Ricky Gervais Endorses Genesis Elijah's New Track

It's not everyday that the Hollywood A list elite and the UK underground Hip-Hop scene cross paths but today was this day.

Ricky Gervais, who is getting ready to host the 69th Golden Globe awards next month had found himself involved in a bit of controversy again over comments made on twitter yesterday. As always his fans came to his defence and one of those fans just happened to be UK rapper Genesis Elijah.

Genesis Elijah tweeted Ricky Gervais with a quote from one of his songs saying "If you don't like what I tweet then unfollow and block" along with a link to the video of his song titled 'My Truth'

To Genesis Elijah's surprise Ricky Gervais then retweeted it to over a million of his twitter followers adding the word "Inspiring"

Genesis then messaged back saying "Hope you liked the track. Thanks" to which Ricky Gervais replied...

Genesis Elijah is now only the 31st person to be followed on twitter by Ricky Gervais.

The song 'My Truth' which features a vocal sample of Ricky Gervais has seen a massive increase in views since being shared and is now tipped to be one of Genesis Elijah's most watched videos

The song will feature on Genesis Elijah's forthcoming EP 'Painkillers & Pilkington' who's title is a nod to Karl Pilkington who along with Steven Merchant featured on The Ricky Gervais Show podcast
