Video: 88GLAM – “Big Tymers”
The XO-Affiliated Duo (88 Camino & Derek Wise) Channel Birdman and Manny Fresh in the Stylish, PAPER-Premiered New Clip
Making head-nodding music for luxurious late nights, Toronto duo 88GLAM (88 Camino & Derek Wise) captures the spirit of their city’s club scene. A wistful, boastful, and melodic reflection on the two emcees’ come-ups, 88GLAM shares “Big Tymers,” their latest music video. The video follows the duo and a group of Toronto youngsters, as they play soccer, hang out, and enjoy life in the projects. Premiered by PAPER, “Big Tymers” is an twinkling, organ-filled ode to Manny Fresh and Birdman, two of the group’s idols, and a highlight from 88GLAM, their glowed-up debut project. “Big Tymers” is the third music video to be released from the project, following noir-ish “12,” which has over 655k YouTube views and features a cameo from The Weeknd, and “Bali,” a hazy, HYPEBEAST-premiered clip with a guest verse from NAV.
Splitting the difference between Rap and R&B, the XO-affiliated 88GLAM is the product of pure collaboration between two Toronto artists. Finding a common aesthetic and love for late-night jams, Derek Wise and 88 Camino grew to appreciate each other’s style in the city’s party scene. Released earlier this month, 88GLAM is a cohesive and cinematic project, packed with subdued, yet speaker-knocking instrumentals. With production from the likes of Murda Beatz, WondaGirl, AlexOnWeed, and VillaBeatz, 88GLAM is the ideal soundtrack for a drug-addled, dimly lit party and an accomplished addition to the XO expanded universe.

Derek Wise Background:
Derek Bissue (born December 11th, 1992) better known by his stage name Derek Wise, is a Canadian rapper born in the Scarborough region of Toronto, Canada. Wise began rapping at the age of 10 years old. Listening to an array of musical creatives spanning several genres helped him develop a sound that is natural in every setting; along with his command of rhythm and cadence, this is his greatest gift. Derek’s unstable upbringing and his mother playing the role of both parents taught Derek how to be independent and the ability to rise above any circumstance, which presently is a common theme in much of Derek’s music. His unique perspective is a result of his interests in classic mob movies and taste for culture.
Wise has fought through adversity and maintained a unique wave of monstrous releases in the past few months including his new 2017 debut project, INGLORIOUS available now at all digital retailers. His latest single and video, “Disconnected” received overwhelming acclaim from fans and press as it exemplified Derek’s distinct melodies. The video for “Disconnected” was a nominee for iHeartRadio’s MUCH MUSIC VIDEO AWARD for Best Hip Hop Video. The long-awaited INGLORIOUS project provides a vivid, cinematic look into the mind of Derek Wise but, its only the beginning.
