O.T. Genasis “Cut It” Translated Into English

ot genasis, cut it, onyx truth

I’ve been meaning to write up a translation for this song for a while now, but I’ve just been lazy.  Then today I saw iComplexity’s Whitney Houston rendition of Cut It come across my timeline & I decided it was time to translate this song for all of the fuddy-duddies out there who have no idea what the hell O.T. Genasis is talking about…yet they like the beat.  Before we do the translation, check out Whitney Houston getting her Cut It on…


[Hook]

Cut it, cut it, cut it, cut it
Cut it, cut it, cut it, cut it
Them bricks is way too hot, you need to cut it
Your price is way too high, you need to cut it
Cut it, cut it, cut it, cut it
Cut it, cut it, cut it, cut it
Them bricks is way too hot, you need to cut it
Your price is way too high, you need to cut it

Translation:

I’m just going to say the words Cut It 8 times in a row simply because it’s a shorty catchy phrase that you all will like.
Not exactly sure what “Bricks is way too hot” is implying, but this line is about selling cocaine & if you are doing that, you need to stop.
The prices of your cocaine is way too high & my good friend, you need to lower the price buddy.
Here’s where I say Cut It 8 more times just because.
Then I’ll repeat my next 2 lines about cocaine and how you need to stop selling cocaine or lower your prices.

[Verse 1]

Run up them bands on the regular
Hitting my plug on the cellular
Tell my ex bitch that I’m sorry
Imma skate off in the ‘Rari
Keep 36 by my side
Imma go bake me a pie
Keep 45 on my side
Fuck with my niggas you die
All of my niggas say blood
All of my niggas say cuz
OT, I found me a plug
I got it straight out the mud
Keep it a hundred, no bull, I fell in love with the drugs
Bustin’ it down in the tub
Pay me my money in dubs
Water whippin’, lookin’ like I’m fishin’
Baseball in kitchen, with my arm I’m pitchin’
Rolie on, it’s glistenin’
And my darling, kissin’
Niggas steady trippin so I’m steady grippin’
Dirty money on me
Got a scale up on me
I don’t fuck with phony
‘Bout to sell a pony
All these niggas on me
All these bitches on me
Say my price is good, motherfucker show me

Translation:

Hi guys, my name is Odis Flores, better known as O.T. Genasis & I make a lot of cash money quite frequently.
And when I do make a lot of cash money, I like to call up my illegal activities connection on my cellular phone because you know…Sprint, Verizon, & AT&T ensure me that my illegal business activities with my illegal contact are secure over their phone lines.
Since I’m making so much money these days, I’ve decided to dump my girlfriend & refer to her as my ex bitch because that’s what us real illegal activities guys like to these days…and to that I’m sorry (sort of).
Now I’m going to go for a drive in my Ferrarri.
The business that I’m involved in mandates that I keep 1 kilogram of cocaine in my stash at all times.
So now that I have my kilogram of cocaine, I’m going to go turn this cocaine in crack.
The business that I’m involved in also mandates that I keep a .45 caliber pistol as well.
I keep that pistol on me because in this business, I have a lot of competition who would like to take my place.
But being that I’m so well respected in my illegal business, I have friends who are in the gang known as Bloods.
I also have friends in the gang known as Crips.
My name is OT and guess what guys, I found a person to supply my illegal activities business.
I found this person by beating the streets & making a name for myself as a real illegal activities businessman.
I always tell the truth, no bullshit from me.  I love selling drugs *ahem*…my illegal activities business.
In the tub in my bathroom is where I take my crack made from cocaine & break the rocks down into smaller pieces,
Which I then sell for $20 a piece to my local customers.
When I’m actually cooking up my cocaine, the way my hand holds the ladle to stir the cocaine around in the pot till it rocks up just right sort of looks like a guy who may be out trying to fish with just a net swirling around hoping to catch something.
After I’m done preparing my batch of crack, I then proceed to bag it up and get it ready to be sold.
I’m so good at this business & making so much money, you can tell by the shiny Rolex watch I’m wearing.
Look at my new girl over there just lusting over me due my illegal activity success.
I’m rather successful at this business venture, so with that I have a lot of haters which is why I keep my hand on .45 pistol at all times just in case.
Since the business I’m involved in is illegal, all of the money on me is illegal.
Regardless of the legalities, I keep a scale on me just in case I have to weigh some more product that I’m either buying or trying prepare to be sold.
Only people who are truly about this illegal business activity are allowed to be in my presence.
Guess what guys, I got a fresh batch ready to be packaged up & sold.
I made a lot of money moving that last unit and now I got a bunch of guys envious of my success.
I also have a bunch of women that are only attracted to men in this particular business lusting for me.
Well guys, I have told you that I’m pretty good at preparing & selling the best product in my business, you say you like my price…if so, show me the money if you plan to buy.  Thank you.

[Hook repeated]

Translation:

I know my verse was rather complicated, so I felt the need to make hook really elementary for you guys out there.

[Verse 2]

Went and bought a 911 with my trap money
A million up but still ain’t never touch my rap money
I’m out in LA fuckin’ with that boy OT
Flew to LA, got a plug on that OG
You know I’ve been gettin’ money if you know me
When I first met my plug, I told him, “I piss a hundred Gs”
I ain’t comin’ to get it unless you got a hundred piece
I don’t want it, fuck it
Your price, you need to cut it
Your ice, you need to tuck it
She fuck with me, she lucky
A half a million, all 20s in that Gucci luggage
Let’s skip the small talk, it’s time to talk numbers
Young nigga playin’ with commas, might go get a Lamb for the summer
I’ve been outchea in these streets all my life hustlin’
My nigga beefin’ then I’m beefin’, wrong or right I’m bustin’
My traphouse I love it
Put some Forces on my old school and I had to cut it
But should I put a roof in?

Translation:

Hi guys, my name is Adolph Thornton Jr., better known as Young Dolph from Memphis, TN & I made so much money from my illegal business activity that I went and bought myself a Porsche 911.
So far I’ve spent upwards of a million dollars, but none of that money I’ve spent so far has come from my legal business activity of rapping.
I’ve decided to go out to Los Angeles to link up with my buddy O.T.
Prior to flying out to LA, I secured a connection with a person who can help supply my illegal business activities back home in Memphis.
If any of you out there from the Memphis area are reading this, then you already know how successful I am in my illegal business activities.
So after arriving in LA, I finally got to meet up my illegal business activities connection.  To prove to him I’m serious about this business, I told him “I piss a hundred thousand dollars” and somehow that was enough to convince him to go into business with me.  Amazing!  I know!
But before I actually met with him, I told him I’m not coming to see his product he intends to supply my illegal business activity with unless he actually has 100 kilograms of the product on him.
As a negotiation tactic, I told him that I do not want to do business with him and to forget him.
I then thought about not doing business with him and then came back to the negotiation table and told him that he needs to lower his prices for me.
Somebody in the negotiation room had on a nice necklace with a lot of diamonds on it.  I told that person they need to tuck that necklace in their shirt or else they might get robbed.
There was a girl in the negotiation room who smiled at me due to my superior illegal activities negotiation skills.  If I allow her to be in my presence after this, she should consider herself a lucky woman.
Forgive me for being all over the place, but I forgot to mention, prior to the start of the negotiations I brought a Gucci luggage bag filled with a half a million dollars in denominations of just $20 bills.
I then told the my illegal business activity connection to skip all of the friendly talk and lets get straight to business.
Listen everybody reading this, I’m young & my illegal business activities are rather successful so I have a lot of money…so much money that I’m thinking about going to buy myself a Lamborghini this summer to celebrate my success in illegal activities.
My entire life has been devoted to making money legally or illegally, more so illegally than legally.
If my friends are having problems with other people, regardless of who started it, I’m going to shoot these people.
The drug house *ahem* building I operate my illegal business activities out of…I absolutely love it.
Well guys, now that I’ve shared all of that with you, I’m going to put some new big gaudy rims on my old school car.  I’m also going to redo the interior with all of this money I’ve made from my illegal business activities.
But before I go, do you guys think I should turn my old school car into a convertible?  Just curious.  Take care guys.

[Hook repeated]

Translation:

Well guys, Young Dolph and myself, O.T. Genasis would like to thank you guys for taking a peep into our lives.  We hope you enjoyed it.
I know we discussed some rather complicated subjects but once again, to put your mind to ease, we decided to give you simple catchy hook to listen to in case your brain started hurting from trying to figure out what we were discussing.  Thank you for learning about how to Cut It.
