One of the strangest rises to fame of the year has to be that of Lil Tay. Embracing (or appropriating) hip-hop culture in her videos, nine-year-old Tay has made a name for herself by using inappropriate profanity and flexing in whips that “cost more than your momma’s rent.” Although she has been exposed as a fraud on several occasions as of late, the child star does not plan on slowing down her behavior, perhaps even ramping things up as she gains more exposure. With videos breaking out of the nine-year-old using racial slurs, her rise to fame may soon come to an abrupt end but one of the “brains” behind her success is detailing how Tay plans to stay in the game for a long time.
We have already seen Lil Tay hanging out with Rich The Kid and Chief Keef on social media and according to The Blast, Tay’s strategist and consultant Alex Loyalty says that she’s been contacted by a handful of other personalities. Tekashi 6ix9ine, Blac Youngsta, and YouTube personality Jake Paul have all reportedly reached out to Lil Tay for future collaborations. Loyalty notes that the young Instagram personality is currently “continuing to create motivating and entertaining content,” ensuring that she continues flexing on everybody with her (fake) money and cars.
The consultant also stated that things are much more controlled behind-the-scenes than Tay’s audience is being led on to believe as decisions are carefully made to craft her IG attitude. Loyalty believes that “the youngest flexer of the century” has reached such a level of notoriety because she operates her content on her own platform, neglecting the regular “child star” path of choosing television or film. Do you think Lil Tay will continue to rise or has she reached her peak?
