TM88 Net Worth – $2.5 million

What is TM88’s net worth?


TM88, also known as TrackMan 88, is a producer signed to Brick Squad Monopoly (a record label founded by rapper Waka Flocka Flame) and a member of the production group 808 Mafia.

The Origin Story

TM88 was born in Miami, Florida, on April 4th, 1987, as Bryan Lamar Simmons.

At some point in his childhood, he relocated to Eufaula, Alabama, with his family, where he lived for an unspecified period of time.

He ultimately relocated to Atlanta, Georgia – the place that he considers his hometown and the city where he established himself as a DJ and producer.

Little is known of TM88’s education or family life; Simmons himself has said remarkably little on the subject in public.

Professional Career

Who has TM88 produced for


TM88 got his start working on tracks with Brick Squad member Slim Dunkin. TM said about Dunkin:

Before [Slim] died, he saw things that I think nobody else saw. He saw this whole transition to us taking over the whole music game.”

In 2012, he joined the songwriting and production collective 808 Mafia, where he rapidly distinguished himself as a talented DJ and producer.

Simmons enjoyed a close relationship with fellow 808 Mafia member Southside.

Though best known due to his membership of 808 Mafia at the time, TM88 enjoyed significant success by solo-producing several tracks during 2012 and 2013. These included singles he produced for such renowned names as Future, Gucci, and Young Thug.

Collaboration with Wiz Khalifa

Where is TM88 from


In 2014, TM88 collaborated with the acclaimed rapper Wiz Khalifa.

Khalifa was so impressed with the producer that he introduced him to Juicy J, who co-owned the label Taylor Gang alongside Khalifa.

During his time with Taylor Gang, TM88 produced You And I 2016 featuring TY Dollar $ign.

He also received, alongside Khalifa and Juicy J, a co-credit on the album TGOD Mafia: Rude Awakening.

Collaboration with Lil Uzi Vert

TM88’s biggest hit came about as a result of his collaboration with the rapper Lil Uzi Vert.

Simmons produced Vert’s smash hit XO Tour Llif3, a song that reached #7 on the US Billboard Top 100 and, as of 2023, had over 1 billion streams on Spotify.

In 2022, it was reported that the song had sold over 11 million copies and had been certified platinum.

Simmons has recounted the curious process behind the creation of XO Tour Llif3’s distinctive sounds, which he created following his tertiary involvement in the 2017 Fort Lauderdale Airport shooting.

Though TM88 was not involved in the shooting itself, his flight was delayed as a result of the attack, and in the resulting confusion, he lost his laptop charger.

This ultimately resulted in his being unable to access his laptop, and he used an older computer and a Beats Pill Bluetooth speaker to create the music that would later be used on XO Tour Llif3.


TM88 is reportedly reticent when it comes to his personal life, and has never publicly spoken about whether or not he is married or has children. As a result, it is not known if he has children or if he has a partner.

In 2015, fellow 808 Mafia member Southside insulted TM88 in an interview, claiming that TM88 was no longer associated with the songwriting outfit.

Southside later retracted the statement, and TM88 himself has since said that the two are “like brothers.”


How old is TM88


It took 88 three years to craft the beat that eventually became Lil Uzi Vert’s now 2x Platinum-certified single “XO Tour Llif3,”

During an interview, 88 explained:

“Since the 20 beats, I probably gave [Uzi] 40 more or 60 more. I kind of do that with every artist that I have a relationship with, whether it’s Young Thug, Future, Wiz Khalifa, Gucci Mane, Travis Scott, and a few others.”

Later he added:

”You gotta load them up. Those kind of rappers will do 100 songs and they’ll be like, ‘Alright. I need more beats.’ I’m like, ‘I just sent you 200 beats.’”

When asked about how he feels about Lil Uzi Vert’s now 2x Platinum-certified single “XO Tour Llif3,” he said:

”I woke up on my birthday and it just broke the top 40. Within three months, it went platinum. Another month after that, it’s double platinum. That was crazy. That’s my first platinum and double platinum [record]. It’s crazy.”

88 lived in Eufaula, Alabama, and later moved to Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

Other famous rappers are – RJ, Astro, and Blind Fury.
