Kanye West’s label, GOOD Music, is made up of several of his cohorts and longtime collaborators like Consequence, John Legend, Common, Really Doe and GLC. So, to piggyback off of Ye’s current supersonic fame, the GOOD Music fellas came with a hot song and a video to match. The song, entitled “Disperse,” is Consequence’s track and features GLC and Really Doe. Consequence is of course Q-Tip’s cousin, and is also a decent rapper and is putting in work to live up to the family name. Check out the video link below and keep your eyes peeled for appearances by Pharrell, Chad Hugo, ‘Ye, Lupe and Fam-Lay. Director Rik Cordero did a good job on this one.

On the day he led a petition outside Fox News Studios in New York, Nas showed up on the news show-parody “The Colbert Report.” The show is on Comedy Central and is a spin-off of “The Daily Show” and is hosted by the ever-witty Stephen Colbert. After he had a humorous back-and-forth with Colbert as they sat on the boxes holding Nas’s signed petition, Nasir performed his Fox News jab “Sly Fox.” The appearance definitely did not disappoint, and if you missed it check out a clip below… Nas on Colbert.
