O.T. Genasis was one of a number of artists Beyoncé tipped her hat to during her iconic Coachella set last weekend. Bey used a section of the Long Beach rapper's "Everybody Mad" during her own song "Diva," dancing to the 2017 track as her marching band played alonng.
Understandably, O.T. Genasis was pretty happy with what happened that night. He told TMZ he was travelling when his phone "started going crazy, crazy, crazy" with people alerting him to the news. “Everybody was basically telling me that, ‘Beyoncé was dancing to your song at Coachella.’”
Eventually he tracked down a clip from the performance. “…I was like, ‘Oh yeah. This is lit right here. I sat there and I was like ‘not only did she play my song, but the band played to it.’ You actually have to put that together and be at rehearsal…that’s just dope, especially since I didn’t really get the credit I felt I deserved for the song when I made it. For her to realize that, man, and to show me love, that was crazy,” he added.
Beyoncé returns to Coachella on April 21 for the second weekend of the festival. Expect the millions of #Beychella tweets to flood your timeline once again.
