“Cash On It” – which heralds O.T. Genasis’ upcoming major label album debut, due later this year – follows 2017’s viral hit single, “Everybody Mad,” available now at all DSPs and streaming services.
The track’s companion video, directed by Mike Ho (Chris Brown, Wale), was named “BET Jam of the Week’ upon its initial arrival. “Everybody Mad” was also of course recently featured during Beyoncé’s historic Coachella performances earlier this year. “It was an amazing performance,” O.T. Genasis told XXL. “I knew that this was a dope record, everybody knew it was a dope record, but it ain’t really get looked at like that. So when she did it, I knew that she recognized it, that’s when I knew I was doing something right.” She has also officially taken the notorious “Everybody Mad” routine on the road with her for her current “On the Run II” Tour.
The featured placement of “Everybody Mad” follows Beyoncé’s previous use of O.T. Genasis’ 2015 smash, “Cut It (Feat. Young Dolph),” during her 2016 Formation World Tour. That single – now certified 2x platinum by the RIAA – proved a top 15 hip-hop hit while also reaching the top 40 on Billboard’s overall “Hot 100.”
O.T. Genasis will be lighting the summer up by joining Wiz Khalifa and Rae Sremmurd on an epic North American tour. The “Dazed & Blazed Tour” begins July 21st at Detroit, MI’s DTE Energy Music Theatre and continues through late August (see attached itinerary). For more, please click here.

Genasis made his popular breakthrough with 2014’s RIAA platinum certified hit single, “CoCo,” reaching #5 on Billboard’s “Top R&B/Hip-Hop Songs” chart what also reaching #20 on the overall “Hot 100.” The “CoCo” companion video – directed by Conglomerate Entertainment C.E.O. Busta Rhymes – proved even more popular, with over 225 million views via YouTube thus far.
O.T. Genasis’ most recent mixtape, 2016’s “COKE N BUTTER,” saw guest spots from T.I., 2 Chainz, Remy Ma, YG, and Quavo, among others. The project received an ecstatic reception upon its release, with HipHopDX declaring it to be “a fascinating listen. O.T.’s hooks are as infectious as ever.”
