“Virgo World,” Lil Tecca’s debut album, finally hits the net.
5. CLOSEST TO HEAVEN
“Closest To Heaven” is the closest thing to a complete song on Virgo World.
Since “Closest To Heaven” is powered by a soothing beat, you get a version of Lil Tecca that sounds composed, focused, pimpadocios, competitive, and sly on the song. You also get a version of the rapper that understands the importance of riding beats and putting up melodies that are intricate.
Lil Tecca and NAV join forces for “Foreign.”
I like the following things about “Foreign”: The song’s hard-hitting beat, the infectious hook that Lil Tecca lays down, and both the flows and the confidence that Tecca and Nav rap with on their respective verses. All in all, “Foreign” is a pretty solid banger.
3. LAST CALL
Lil Tecca puts up a solid vocal performance on “Last Call.”
“Last Call” is impossible to hate. The song features a smooth-ass beat, infectious melodies, and lyrics that gigolos, playas, pimps, Lamar Odoms, and sex-fiends will love.
What 20-year-old put their freedom in jeopardy to f**k with Lil Tecca?
2. WHEN YOU DOWN
“When You Down” is clearly Polo G and Lil Durk’s song…
Emotional trap vibes permeate through “When You Down.” Not only is the song powered by an instrumental that you would hear at a sketchy church, but you also get passionate, powerful, hood-certified, and melodic rap verses by Polo G, Lil Durk, and Lil Tecca on the song.
Who was cutting onions in the booth when this song was made?
1. ROYAL RUMBLE
Lil Tecca sounds like Big Tecca on “Royal Rumble.”
“Royal Rumble” features a beat that will make venues shake, raps that will make bosses flex, and a style of rapping that A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie fans will love.
I don’t think that “Royal Rumble” is on the same level as “Ransom,” but I do think it’s just as good.

Me listening to Virgo World:
Lil Tecca is so frustrating to listen to… His swag is on point, I think he is more than capable of creating infectious melodies, and I love the big s**t that he talks in his raps. However, HE IS BAD AT CREATING WELL-STRUCTURED SONGS, HE IS BAD AT STAYING ON BEATS, AND HE IS BAD AT STICKING TO SOUNDS THAT WORK FOR HIM! (I had to use caps to show you guys how frustrated I am) With that being said, on Virgo World, Tecca shows flashes of greatness, and unfortunately, he also shows flashes of horribleness.
Is Virgo World terrible? No. I think the beats on the album are very good. I also think that the album has some solid guest appearances, melodies that will get stuck in your head, and lyrics that young bosses can relate to. If Tecca sounded a little more polished, a little more focused, a little more grown, and a little more unpredictable on the album, it could’ve been so much better.
