New Music: O.T. Genasis - ‘Coco’ (Dark0 remix) + New Video

Dark0 stretches out O.T. Genasis' street anthem, which also scores a racy new vid.

2014 was a good year for hip hop newcomers making it big on the power of one hit track: joining Bobby Shmurda, Rae Sremmurd and Dej Loaf in this respect was Long Beach rapper O.T. Genasis, a protégée of Busta Rhymes, who basically rose to prominence overnight with his street anthem CoCo, an over-the-top tribute to dealing cocaine. 

There’s been two awesome pieces of news on the CoCo front this week: an incredible remake of the video clip with a heap of rap celebrity cameos, and a remix from one of our favourite new grime producers Dark0

While the first CoCo video took place primarily in a kitchen, and wasn’t even in high definition, CoCo’s upgraded things considerably: the re-make is set in a mansion and in the streets of South Beach, and there’s yachts and Lamborghinis! Also lots of women in racy bikinis, that are, erm, well-endowed in the backend. Most amazingly, DJ Khaled and Timbaland are in the clip, alongside none other than Ice-T, and his wife… CoCo! Watch the hugeness below:

Dark0, an instrumental grime producer from North West London that’s garnered a fair amount of respect for his spacious instrumentals, has made no secret of his love of rap music; often including rap tracks in his mixtapes (like this one for The Astral Plane) and last year giving us one of the great underground remixes of the year when he teamed up with E.M.M.A. to take on Future’s Move That Dope. He’s stretched the beat and vocals of CoCo right out, and added in his far-off, glimmery synths – it’s a winner. Stream below. 

Busta Rhymes recently told Rolling Stone about the time he discovered OT, performing at Playhouse Night Club a few years back. “I was so turned up by what he displayed, not just as an MC but as a showman – he was jumping on the speakers. He damn near was swinging from the chandeliers in the bitch.” O.T. Genasis is currently prepping his debut major label album for a release this year.
