The Bespectacled Teenaged Sensation Brings His Chaotic Energy to the Gym and the Golf Course in His Latest Video
Topping charts on SoundCloud with his melodic trap, bespectacled Queens artist Lil Tecca cuts a unique figure in the hip-hop scene. Traveling down to the Dominican Republic with director Cole Bennett, Lil Tecca has a blast in “Ransom,” his latest video. With a bouncy and bright beat that perfectly complements the Caribbean surroundings, “Ransom” finds the 16-year-old artist pridefully touting his originality, threatening to mess up anyone who jacks his flow: “I know I’m boutta blow-oh-woah-oh, I ain’t dumb/They try to take my flow, I take they ass for ransom.” In the video, premiered on the Lyrical Lemonade channel and enhanced by Cole Bennett’s trademark illustrations, the video finds Tecca and his friend Buru going dumb in a tropical resort, dancing on the golf course and getting fit with a team of strippers in a hotel gym.
With over 2 million streams in its first 24 hours, “Ransom” sits at #4 on SoundCloud’s charts and is currently trending on Apple Music. Another successful single for the Springfield Gardens-born emcee, “Ransom” follows hits like “Molly Girl,” which topped SoundCloud’s New & Hot chart in April and currently sits on the Most Necessary and Clout Culture playlists. With impactful singles like the Taz Taylor & Nick Mira-produced “Did It Again” and the Pitchfork-praised “Love Me” earning millions of streams, Lil Tecca is on the fast track to superstardom
