It is clear that someone has it out for OT Genisis following his “Never Knew” remix of Keyshia Cole’s hit single, “Love.” ​Cole seemed to have no issue voicing her opinion on OT Genisis’ remake of her classic single.

“I’m okay, but I’m really trying to get back to my music. So I would like my classics to be left alone. Is that wrong as an artist to say?” said the singer amongst her One on One With Keshia Cole panel. “How am I gon’ get paid when you makin’ new lyrics and you ain’t sent me out a check or anything like that? I don’t even know how that thing goes. And then people hitting me up saying’ like, ​’Oh, I would never listen to Keyshia Cole’s song the same​.”

The crip themed song seemed to be all fun and games when it first released but the joke seemed to be over for the “Push It” rapper once his short-lived music video was taken down from Youtube.

“I love everybody, ​I mean, that sings my songs​. I done had Cardi sing it, sing my songs. He did it on Valentine’s Day, ​Bruno Mars ​was singing it. ​Trey Songz​ singing it in the club. But they keep my lyrics the same.” Cole stated.

Keshia Cole’s boyfriend, Niko Khale offered a new perspective on the matter. He states that those that are heartbroken will listen to Keshia’s version of “Love” and those that want to hear “gangster sh*t” will listen to OT Genisis’ version of the song.

“I think it’s kinda hurtful a little bit, too, as an artist because there was no, ‘Hey, how you doin’. How you feel about this?’ ‘Cause that’s what you do if you are an artist. If I wanna remix a Prince song Imma go to Prince and figure out if I can use that. Or if I wanted to use, like how I did “Let It Go” and I re-did that,” she continued.

OT Genisis posted the clip of Keshia’s comments on Instagram with the caption “Damn Keyshia, it’s like dat? I thought u were from da Bay​? I thought it was California love​. A n*gga can’t have fun no more lol.”
