Audio: Internet Money – “Options” ft. 24kGoldn
Taz Taylor and the Dominant Artist-Producer Collective Connect With Another Superstar for a Guitar-Driven Pop Smash
“[Internet Money] grew into a music industry powerhouse that helped break stars like Juice WRLD and Lil Tecca, racking up dozens of Billboard hits and platinum plaques in the process.” – Complex
“The group of beatmakers is dominating music-streaming services” – Billboard
“It seems only inevitable that these guys are just going to continue to take the world by storm, one hit at a time.” – MTV
“Even if you aren’t familiar with L.A. production collective Internet Money, you’ve heard their beats. The group’s sounds have powered some of hip-hop’s biggest records in the past couple years, from Rich the Kid’s “Plug Walk” and Juice WRLD’s “Lucid Dreams” to Drake’s “Blue Tint.” The group is helmed by Taz Taylor, a Florida native who — true to his collective’s name — has accumulated a fortune primarily through the internet.” – The FADER
Known for mixing hummable melodies with spacious atmosphere and speaker-knocking percussion, Taz Taylor and Internet Money have shaped the sound of the charts. Recruiting 24kGoldn for a guitar-driven, genre-bending new single, Internet Money shares “Options.” Produced by Pharaoh Vice, mjNichols, Nash Beats, Nick Mira, E-Trou, John Luther, Ryder Johnson & Taz Taylor, “Options” layers crunchy pop-punk guitars and crisp handclaps above thumping 808s and rattling hi-hats, striking a balance of unexpectedly complementary California sounds. Goldn channels his inner Tom DeLonge, emoting over the track about a recent relationship that ended in betrayal and distrust: “If you had options, then why’d you even stick around long enough for me to find out?”

“Options” is the second high profile collaboration for Internet Money in a matter of weeks, following the high-octane “Flossin’,“ a team-up with YoungBoy Never Broke Again. Debuting at #72 on the Billboard Hot 100, the glistening track has racked up over 7.5 million streams on Spotify alone.
“Options” and “Flossin'” are early salvos for Internet Money as they prepare for a 2022 even big enough to surpass their monstrously successful 2021. Just last year, Internet Money earned over 40 RIAA plaques on songs they produced, including hits by Juice Wrld, Polo G, Lil Tecca, and The Kid Laroi. In addition to the new wall full of plaques, IM producers Nick Mira and DT earned a GRAMMY nomination for their work on Lil Nas X’s MONTERO. Internet Money found success as lead artists with the GOLD certified “His & Hers,” a sparkling collab with Don Toliver, Gunna, and Lil Uzi Vert, which debuted at #67 on the Billboard Hot 100, racked up over 26 million views on the Cole Bennett-directed video, earned a spot as one of the Top Global Tracks on TikTok, and received recognition from Complex, who named it the 26th best song of 2021. “His & Hers” was a worthy follow-up to “Lemonade” ft. Gunna, Don Toliver & NAV, the triple-Platinum, Billboard Top 10 2020 hit from B4 The Storm, Internet Money’s star-studded first full-length.
After two years cooking up hits and armed with a brand new studio in Santa Monica, CA, Internet Money is ready to show the world how much they’ve grown. With a guest list that mixes the rap game’s biggest stars with its most notable rising names and über-talented Internet Money Records signees, the next Internet Money album looks to be the biggest step yet toward achieving Taz Taylor’s industry-conquering ambitions. Stay tuned for much more.

Internet Money Background:
Starting as a type-beat factory and growing into a global powerhouse, Taz Taylor and Internet Money have earned 3 Grammy nominations, 58 platinum plaques, 33 gold, and 14 Billboard #1 hits since 2018. The collective is behind some of the biggest rap and R&B hits of the past few years, including Juice WRLD’s “Lucid Dreams” (1.3 billion Spotify streams), Trevor Daniel’s “Falling” (#1 Billboard Mainstream Pop, 37 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 with #17 peak), Lil Tecca’s “Ransom” (700 million Spotify streams, #4 Hot 100), and XXXTentacion’s “Fuck Love” ft. Trippie Redd (the most-played song in SoundCloud history). With 2020’s B4 The Storm album, and its double-platinum single “Lemonade” ft. Gunna, Don Toliver & NAV, Taz Taylor and Internet Money confirmed their status as the music industry’s most powerful hitmaking collective.
Internet Money was born out of necessity, a hybrid company that has filled in the gaps between the rap industry, the producer community, and the online marketplace. Disillusioned with the industry, and the way he saw rap producers being taken advantage of, Taz Taylor formed the collective in 2016 as a way to share the knowledge he’d gained from years spent selling his “type beats” online and navigating the internet’s ever-growing impact on the production landscape.
Four years in, Internet Money has expanded as a collective, including Grammy-nominated producers like Nick Mira and JR Hitmaker, and produced for Drake, Trippie Redd, Juice WRLD, and many more. “When you’re in Internet Money, you get the same opportunities that I do, you’re gonna be working with the same artists that I’m working with, and getting credits with them,” Taylor says. “Instead of working with a bunch of people we don’t know, we just have our own network that’s one big family.” Following their success breaking major artists like Trevor Daniel, and co-producing his multi-platinum hit “Falling,” Taylor and Internet Money partnered with Elliot Grange’s 10K Projects in 2019 to launch their own label.
Taz Taylor Background:
Taz Taylor has never cared about fame or clout. To hear the multi-platinum producer and Internet Money founder tell it, everything he’s done — from turning his online production hustle selling “type beats” into a $500,000 per year business to forming his own label — has been born out of necessity and guided by intuition. “I’ve been so tunnel vision during the last five years to make sure I got to this point,” he says. “It was just like, Let’s keep building.”
Though the 27-year-old has only been in the industry for a few years, his accomplishments in that time have come at a staggering pace, notching, by his estimation, over 500 placements and around 200 gold and platinum plaques between himself and the other producers on his Internet Money team. As their leader, Taylor has quickly become a new sort of rap mogul, one who’s built his steadily growing empire from a deep knowledge of the ways music moves online, and he’s done it all from the humblest of beginnings.
