Consequence No Longer Affiliated With Kanye West Or Q-Tip

Cons explains he's no longer on G.O.O.D. Music and his rift from Q-Tip and Kanye West, branding him a "former friend."

After weeks of hinting about his fallout with G.O.O.D. Music, Consequence has officially confirmed his split with Kanye West, the label and his blood cousin/frequent collaborator Q-Tip.

Cons, who recently released the confrontational tracks “Man Purses” and “Everybody Told Me,” explained that his beef is rooted in the fact that Yeezy and The Abstract were set to produce his oft-delayed sophomore album Cons TV but that they pulled out and lost interest.

“We definitely have personal issues,” he told MTV News’ Sway Calloway during RapFix Live. “[Q-Tip] and Kanye elected to be executive producers of my Cons TV project. It's ABG [ed: anybody gets it].”

He stated that though they left him high and dry, he isn't bitter. “I’m not harping on anything, but I’ma point out the obvious. I committed my time, my energy, my efforts to what we all committed to,” he vented. “That’s the Cons TV project. It’s not to be understated. They rolled with me through everything. They heard the stories on the ‘Job Song.’ They heard ‘Uncle Rahiem.’ They rooted for me. This was the coup de gras.”

While many fans have interpreted his recent releases as venomous, his appearance was to iron out the truth. “My purpose for coming here was clarification. There are many fans who still align me with good music, and it’s not fair to their intellect that they’re fooled in that matter,” he said. 

As for being part of G.O.O.D. Music, the Queens, New York rapper made it clear he was no longer on the dream team. “I’m not part of G.O.O.D. Music. It’s via Bandcamp Records,” he said, referring to Kanye as a “former friend.” 

The MC, who released his debut Don’t Quit Your Day Job! in 2007, has changed his sophomore LP’s title from Cons TV to Get Even. Ahead of its release, Cons is set to release his Movies on Demand 3 mixtape, which will further address his situation with his former contemporaries.

  • Jose Vasquez

    Had a feeling this was going to happen. I thought he was good, but I knew Kanye wasn't going to like his voice, kinda spits like Sylvester.

    • Jose Vasquez

      I like the dude, I'm just saying that some thought his voice was kind of annoying. You see it didn't last long.

    • DeMarus Rogers

    When is Cons going to realize that he is a D-list rapper? He's wack! He should know that by now. I still don't acknowlege Cons as being a member of A Tribe Called Quest lol.

    • Anonymous

      Who said he was a member of tribe? Yes He was very good in his youth but he started slipping when he changesd his style to sound like Kanye. As for Tip he should have expected It, hes a great musician but seems to have some bad aura about him.

  • NANDO

    Yo cons can spit he helped Kanye get to where he was at and he was the bridge between phife and q tip when dilla and q tip were doin the umma shit. I've always said Q-tip was a diva and this jjsut justifies it even more. We all know Ye crazier than hell

  • eightyeight

    Yo this dude is talentless and a biter. Clown was ATCQ wannabe for years on years. Thats all he will ever be. Kanye shouldnt have even had to deal with his lame ass.

  • Tyshawn Stout

    Im not saying that I agree with Con all the way, but Q-Tip is not the up standing dude that he makes himself out to be. Q-Tip is a sneaky snake shit starting funny sounding muthafucka!! DONT BELIEVE ME DO SOME RESEARCH ON Q-TIP AND HOW HE IS BEHIND THE SCENES THE NIGGA IS A FRAUD!!

    why he keep cutting sway off. its an interview let him fucking interview you damn

    • law1

      Dude, if u were interviewing someone with that grill, i think it would be in ur best interest to back up once they started flapping...Rabies sucks...

  • wouzi

    CONS WE DONT BELIEVE U, U COULDNT MAKE IT ON YA OWN N EVEN WIT Q TIP N KANYE'S HELP, U STILL COULDNT MAKE IT. DONT BLAME Q TIP N KANYE!!. HOW HE'S ACTING I CAN TELL HE'S NOT HUMBLE DUDE N DUDE GOT SOME STUPID PRRIDE.

  • Seriously

    That's a damn shame. But there are 1000 sides to a story. Only the truth brings the count to one. Cons always seemed absent whenever there were G.O.O.D gatherings and promotions. But regardless, I hope he keeps making good (no pun intended) music and hopefully along with Kanye, Tip and Pusha, can put this all behind them.

  • sucks

    Cons is good as hell, and his collaborations with Ye were raw, hopefully they can work shit out. At least it's not a Beanie situation where he's running his jaw and talking all kinds of shit, that would be a bad move for Consequence, i mean look where Beans is at right now...

    Dude is a clown. He is affiliated with all these great people and is burning all his bridges with them. Good luck selling a record Cons.

    • Ddot

      wow ur a faggot...real muthafuckas don't give a shit about record sales...its about the music homie...and, when it comes to that, cons still keeps it real, and kanye makes gay-as-fuck wannabe-intellectual tight-pants-pop-garbage (post 2006 that is)...wake up dickface.

    • kayel18

      You can blatantly tell from the interview that Cons is just another bitter artist thats upset that he didnt blow up like Q-tip and Ye did. I love Cons, but the dude needs to grow up and stop blaming the very people that put his name on the map. Tip gave him a shot, Ye gave him a shot, at what point is it Cons' fault that he aint blow up?

    • Anonymous

      wow homie get off kanyes dick. i like ye but u tryin to judge a situation u know nothing about. why is he a clown? cause ur a dickrider

  • wellllllll
