The rapper/producer/writer/songstress answers our deepest inquiries.
Sonic multi-hyphenate and New York City native, TECLA began exploring her musical talent at a young age studying classical piano. The child prodigy has since expanded her repertoire to a battery of genres, ranging from hip-hop, to reggae and even punk rock.
TECLA recently dropped We Are The Lucky Ones, her second full length-studio album this March via Mayimba Music and has gotten more than a little play around the LAC office. We got a chance to catch up with the princess of underground, and here’s what she had to say:
So, what’s up? Chillin…just trying to keep this PMA
Can we get you something to drink? Always. Its 12PM somewhere
What are you wearing? Something that I got from the thrift store that looks hella expensive but is really under $10
Are you single/taken/heartbroken/hopeful/bored? Pretty much married without the ring (I hate diamonds)
Are you interested in anyone right now? Tupac
Do anything last night? I DJ’d at The Blind Barber actually. Had people rocking till the lights came on OF COURSE
How late did you stay up? 5am…every time I tell myself its gonna be an early night its not
Meals or snacks? I love a hot meal, snacks are annoying
How often do you consume alcohol? Somehow a beer or wine has been creeping into my mouth every day…I don’t know how it got there
You kissed a girl and liked it? Love girls
Please don’t touch that. I touch whatever I want
What’s on your feet? Nada! Keep them bare like a true Haitian
Blue or black ink? black
Ever sit down in the shower? Hell yeah. Especially in my “woe is me” moments feels so dramatic.
When was the last time you really froke out at someone? I don’t know what froke is but probably yesterday
What was the first thing you said aloud this morning? Cleared my throat and said “can I talk?”
Are you listening to music right now? Listening to the birds outside my window. Its actually a true hobby of mine
Will you text the person you like today? Everyone I text I like
If we gave you $50, what would you buy? Probably like 10 outfits at the thrift store, or some good food, or dranks
Last 3 google searches? I don’t google
What are you doing later? Getting Thai food in Jackson Heights for Pegasus Warning’s birthday…you should check him out. And check out Thai food in Queens in general.
