“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
“Taz Taylor doesn’t consider himself an overnight success, but he’s definitely having a moment.” – Variety
“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.” – Complex
The Announcement + Video:
Los Angeles based artist/producer collective Internet Money have released their latest single “Thrusting” (ft. Future and Swae Lee) ahead of their debut album, B4 The Storm, out August 28 via 10K Projects/Internet Money Records. With a dancehall beat and reverbed piano, “Thrusting” shows off Swae Lee’s smooth choruses and Future’s characteristic flow.
“Thrusting” is the collective’s third single, and it arrives on the heels of last week’s track “Lemonade” featuring Gunna, NAV, & Don Toliver and their Gold certified debut single “Somebody” featuring A Boogie Wit da Hoodie and Lil Tecca. Since its release last Friday, “Lemonade” has been placed at #19 on Spotify’s US Top 50, #3 on Rap Caviar and Hot Rhythmic and has garnered nearly 20M streams. The Cole Bennett-directed music video for “Lemonade,” also released last Friday, has gained over 4M views on YouTube in its first week.
B4 The Storm was put together over a two-week period during quarantine at the Internet Money HQ in Los Angeles. The project features guest verses from Lil Keed, 24KGoldn, and Kevin Gates as well as artists that Internet Money has built with from the beginning, like Juice WRLD, Trippie Redd, and Lil Skies. B4 The Storm celebrates what Internet Money has accomplished in such a short time and showcases the tireless work ethic of a dynamic group with their eyes set on the future.
Starting as a type-beat factory and growing into a powerhouse, Taz Taylor and Internet Money have earned 3 Grammy noms, 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 B4 The Storm, Taz Taylor and Internet Money set out to confirm their status as the music industry’s most powerful hit-making collective.

Internet Money Background:
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.
