O.T. Genasis‘ hilariously off-key cover of Keyshia Cole‘s “Love” ballad is a viral sensation … so he’s determined to find out who got it yanked from YouTube … and put ‘em on blast.
We got O.T. at LAX Wednesday and asked why his pitchy new party anthem, “Never Knew,” has vanished … and he’s nothing if not suspicious. Signs point to Keyshia as a likely suspect, but the singer’s recently admitted she likes the cover and thinks O.T.’s take is funny.
So, whodunnit?? The rapper might not know for sure just yet … but his savage side-eye in this clip speaks volumes.
His investigation seems to be all in good fun, though, and the rapper tells us he’d love to collab with Cole … if it’s true she’s a fan of his comedic reboot. Still, he warns … if Keyshia turns out to be the mystery hater, he’ll let the world know.
Despite the YouTube deletion … Genasis is free to perform “Never Knew” live … as he did Tuesday night at Teyana Taylor‘s ugly sweater party.
Gotta say, we can see why it’s a hit — but don’t sleep on the original.
