VIDEO OUT NOW ??? “Never knew”

A post shared by O.T. GENASIS (@otgenasis) on

O.T. Genasis released the song earlier this month, and to many fans’ surprise, Keyshia wasn’t here for it.

While she later had a change of heart, she’s explaining why she really took issue with it. She said on her FOX Soul talk show,

“…Passion for the music that I had so long ago when I ain’t have no hope… But now, I’m smooth sailing, I’m good, I got my family, getting my mom right. I’m okay. But I’m really trying to get back to where my music used to be, so I would like my classics to be left alone. is that wrong? As an artist to say… I mean, I love everybody that sings my song.. I don had Cardi sing my songs and Bruno Mars was singing it, Trey Songz was singing it in the club, but they keep my lyrics the same, you understand what I’m saying? So, how am I gonna get paid if you’re making new lyrics and you haven’t sent me out a check? I don’t even know how that thing goes. And people hitting me up saying ‘I would never listen to Keyshia Cole’s song the same…'”

O.T. Genasis has since responded and seemed hurt over Keyshia’s comments.

“D*** Keyshia  it’s like dat? I thought u was from da Bay ? I thought it was California love ? A n***a can’t have fun no more lol”

He then said her streams went up by 1 million in the last week alone. ”

“Streams went up in 1 week…and I’m the bad guy???? Smh  #Neverknew
