One of the fastest-growing hip-hop labels in the country has signed producer Taz Taylor and his Internet Money creative collective to a joint venture label deal.
The agreement with 10K Projects begins Friday, with the release of "Somebody," a new track by Internet Money that features Lil Tecca and A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie. Fans can find the song streaming on all platforms and watch the track's music video up top.
The move is big for Taylor, whose career kicked off by selling beats to rappers from his home over the Internet. Since then, the 26-year-old has worked with artists like Big Sean, Chris Brown, Drake, Desiigner, Juice WRLD, Gucci Mane, Trippie Redd, and more. He recently worked on “Ransom” with Lil Tecca, a single that landed top five on the Billboard Hot 100.
10K Project Founder and CEO Elliot Grainge decided to sign Taylor, sensing his talent early on. "Taz Taylor is a proven hitmaker who we believe will unearth and unlock true talent across multiple genres," Grainge said in a statement. "Taz has the rare ability to not only create great music in the studio but mentor up-and-coming artists and producers and build hugely successful teams outside of it. We're thrilled to be working with Taz and his entire team."
Taylor’s Internet Money collective has been a rousing success so far. The group boasts some 300,000 subscribers on YouTube and millions of hits online. He’s invited prominent producers into the fold, such as KC Supreme, who has worked with Megan Thee Stallion, Nick Mira, who has worked with Post Malone and Tierra Whack, and JRHITMAKER, who has worked with and 6ix9ine.
"I've always had aspirations beyond being in the studio," Taylor said, according to a press release. "We may come from different backgrounds, but Elliot and I are basically the same age, we have the same hunger for success and the same belief in taking big bets on artists we believe in. I can't wait for people to hear what's next."
