O.T. Genasis Performs “Push It” and “Cut It” at 2016 BET Hip Hop Awards
The 2016 BET Hip Hop Awards aired Tuesday night (Oct. 4) with performances from T.I., Gucci Mane, Desiigner, Young Thug, Lil Uzi Vert, Quavo, Lil Yachty, Isaiah Rashad, D.R.A.M., 21 Savage and Dae Dae. O.T. Genasis hit the stage as well, sporting a Bartolo Colon Mets jersey, to perform his hits "Push It" and "Cut It."
Watch the performance above, where Snoop Dogg, DJ Khaled, Desiigner and more light up at the first opening notes of "Cut It." The set doesn't include any flash or spectacle, just O.T. bopping across the stage, making hall of fame level faces. "Cut It" was certified gold just this past June, and received a remix featuring Kevin gates and Young Thug back in May. Thugger though looks less enthusiastic about the performance up top.
In February, Genasis spoke about the pressure to follow up his smash single “CoCo” with something just as big. “It was a problem for me because when I did the record it was so big here and overseas and it happened at the same time. So I was actually scared. I was scared to lose,” he said. “It was so much pressure and I’m scarred to fail that it was crazy. But at the same time, I just forgot everything. In the beginning it was just me and I forgot to just keep it original and be yourself.”
In the clip above, O.T. is definitely being himself, stirring the crowd up in the process.
