During an interview, Taylor said:
“I was just thinking, what if I did a whole Internet Money house where all the producers have their own rooms and we’re just working 24/7 with a big ass studio?”
The mansion is like a teenage WeWork in which Internet Money Records are hard at work filming a reality series, conducts week-long seminars for aspiring producers, and creates production tutorials for YouTube.
Nick is acquainted with Lil Skies, an American rapper who is best known for singles such as Nowadays and Red Roses as well as for his debut mixtape, Life of a Dark Rose.
Skies was introduced to music by his father who was also a rapper. Lil recorded his 1st song when he was four-years-old at Quatro Studios in Hagerstown.

Lil landed his big break when Cole Bennett released and directed his music video for “Red Roses.”
