It seems like Country Rap is starting to take over mainstream. With the recent success of Colt Ford and The Lacs along with current “rap style” hits by country mega stars Jason Aldean (Dirt Road Anthem), Toby Keith (Red Solo Cup) and Tim McGraw (Truck Yeah), one would think that this is a new concept. But if you are a true hip-hop historian you would recall that this movement actual began in 2001 with the release of Bubba Sparxxx’s debut album “Dark Days, Bright Nights”. The video for the first single “Ugly” featured Bubba and pals in the mud with pigs, on tractors and performing in front of a house covered with bug lights. If that’s not the epitome of Country, then nothing is.
Born & raised in Hudson County New Jersey by a single mother, Genesis spent many of her earlier years focusing on basketball and music. With a brother 5 years her elder who was heavily involved within the streets, she was exposed to a life that would eventually influence her to speak on the experiences she encountered. Losing her mother at 15 landed her in and out of foster homes which only made her skin thicker. Needless to say, writing lyrics became her biggest escape from life's pressures.
After years of grinding and trying to get on her own two feet, Genesis began taking her writing abilities more serious. Now being able to give her music the dedication it deserves, she has been releasing singles, shooting music videos and slowly making her way on stages to exhibit the passion she has for her craft. Her gritty, versatile style of music amply demonstrates the survivor and hustler mentality she possesses. Genesis is currently working on her debut album which will be released in the summer of 2018.
