Lil Tay gained fame in 2018 at the age of 9 for sharing attention-grabbing videos on Instagram, where she rapped and used strong language to show off a luxurious lifestyle. She was known as the "youngest flexer of the century." She faced criticism for appropriating hip-hop culture and using inappropriate language.

In 2019, it was reported that Tay's older brother Jason played a significant role in managing her social media presence. Together with their mother Angela Tian, they caused confusion in the industry by discussing deals without signing contracts.
