From Basketball player to Rapping
Lil Tecca was born on the 26th of August, 2002, in the Queens area of New York City. Both of his parents are Jamaican Migrants and hence, he is of Jamaican Ancestry. Later he and his family moved to the Lawrence area of Long Island in the New York state.
He went to Lawrence High School in Cedarhurst on Long Island. Surprisingly, at first, Lil Tecca wanted to be a professional basketball player and had interest only in NBA but eventually, his interest deviated to music. Luckily, his parents let him pursue his interest in music.
He started rapping over his mic on Xbox game Call of Duty. When asked about how he came up with the idea of uploading the song, he said
“I was like, ‘Yo, I’m done with this. I’m gonna just record myself flaming you because we would just always go back and forth through the Xbox. Then I took my sister’s laptop, downloaded Audacity, and I recorded myself over the beat. Then I uploaded it to SoundCloud.”
At the age of 12, Lil Tecca started taking music seriously and decided that he wanted to make a career in the field of music.
Lil Tecca’s roadway to fame
In 2017, he released his first track, Tectri, with his friend, Lil Gummybear, and then the track was liked by the masses. His life changed when Taz Taylor, the founder of a young Los Angeles-based music collective known as Internet Money tweeted about him.
Lil Tecca’s fame hit high after a year when his single, Ransom, got released and then hit Number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It also received a humongous response on Spotify where it received over 300 million plays and got over 100 million views on YouTube.
When the Ransom music single dropped, he was invited to sing at the open mic, where he was extremely uncomfortable. When he was asked the reason why, he just said: “That shit was like a barbecue, dude”. Clearly, this young boy was not used to all the attention he was receiving.
He got great opportunities to work with successful rappers like Juice WRLD, XXXTentacion, and Trippie Redd also mentioned that he wanted to collaborate with Tecca. He is now currently signed with Republic Records. Through the same record, he released his debut mixtape called We Love You Tecca which also got popular and scored a no 4 on the Billboard 200 Chart. It has also been certified Gold by RIAA. As of 2020, his debut studio album, Virgo World is yet to be released.
He also mentioned how he is interested in Producing. He said if he was not a rapper, he would be dive into producing. About that, he said,
“I’ll give y’all producers three months, if that until I’m the best in the game at producing.”
