After his beef with Q-Tip and Kanye West became known, Consequence has decided to further explain the details of his quarrel. The former G.O.O.D. Music affiliate recently spoke with Billboard to let them know that he feels he has not gotten the respect he feels he deserves. He also shared that he’s written or contributed to several records by Kanye West and more.
“I’m one of the premiere songwriters in music over the last decade and it hasn’t fully been exploited out of loyalty and out of business structure,” he said. “I wrote a plethora of records that people are familiar with… I wrote the verses to “Paranoid” with Kanye. It’s a lot of people’s favorite record from 808s and Heartbreak.”
According to the article, Cons also said he contributed to “RoboCop,” “Amazing,” “Say You Will,” Gone,” “Spaceship” and more from Kanye’s discography.
When asked why he feels he has not gotten his due, he said that it was out of respect for Kanye.
“It was just structure. It won’t happen again. It’s like when you’re in somebody else’s totem pole, so to speak, of course, the head is to receive the glory.”
As for his second major label album, Cons shared that he felt it was due to Kanye West, who he says changed from the person he was on his debut album.
“Once again, this is a matter of business structure. Look at it from my standpoint whereas Kanye is an executive producer of the project. I gave him the respect of being leader of G.O.O.D. Music. I didn’t want to make a move per se without him knowing. It was a respect thing. Now, if I would have took the initiative to say, when the Taylor Swift incident happened, ‘I’m done. I don’t approve of that’… I didn’t want to bust a young buck move and say, ‘Hey you disrespected the woman, I’m gone.’ And when he came back, he came back with a different dynamic. I definitely don’t believe the same person who made The College Dropout is the same person who made My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.”
Still, he let fans know that they can expect the second album to drop.
“The second album will still be released, it’s just a matter of just having changed business structure.”
