Hailing from New York, recording artist Lil Tecca is breaking through with one of the biggest hits of the 2019 and creating a genre all his own. Raised by Jamaican parents in Springfield Gardens, you can hear the dancehall influence sprinkled in many of his songs.
He started rapping in his early teens, inspired by artists such as Speaker Knockerz, Chief Keef, and others. At just 17 years old, Lil Tecca has started to build a huge following online releasing singles “Count Me Out”, “Love Me”, “Did it Again”, and “Molly Girl”.
“Did it Again” was his first break out track produced by Taz Taylor and Nick Mira and charted #4 on the New & Hot Worldwide chart on SoundCloud. It received over 6 million plays on the platform in just 3 months.
His debut hit, “Ransom” has garnered over 3 billion global streams to date and counting. The single has hit #1 on the Spotify US chart, the Billboard Streaming Song chart, the Soundcloud chart and is certified 2X Platinum.
His debut album “We Love You Tecca” hit #1 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop chart and is now certified gold. In addition, the Cole Bennet directed video has over 222 million views on YouTube and counting.
