Lil Tecca "Ransom" Official Lyrics & Meaning | Verified I started freestyling on my songs after I seen Juice WRLD do it. Then, I just tried and then made a few songs out of it that I like. "Ransom," was inspired by just I don't care what no one else thinks. You feel me?
I don't care what no one thinks anymore.
I'm just going to do me now. You feel me? If people like it, they like it.
If they don't, they don't
I like it. When I recorded "Ransom," I was in L.A. I heard the beat. It was like (singing). I was like, "Yes." This is it. I heard the beat drop.
I was like, "Whoa. Yeah, this is in a whole different universe." Nick Mira didn't make the beat in front of me. It was just in a Dropbox. I was at Taz Taylor's house and then I just clicked on it. Usually, I don't pick the name of the song until after the song, so I kept going, I kept listening to it, "What should I name it? What should I name it?" And then I heard me say "ransom" and I was just like, "Ransom." My manager, we were in LA and then he rented one of those cars, and then I was like, "We need both.
Hop outside this one and get in that one." It was crazy, driving around in cars like that, but it's just a car, so … It's a thing with four wheels on it. It don't really mean that much to me. It's just cool to rap about. I said, "They take my ass, I take they ass for ransom," It's an inside joke with Toronto.They have these real funny accents so I …
You feel me?
I used the accent and then they all get mad. It's funny. "Fam, family.
Ting alive." They just be going crazy. It's … I don't know. I don't have no straps for nobody. I don't got no straps. The opps is people that be hating and I don't even know them. "Where did you come from?" No, I have never been to Europe or nothing.
I like fashion brands, clothes, but … You feel me? I don't be wearing hella of it. But that line was just …
I was just adding wordplay. Just fitting what works together. I said "die or rider" because I was going to say "ride or die" but the syllables didn't fit so I just flipped it and then it fit. I don't do multiple girls.
You feel me? I'd rather just one instead of a bunch. I don't like having to think so much. You feel me? I'm really simple. For the record, I grew up in Springfield Gardens, Queens, New York, and I moved to Long Island in seventh grade.
People don't support you but they won't even hate on you, but they still just watching. They plotting. "All right, what's his next move? We don't care but we just want to watch." You feel me?
Just in case. They ain't want me three weeks ago. Dudes that want to be down, bro. I'm like, "What?” There's dudes that have literally laughed to my face and want a dap from me. It gets that weird. Everybody want my downfall but, it's not in your control. You feel me?
You laced. You not … You out of here.
