Release and promotion[edit]

On March 21, 2016, record producer TM88 revealed that he along with rappers Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa, were releasing a collaboration album. He also posted a picture of the album's track list on Instagram. Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa were listed at the top of the picture, and beneath their names was the title that said, "Prod. by TM88", which suggested that TM88 had done the production on all of the songs.[2] On May 7, 2016, Wiz hinted at the album title in a tweet and said that the project would be released the following week.[3]

On May 13, a pre-order for the album was made available on iTunes which revealed an updated track list.[4] Initially a collaboration with One Direction's Liam Payne was slated to be included on the album, however, it was removed when it was done on an unfinished demo of the song that was leaked online in April 2016. On May 13, their first official single from the album, titled "All Night" was released on iTunes.[5][6]
