This upcoming artist is one that you cannot miss! Hailing from New York, 16 year old Lil Tecca has been creating buzz on Soundcloud, as well as on social media with his goofy, quirky presence. His hit single Ran$om initially debuted No. 93 on the Billboard Hot 100. Lil Tecca continues to propel on the charts, nabbing a No. 65 spot on the Billboard chart. Becoming an “accidental” star from his Soundcloud tracks, Lil Tecca’s sound has garnered millions of streams, and even a 12-story billboard of himself in Times Square.
