Brytavious Lakeith Chambers (born September 20, 1996), known professionally as Tay Keith, is an American record producer and songwriter.[1] He is best known for co-producing Travis Scott's "Sicko Mode", peaking at number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, BlocBoy JB's "Look Alive", peaking at number 5 on the Hot 100, and Drake's "Nonstop", peaking at number 2.[2][3] Most of his production works are beginning with his producer tag, "Tay Keith, f--- these n---as up!"

On December 15, 2018, Tay Keith earned his Bachelor's Degree from Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.[4]

He has been nominated for Best Rap Song for his work on "Sicko Mode" at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards.

Early life[edit]

Brytavious Lakeith Chambers was born on September 20, 1996 in South Memphis, Tennessee, where he was also raised. He grew up with his mom and dad knowing that music was going to be his strong point. Keith is the youngest family member out of his two brothers and two sisters.[citation needed]

When he was around fourteen, he began to make music and publish it to YouTube and DatPiff. He also had a piano which he used to make songs and remake popular songs. One of the songs he managed to remake was Lil Wayne's "Lollipop".[5]

Keith met fellow American rapper BlocBoy JB when he was fourteen, after he moved to Raleigh in North Memphis. The two began making music together shortly afterward.[4]

Career[edit]

In 2015, Keith began working with rapper Blac Youngsta on his mixtape, Fuck Everybody, for which he produced the single "Lil Bitch".

Keith gained mainstream success in 2018 through producing BlocBoy JB's "Rover" (later remixed to "Rover 2.0" featuring 21 Savage), "Shoot" and "Look Alive" featuring Drake, Drake's "Nonstop", Travis Scott's "Sicko Mode", Eminem's "Not Alike" featuring Royce da 5'9's, and Lil Baby and Gunna's "Never Recover" featuring Drake.

On April 17, 2019, Beyoncé released her album Homecoming: The Live Album, which is the live recording from her Coachella performance. It also included a bonus track "Before I Let Go", produced by Keith.

On March 5, 2020, Aitch released "Rain", a single featuring AJ Tracey; the song was produced by Keith.

Personal life[edit]

In December 2018, Keith graduated from Middle Tennessee State University, receiving a degree in Media Management. [6]

In January 2019, Keith was involved in a car crash. He was unscathed after the incident.[7]
