Audio: Internet Money – “2k In Tha Soda” ft. Lucki
The Chicago Rapper Joins the Dominant Artist-Producer Collective in the Latest Highlight Release from Internet Money’s Upcoming We All We Got EP, Coming August 19th via Internet Money Records/10K Projects
“[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
With a sound that has cemented itself as a mainstay in the streets and on the charts, Taz Taylor and Internet Money are known for stacking plaques. Joining forces with an underground hero with a triumphantly woozy new single, Internet Money shares “2k In Tha Soda,” a collaboration with Lucki. A fixture on the Chicago scene for nearly a decade, Lucki made his name on insular anthems for faded late nights, and on “2k In Tha Soda,” IM producers Radiate, Synthetic, Perdu, ThxTrey. and Taz Taylor get on his unique wavelength. The song combines a recurring horn fanfare with seasick percussion, providing an ideal backdrop for Lucki to croak his free associative rhymes: “Said I was quitting, but I highly doubt it/I got 100’s, don’t need my flowers.” Premiered on The Zane Lowe Show on Apple Music, “2k In Tha Soda” is the latest offering from We All We Got, Internet Money’s upcoming EP.
Spanning six tracks, the EP shines a spotlight on some of the most exciting rising rappers in the game, including Yeat, Lucki, Ken Carson, and Destroy Lonely, alongside brand new releases with frequent Internet Money collaborators Lil Tecca and Lil Yachty. We All We Got is home to “No Handoutz,” the Yeat-featuring banger that dropped earlier this year, and “She Want Some More,” a spritely and romantic single featuring Ken Carson and Lil Tecca. With production from Taz Taylor, Nick Mira, and Internet Money producers like Cxdy, Census, Rio Leyva, Hologram, and more, We All We Got EP arrives on August 19th via Internet Money Records/10K Projects.
We All We Got EP and “2k In Tha Soda” continue Internet Money’s mission to grow their empire and plant their flag on rap’s future. The new singles, along with the rise of IM-affiliated artists like Dro Kenji, Rotken, and Rich Amiri, continue the momentum that the pioneering artist-producer collective built over half a decade of dominance. Earlier this year, Internet Money scored a Hot 100 hit with “Flossin'” ft. YoungBoy Never Broke Again, and connected with 24kGoldn for the genre-bending “Options.” The collective earned more than 40 RIAA plaques on songs they produced in 2021, including hits by Juice Wrld, Polo G, Lil Tecca, and The Kid Laroi, and 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. Internet Money still racks up millions of streams per week on “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.
Armed with a brand new studio in Santa Monica, CA and more beats than one can count, Internet Money is ready to show the world how much they’ve grown. Stay tuned for much more music from Internet Money as they continue to advance Taz Taylor’s industry-conquering ambitions.

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 Taylor 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.
