Although his parents didn’t approve of the lyrics, Lil Tecca (real name Tyler-Justin Anthony Sharpe) says that his hard music style is just for fun. He talks about the street life in his music despite not living it, but that doesn’t take away from his popularity and ability to make hits. He actually doesn’t feel pressured to be a “New York Rapper” as many people don’t know that he’s from Queens and don’t know what to expect when they hear his songs. In an interview with a YouTube channel “Cufboys,” he explains that his stage name actually came from an Instagrammer “Tecca” and she called him Lil Tecca as a friendly joke. It stuck, and now he’s amassed 3.1 million followers on Instagram, and many fan pages that are dedicated to not only his music, but fashion sense.

Rayven is finishing up her bachelor’s degree in Animal Science at the University of Delaware. While she’s not the quintessential radio station intern, the diversity in her experiences makes her valuable in unexpected ways. She’s worked at a beef and sheep farm for several years, a government research lab studying stinkbugs, and even in construction. In our past projects together, she hosted a dating show and is now organizing influencers for Firefly. She hopes to one day be a zoo veterinarian, and in the meantime, runs her own ‘scandalously informative’ Instagram, “Info_Hoe_00” to teach others about health and research using aesthetic appeal. She enjoys traveling out of the country, exploring unique local nightlife, and working out. Catch her on Instagram at @rayven.luxe for cute farm animals and travel photos!
