His song "LA Girls" featuring Joel Madden of Good Charlotte was featured on the MTV show, The Hills.[2] In addition to Taylor, the music video for "LA Girls" also stars UFC champion Quinton Jackson, Mila Kunis, and Carmen Electra.[3]

A later single of Taylor's called "Girls Gotta Girlfriend" featured Snoop Dogg, and Bobby Valentino was inspired by the openness about female bisexuality in Hollywood.[4] Taylor participated in the NOH8 Campaign which promotes marriage, gender, and human equality.[5]

In May 2013 Taylor teamed up with producer Ben Rico and formed the production /writing duo called "Feelabeat." They produced and wrote a single for Carmen Electra, titled "Bigger Dick".[6]

United for Neda[edit]

Taylor wrote and produced "United for Neda". Which is a protest song recorded in English and Persian versions by many famous Iranian expatriates. It was inspired by the plight of Neda Agha-Soltan, a 26-year-old Iranian woman who was fatally shot on the streets of Tehran on 20 June 2010 by the Basij. Her death was recorded on cell phone video and received international attention when it hit the Internet.[9]
