Most recently, he lost an uncle to gun violence and made Forbes' "30 Under 30" list. He's currently working on his new album Blacc Hollywood (which will feature Mannie Fresh, The Weeknd, Adele and Miley Cyrus), as well as developing his Taylor Gang Records imprint, which is home to Berner, Chevy Woods, Juicy J, Project Pat, Tuki Carter, Ty Dolla $ign and more.
