"CoCo" is a 2014 trap single by Belizean-American hip hop artist O.T Genasis, which has garnered viral attention on Vine and elsewhere in the social media for explicit references to illicit drugs and humorous mondegreens upon its release in October 2014.
The song "CoCo," the lyrics of which almost entirely consist of allusions to the cocaine-trafficking business, was written by Odis Flores, a Belizean-American rapper from Long Beach, California (better known by the stage name O.T. Genasis), and first unveiled online as a music video via the artist's YouTube channel on October 13th, 2014. Upon its official release on October 27th, the rapper's first major-label debut single performed remarkably well in terms of both record sales and viewership, peaking at #26 on Billboard's Top 100 chart and its music video accumulating over 50 million views on YouTube within the first three months of upload.
Following the release of the song in October 2014, a number of parody videos featuring excerpts from the song began to surface on Vine under the tags #Coco and #Iminlovewiththecoco, with most instances specifically poking fun at the repetitive chorus ("I got baking soda") and the rapper's emphatic utterance of "CoCo," a slang term for "cocaine," by replacing the word with allusions to cocoa, the powdery ingredient used to make hot chocolate, instead (shown below).
On November 26th, 2014, internet music reviewer Anthony Fantano released a parody of the song under his alter ego Cal Chuchesta, in which he talks about cocoa (shown below), along with a remix featuring internet celebrity Filthy Frank and his alter ego Pink Guy.
