For quite some time now, Queens, New York rapper Consequence has not hesitated in expressing his distaste with Kanye West and G.O.O.D. Music. While Consequence’s gripe seemed to initially start with Kanye West, he’s gone on to call out several other members of G.O.O.D. Music including Pusha T and his cousin Q-Tip.
During an interview with ThisIs50.com, Pusha T seemed heavily taken aback by Consequence’s claims that The Clipse rapper stole his style from him and even revealed that at one time the two artists were cordial with one another.
“What style? Who the fuck is he?” Pusha T questioned. “I don’t know what style. What style is it…I’ve been around him a couple of times and I swear man the times I was around him he was a good guy, no issues. I thought we was on a decent level. Let me tell you, for real, I think people be having real issues probably with ‘Ye or some discrepancy with them and it bleeds over into us…Again, it’s one of those situations where I don’t be having real issues. I don’t know these people like that. And when I have met them it’s always been on a good, cool note.”
In a separate interview with Sway Calloway of Shade 45’s Sway In The Morning, Pusha spoke on the time he was questioned by his mother about being in the Illuminati. The rapper explained that his mom was approached by the people in her church about his possible involvement in the cult-like group.
“I never asked him [Kanye West] about the Illuminati,” Pusha revealed. “But just in conversation I hear him be like ‘Man, people saying I’m part of the Illuminati. These people are crazy.’ But it’s bled over to everybody…My mother asked me the other day, ‘I heard you part of something called the Illuminessence.’ And I’m like ‘Ma, what are you talking about?’ And she was like ‘Nah, you a part of something called the Illuminessence. The people at church told me you a part of something called the Illuminessence’…So come to find out she’s talking about the Illuminati. And I’m talking about I was so hot…I was gonna go to her church in a bright red suit, hair pressed out like Vampire In Brooklyn, and sit with her in church all day. It really had me upset.”
With his Wrath Of Caine mixtape now available, Pusha T is currently focusing on his next project titled My Name Is My Name.
