Less than a year after being named Variety Hitmaker of the Month, Taz Taylor unexpectedly gave up music altogether. Earlier this week, the hip-hop mogul announced his resignation by tweeted, “I’ll quit music and learn about plants, plants and life”. The 28-year-old native of Florida subsequently deleted all previous content from his social media channels and doubled his retirement when a follower asked him for more details.
Despite his youth, Taylor is likely destined for life already, or at least for a while. From obscure beginnings, he has grown from selling music beats online for $ 250 per pop to the CEO and founder of Internet Money, a record label and producer collective that spawned 34 Billboard Hot 100 chart singles. On the side, he produced music for everyone from Drake and Lil Baby to Trippie Redd and XXXTentacion. Taylor co-wrote and produced Lil Tecca’s “Ransom”, which entered the Top 5 on the Hot 100 in 2019, and released “Lemonade,” which peaked at $ 6 the following year.
So Taylor can well afford to drive his pink Mercedes-Benz and also pay nearly $ 3 million for a trendy “modern farmhouse” in Los Angeles. Presumably, he will share the property with longtime girlfriend Selena Steensland, a native of LA. And since the house is surrounded by old eucalyptus trees and large lawns, he has many opportunities at home to pursue his budding botany career.
