B4 The Storm
Internet Money’s best-known members are its founders, producers Taz Taylor and Nick Mira. With production credits for Juice WRLD’s “Lucid Dreams” and “All Girls Are the Same,” along with Lil Tecca’s “Ransom” and “Did It Again,” Taylor and Mira have legitimate claims to the breaking of both stars. With their Internet Money compilation B4 the Storm, however, the producers are looking to position their own collective—some of whom have already collaborated with some of rap’s biggest names—as the sound of tomorrow.
On B4 the Storm, Internet Money subscribes to a DJ Khaled-like approach, facilitating unprecedented, if also perfect-sense, groupings like Trippie Redd, Lil Keed, and Young Nudy (“Really Redd”); Lil Mosey, iann dior, and Lil Skies (“Lost Me”); and Lil Tecca and A Boogie wit da Hoodie (“Somebody”). Production-wise the beats skew jovial and spacious, with an ever-present 808 rumble, a sound that permeates Apple Music’s It’s Lit! playlist. Wiz Khalifa, Future, and Swae Lee are some of the bigger names to pop up on the album, but if there’s anything to take from the number of appearances of newer artists like Cochise, 24kGoldn, and TyFontaine, it’s that the label’s money is on the youth.
