December 17, 2017•69 min
Today on A Waste of Time with ItsTheReal, Day 6 of the #12DaysOfPodcasts, we welcome Long Beach, California's own, O.T. Genasis to the Upper West Side! O.T. discusses his come up, failing the written portion of his driver's test, yet stealing cars, attending more than a handful of high schools, listening to Cam'Ron, T.I., G-Unit, Snoop and more growing up, devoting himself to music and mastering his live performances around the Los Angeles area. We talk about signing a single deal with 50 Cent, leaving 50's camp and dedicating himself to selling his own music, never using his Long Beach connections to even let Snoop know that he was rapping, and finally getting the attention of Busta Rhymes, who brought him to Atlantic Records and gave him a bigger platform.
