Her lyrics can be considered crude by some, but definitely not by Genesis. “I don’t think I’m that explicit. I think I’m just a bad girl,” she says with a laugh. “My identity is very sexual. Sometimes I try to repress it, but I just can’t. I think that it’s because a lot of the time, when I write, I just lean on sexual experiences, because to me it just ties a lot of my thoughts together naturally. It’s not like I’m trying to shock anybody.”
But as sexually open as her music may be, there’s much that Genesis is very private about. “I like to speak in generalities,” she explains. It’s her way of protecting herself as well as her loved ones. “I can’t put anyone on blast. I care too much about the real-life consequences of relationships, and I respect friendships.”
What doesn’t concern Genesis is gender, especially in light of the fact that female rappers are relatively rare. She does have a particular appreciation for her female fans, though. In her eyes, girls can connect to certain themes in her music because, as women, “we share collective insecurities because of the way society is structured,” she says.
With whatever outlet she may choose, Genesis simply wants to create work that she can be happy with. “I would leave it all if I wasn’t happy, without regret,” she insists. “I just do things that make sense, but I’m aware that I change. If in a year it doesn’t make sense, I don’t know, maybe I’ll start acting. I just do what I want to do.”
