There is special meaning behind the title of Tay600’s debut mixtape “My Brother’s Keeper.” Tay is recording the project in honor of fallen 600 brother LA Capone.
Capone, born Leonard Anderson, was shot in the right thigh and lower back in September 2013 following a recording session at a South Shore studio. He was transported to Northwestern Memorial Hospital where he was later pronounced dead. He was 17.
“That came from what I felt like I was,” Tay told Hip Hops Revival. “I felt like I was my brother’s keeper. Folks got killed. Before he got killed, he heard my first track. When folks got killed I said I’ma take off with this sh-t. At the same time with me taking off I was gonna dedicate a lot of that sh-t to him. It’s like that’s my brother’s keeper. My whole mixtape dedicated to him. It will be only right to say ‘My Brother’s Keeper.’”
Tay said he and Capone did everything together.
“…F-ck b-tches, get money, shot guns, tote guns, gang bang on a daily basis,” he said. “Blood couldn’t have made us no closer. Everytime you see me, you see him. There ain’t even no other way to explain it. That was my brother. No separation, no sneak dissing, no animosity between me and him. Me and him was like two peas in a pod. That was my n-gga. Two peas in a pod.”
Tay described the music on his upcoming as authentic.
“This real, real sh-t,” he explained. “A lot of sh-t you gon hear on my songs, they gon be so specific and vivid they gon be like ‘He had to have lived this or this had to have been a real situation.’ Cause how I’m expaining sh-t, it’s gonna be down to a T.”
