Music career[edit]

Taylor gained recognition when Chief Keef's hit "I Don't Like" featuring Lil Reese garnered widespread international attention. He then began to receive popularity through his music videos, including "Us" and "Beef". He then caught the eye of producer No I.D., who had produced albums or tracks for artists like Common, Kanye West and others, which led to Taylor signing with hip hop label Def Jam.[2]


In November 2012 he released a remix from his song "Us" with Rick Ross and Drake which later appeared on Rick Ross' mixtape The Black Bar Mitzvah.[3] Taylor also created many songs with upandcoming music producers, such as Young Chop. He is also featured on Juelz Santana's song "Bodies". In January 2013 Taylor released a remix to his song "Traffic" featuring Young Jeezy and Twista. On September 2, 2013, Lil Reese released his second solo mixtape Supa Savage, featuring guest appearances from Chief Keef, Lil Durk, Fredo Santana, Wale and Waka Flocka Flame.[4]


Legal issues[edit]

In May 2010, Reese pleaded guilty to burglary charges and was given two years of probation.[5]


On October 24, 2012, a video allegedly showing Reese assaulting a woman was posted to the internet.[6] On April 28, 2013, Reese was arrested by Chicago Police on a warrant issued two days earlier, based on criminal trespass to a residence with persons present, battery, and mob action from the video incident from February 2012.[5][7]


On June 23, 2013, Reese was arrested in Chicago and charged with motor vehicle theft after an incident on April 13, 2013, where he was not able to provide proof of ownership for a BMW 750Li.[8] However, the charge was later dropped. On July 13, 2013, Reese was arrested again in Chicago for marijuana possession, a violation of his probation.[9]
