Born Tavares Taylor on January 6, 1993, in Chicago, Illinois, Reese is currently 26-years-old. The rapper rose to fame in 2012 from his feature on Chief Keef’s wildly popular song, “I Don’t Like.”
Fans began listening to his music, including well-known producer No. I.D. and he helped sign the Chicago rapper to Def Jam. In November 2012, he appeared on rapper Rick Ross’ mixtape The Black Bar Mitzvah with his remix of “Us,” including Drake, and Juelz Santana featured him on “Bodies.”
In September 2013, Reese dropped his second solo mixtape, which featured artists Lil Durk, Chief Keef, Waka Flocka Flame, Wale, and the late Fredo Santana.
