Ascend to the Top
Lil Tecca claims that he began rapping with his friends on his Xbox mic when he was nine years old. This was the point at which he began to acquire an interest in music and rapping. Initially, he had no intention of pursuing a career in music, preferring instead to pursue a career in the NBA. However, by his sophomore year, he had lost interest in basketball and had decided to concentrate on music instead. In early 2017, he released the music ‘Tectri,’ which he co-wrote with a friend named Lil Gummybear. It was the first of his songs to gain traction with listeners. He soon followed up with songs like ‘Callin’, ‘My Time,’ and ‘Rags to Riches.’
After the release of his first single, ‘Ransom,’ on May 22, 2019, he got even more popular. It was first released on its own, but it was later reissued by Republic Records and Galactic Records. The music video for the song was released on the same day. Cole Bennet edited and directed the film, which was shot in the Dominican Republic. The song was a hit, debuting at number 93 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and peaked at number four. It also charted in the top ten in a number other countries, including Australia, Finland, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. After nearly three months since its original release, a remix was created and posted on his SoundCloud account as well as other sites.
