Tay Keith has been making music since he was 14 years old, marketing himself and networking on MySpace. However, it wasn’t until 2018—when Keith produced a record that would become known as “Look Alive” by BlocBoy JB and Drake—that the producer had hip-hop fans around the globe reciting his famous producer tag: “Tay Keith, f**k these n*ggas up!”
In 2021, it’s impossible to turn on the radio without hearing a beat made by the multi-Platinum producer. Whether it’s a hip-hop station playing the latest Moneybagg Yo and Blac Youngsta or a pop station playing Miley Cyrus, Tay Keith’s influence on this generation’s music is undeniable.
