It's been almost a year since O.T. Genasis' breakout hit, and though he hasn't yet had a release that matches the hype of "CoCo," he's showing strong signs of developing into his own as an artist. On his latest tape, Rhythm & Bricks, Genasis sought to showcase his L.A. roots as part of his rap persona and favored detailed stories about his dope-dealing past over hook-heavy trap house bangers. One of the highlights off R&B is "Homies," a West Coast set-reppin' anthem that finds O.T. sounding right at home next to one of L.A.'s finest, The Game.
The laid-back production comes from up-and-coming L.A. producer Jereme Jay. Genasis starts off strong, rapping about how, during his come-up, he could only rely on the homies. Game finishes the track on his A-game, with the same loose confidence that has given his few Documentary 2 leaks so much promise.

I always ask can I go to my Granny house'
It's easier to sell them bags out the candy house
I never got time for my bitch 'cuz I'm gone
Out with the homies, so she think I'm doin' wrong
She say be careful 'cuz they might hit you up
I'm lookin' at this bitch like I don't give a fuck
