In the preview for the next episode of Black Ink Crew, viewers are told to get ready for some intensity. The clip shows Ceaser with Sky’s son, Gensis. As Ceaser tries to extend an olive branch, offering to act as the middle man between the 20-year-old and his mom, Gensis isn’t impressed.
“It feel like I’m lookin’ at your moms right now man,” Ceaser said soon after sitting down with Sky’s son. “Nah, you feel like you lookin’ at Gensis, man,” he replied.
While Ceaser may have good intentions, attempting to bring Sky — who had Gensis at 14 years old before allegedly giving him up for adoption — and her son closer together, too much damage may have already been done.
“I’m glad you met me and what not. I feel like everything that happened last time, with Sky… It was a whole chaotic thing. But I feel like, my sister [is] my sister. Her anger gets her in some s**t sometimes,” Ceaser began. “She gets me in some s**t sometimes,” he added, before saying that his only intention was to ease this situation.
Genesis quietly listens, while “sizing” Ceaser up, according to the Black Ink owner. “As I sit here, Gensis is sizing me up. I’m thinking, ‘Damn, this reminds me a lot of Sky.’ I can see Sky in this lil motherf**er. He look like if I say one bad word, he ready to pounce on me,” Ceaser said in his confessional.
Still, Ceaser went on. “We don’t know each other, but I been through a lot of stuff you been through. I’m not saying your moms perfect. Like, don’t think I’m saying that. I’m not coming tryna be on any bias. All I’m tryna do is make some type of mends,” Ceaser says, finally getting a response of out an eerily quiet Gensis.
“Your not the person I need to talk to for that,” Gensis snapped before saying that he doesn’t know Ceaser and doesn’t “want to build no relationship” with him.
“See it’s one thing to talk about somebody, but it’s two things to be yo actions into words,” Gensis began. “When you have a child, you go through that s**t together because you only get one child with that spirit man. No matter what you going through, you gon go through that s**t together.”
As the conversation became increasingly more heated, Gensis seemed to become more visibly annoyed. At the end of the clip, viewers can see Gensis removing the table between himself and Ceaser.
Gensis’ lack of a relationship with his mother affected him in several ways. Late last year, during an interview with Thisis50.com, he talk about turning to the streets to fill his missing voids.
“I didn’t really have family growing up, so I stated gang-banging when I was young. I had spent a lot of time tying to find a way for me to eat, and get my own s**t. I wanted to get out but, you know, I had noting to get out for,” the then-19-year-old explained. “I don’t need anything from her. I want to know her, but I don’t need anything from it.”
Whether or not Sky will step up to the plate like Gensis still needs remains to be seen though. What do you think about the beginning of Gensis and Ceaser’s conversation? Sound off in the comments and SHARE this article.
