In a playful holiday gesture, OT Genasis has injected a burst of humor into the festive season by putting a unique spin on Mariah Carey’s timeless Christmas hit. Rather than a conventional cover, the Long Beach MC has created a parody that adds a touch of blue to the traditional red and green holiday palette.
On December 26, OT Genasis unveiled his rendition of Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” aptly titled “All I Wear For Cripmas.” This lighthearted take showcases the 36-year-old rapper playfully struggling to hit the right notes, all while infusing the yuletide-themed lyrics with references to his gang affiliation.
In this Crip-centered makeover, the lyrics take a witty turn, with OT Genasis singing, “All I Wear For Cripmas” features the 36-year-old singing: “I don’t want a lot for Cripmas/ I just want to bang the C/ I don’t care about no presents/ I’m just going to smoke my trees/ I’m just thuggin’ on my own/ Come to the set and get put on/ By me and my crew/ All I wear for Cripmas is blue.”
This inventive twist not only showcases OT Genasis’s sense of humor but also pays homage to his unique style and background. The playful lyrics provide a fresh and entertaining perspective on the holiday season, making it a must-listen for those looking to embrace a different kind of Christmas spirit.
