O.T. Genasis About
Odis Flores (born June 18, 1987), better known as “O.T. Genasis”, is a rapper of Belizean descent who grew up in Long Beach, California, after his parents immigrated to the United States. He was first signed by G-Unit Records in 2011, where he released his 2012 debut mixtape, Black Belt. He was later dropped from the label, only to be discovered by Busta Rhymes when he performed “Touchdown” four times in a row. This performance led to his deal with Busta Rhymes' Conglomerate Records label and the remix to “Touchdown”, which featured Busta Rhymes, French Montana, and Juicy J.
Despite the star-studded remix, O.T. Genasis didn’t gain a major following until he released “CoCo” in October, 2014. The song would later be remixed by Lil Wayne and mentioned by Nicki Minaj.
O.T. Genasis released his sophomore mixtape Rhythm & Bricks on September 22, 2015.
