on the project with a feature. 88GLAM connect with their XO brethren, Nav, for the stand-out "Bali."
88GLAM bring the XO Camp together for the only collaboration on the track, "Bali." It's a flossy single that has both Derek Wise and 88 Camino flexing fame and riches. It also serves as a way of addressing the transition between the local clout they've received over the years while still striving to take their talents and dreams to other heights. Derek Wise takes over on the first verse, delivering a smooth verse in his baritone voice. Camino steers the wheel on the track though, handling the hook as well as delivering an exceptional verse. 88 Camino's melodic voice carries the track's tone. Nav and 88GLAM mesh perfectly on the track from their flow, to lyrics and overall delivery. It's a stand-out track on their project and a highlight of the young talent on the XO team.
Along with the release of the project, they also delivered the video for the single as well. The video was directed by XO's Cash, who also gets' his Diddy on during the video. It's a straight forward video that predominantly consists of the rappers flexing from the hotel lobby to the room and then inside of the club.
88GLAM are about to make some serious waves. As they cap off the year with a solid project, they're definitely about to make a mark in 2018. Keep your eyes peeled.
In New York, I milly rock
My shooter tote a .30, he can't hide it in his sock
I am not a rapper, all these other rappers soft
They hope that I fall off
But bitch I'm at the top
