Tavares Lamont Taylor was born on January 6th, 1993, in Chicago, Illinois, where he was raised in the city’s south side. As a kid, he found himself involved in several street troubles.
Reese began rapping at the age of 10 years old. Around the same time, he also began to get into some relatively minor trouble with the law while associating himself with the Chicago crew.
After dropping out of high school, Reese decided to pursue a career in rap music. Thanks to his street connections, Reese got in touch with Chief Keef. The rapper was revolutionizing the Chicago hip-hop scene by pioneering drill music.
In 2012, Lil Reese became a part of the hit single “I Don’t Like”. That track climbed its way to the top 20 of Billboard’s Hot R&B and Hip Hop Charts. Following the success, Lil Reese became the newest member of Def Jam’s Roster at only 19 years old.
Two days later, he released his first professional mixtape titled “Don’t Like”. By the end of 2012, Reese was dropping singles like “Us” and “Traffic”. Neither of which created the same level of impact as his breakthrough track did only months earlier.
Lil Reese continued to work on his sound by teaming up with fellow Chicago rappers Lil Druk and Fredo Santana. In 2013, he released his “Supa Savage” mixtape. At this point, he left Def Jam behind and signed on to Fredo Santana in Chief Keef’s label “Glory Boyz”.
Since then, Reese has released further mixtapes like “Supa Savage 2” in 2015 and “Get Back Gang” in 2018. He also dropped EPs with titles like “Supa Vultures” alongside Lil Durk.
Then in 2021, Reese teamed up with Young Dolph and Chief Keef to release his mixtape titled “Supa Savage 3”. Later, he also collaborated with the likes of Waka Flocka Flame, Wale, Plies, Juelz Santana, Funkmaster Flex, and more.
In 2012, Reese found himself in the middle of a beef that turned deadly involving a rival known as “Lil Jojo”. It was Jojo who first brought attention to this beef with his track “BDK (3HUNNAK)” which was a decoration of war on the member of the gang.
Shortly thereafter, Jojo was riding on a friend’s bike when a car pulled up alongside him and as a result, Jojo passed away. Reese quickly took Twitter to mock Jojo’s death. He later claimed that his Twitter account had been hacked but whispers of his involvement in Jojo’s murder have persisted ever since.
In 2010, Lil Reese pleaded guilty to burglary charges, earning himself a two-year probation sentence. This probation would be violated shortly before it expired when Reese was arrested with more charges in Feb 2012.
In the following year, he was sent to jail once again but further troubles were still to come. In November 2019, Lil Reese was shot when he took a bullet to the neck. He was brought to South Suburban Hospital where he was listed in critical condition. Four days later, he was released from the hospital.
Despite all the difficulties, Lil Reese is busy right now having a baby girl in early 2019. His daughter’s name is Kairi and she also has an Instagram page. He also lost his grandmother that same year.
