Raised in Long Beach, California, O.T. Genasis (real name, Odis Flores) had to learn how to navigate his hometown's notorious streets at an early age. Through his adolescent eyes, he would see the crime in his neighborhood and eventually be lured into the underworld lifestyle.
Crowned by DJs across the country such as Funkmaster Flex, Felli Fel, Khaled and Greg Street as the “hottest song in the streets and the clubs,” “CoCo” literally addicts the listener after one taste of O.T. Genasis’ charismatic delivery and clever wordplay. “CoCo” first debuted to the masses with an unapologetically graphic video on controversial website, WorldStarHipHop, where O.T. Genasis not only shows what a day in the office of a street hustler is like, but gives the viewer an instantly memorable performance as he raps with magnetic energy conveyed at his live shows.
“We already knew a lot of television stations wouldn’t play it, but we were perfectly fine with that,” he adds. “That was definitely the consensus with Busta, members of The Conglomerate circle and myself. The visuals had to match the music. The song was for the streets and so was the video. All I can be is realistic.”
“The song became a viral sensation accumulating 60 million views on YouTube to date. “CoCo” also became one of the most Shazamed songs in 2014 and currently sits in Billboard’s Top 40 charts as it nears Gold sales. The song also finally gave listeners a chance to see the O.T. Genasis experience as he treks through out the country’s hottest clubs showing his performance acumen by performing the song up to four times a night at clubs through out the country, as many as 14 times in one venue.
