Pusha kind of sons Cons here and I really have to co sign his whole perspective on sh*t. Yeezy gave Consequence an opportunity. However, some dudes aren’t built for the front. Plus while Cons might have written for Kanye, now Kanye is finding that new work. Can’t fault Kanye for wanting to remain youthful and fresh. Cons didn’t play much of a role in Yeezy’s 2010/2011 swag, and he got bitter. Instead of taking the opportunity for what it was, Cons decided to pretend like he deserved more. Why are we even talking about Consequence right now? Because he used to be cool with Kanye West. That’s a reflection of Kanye’s wave, not Consequences’s.
What’s the deal with Consequence? Ever since he was dropped from G.O.O.D. Music, he’s accused you of stealing his lyrics and Kanye of stifling him creatively, among other things. Does he have any real reason to be so upset?
I just think it’s pretty pathetic, man. It all boils down to loyalty, and having certain principles. Nobody maliciously tries to do anything. This is a business, and sometimes things don’t work – some artists don’t pop. But I don’t think you blame the head of that crew for it, especially in a business like this, which is so self-sufficient. It’s really unfortunate, but what can you say?
I can understand his frustration, but It’s not like he’s the only guy who’s been dropped from the label.
And might I add this is only one guy [acting this way]. I don’t hear anything else about anybody else, and I’ve seen everybody, from Really D.O.E. (dropped) to GLC (dropped) … I don’t understand it at all. And if people really, really knew what I saw, like in Hawaii during the making of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, they’d be floored. People don’t have a clue how inviting Ye was to everyone to contribute things to the album. I don’t even wanna go into it … he was way too inviting. I ain’t never been that inviting on my own album. Hell no! But anyone who had something amazing to say had free range to just go out and do it. Whether or not it was up to Ye’s standards? Now that’s a different thing. But everyone had a shot.
