O.T. Genasis Belts Out Mariah Carey Hit, Crown Himself King Of R&B
He’s back at it. Jacquees may have sparked controversy after crowning himself the King of R&B, but O.T. Genasis is quickly coming for the title. The rapper has kicked up a bit of dust of his own after feuding with Keyshia Cole over his Crip remix to her song “Love.” When Keyshia publicly shared that she wasn’t a fan of the tune and criticized Genasis for not speaking to her before creating his track, he snapped back. The dispute wasn’t enough to keep O.T. Genasis away from dabbling in R&B, especially after 21 Savage shared his off-key pipes on Instagram.
