Prior to the formation of 88Glam and following the disband of their former group coined "Get Home Safe Crew" with Jazz Cartier, both Derek Wise and 88 Camino, formerly known as Drew Howard, had been releasing music separately. Wise and 88 Camino remained in touch and collaborated frequently and previously worked together on the tracks "Anuva Wun" as a single by 88 Camino[3] and "I Can Tell" from Wise's 2017 debut album Inglorious. Wise and Camino began teasing their collaborative project during the summer of 2017.[4]

The duo introduced the name "88Glam" on November 1, 2017, premiering their first music video "12" via Billboard which featured a cameo from The Weeknd.[5] This was followed by the release of another music video for "Bali" featuring Nav and the debut of their self-titled mixtape 88Glam on November 7, 2017.[6]

On April 20, 2018, four new tracks were added to 88Glam and re-released as 88Glam Reloaded by XO Records and Republic Records. Introducing a new remix to the duos platinum certified record Bali with Nav featuring 2 Chainz.
