The group released its debut self-titled instrumental mixtape in 2012, hosted by Trap-A-Holics.

A sequel called 808 Mafia II was announced for release on December 21, 2012, but was later delayed multiple times. In March 2013, a trailer for the tape was released to the team's YouTube channel. 808 Mafia II was released on April 24, 2013, via LiveMixtapes. It was hosted by Trap-A-Holics, DJ Scream and DJ Drama, and features production by Southside, TM88, Purps, Tarentino, Fuse, Chris Fresh, OG Taxx and Be Bop.
