Alamo Records and Interscope Records have inked a joint venture deal with Internet Money, an independent producer collective that sells their beats online.

Florida native, self-taught producer, and Internet Money founder Taz Taylor began making beats as a teenager to pay for his mother’s medical expenses. He soon found that he had a knack for selling his beats to emerging rappers, and subsequently started Internet Money. The company’s business model provides producers with a non-traditional route of selling beats.

"We're very excited and fortunate to have Taz Taylor join the Alamo team with his Internet Money imprint!" Todd Moscowitz, founder of Alamo Records, tells Complex. "Taz is one of this generation's most promising producers and we're looking forward to creating history together."

Alamo's VP of A&R Zeke Hirschberg echoed a similar sentiment. "Taz is not only a world class producer but a great young talent finder who understands artist development. This is a really important addition to the Alamo family and we're honored to have him and his team with us."

Internet Money empowers its producers by allowing artists to buy beats straight from a digital inventory of wholly independent producers. In addition to a hands-on approach, where Internet Money directly deals with marketing, branding, and other business necessities for its roster, the company also supports its producers with educational courses on the business side of beatmaking.

Taylor has gained considerable acclaim on his own, as the producer for Tay-K and BlocBoy JB’s song “Hard." as well as working on several tracks on Lil Skies’ debut album Life of a Dark Rose. Taylor also co-produced Kodak Black’s “Dream Doll” and “My Klik,” and has worked with Gucci Mane, Big Sean, XXXTentacion, and Trippie Redd.
