Rhymefest’s history with Kanye West goes back many years. Besides both emcees hailing from Chicago, Rhymefest notably co-wrote Kanye’s hit “Jesus Walks.” ‘Ye returned the favor, appearing on two tracks on Fest’s debut album, Blue Collar, and producing one of them.
As such, the Chicago rapper has taken it upon himself to offer an opinion on Consequence’s beef with Kanye West.
After briefly addressing the matter on Wednesday (July 27) by saying that “[sic] every mans responsible for his own success,” Rhymefest took to Twitter again, elaborating on his position.
KANYE and I been speaking lately it interesting I see people who think he owes them stuff
I never understood letting another human have control over your success or failure in life.
My brotherhood with Ye is based in the fact I don’t beg or expect more then his friendship good convo and the exchange of ideas
Rhymefest added, “But as far as Kanye and his real homies notice that none of the guys he started with from Chicago talk shit about him. None of us.”
“Chicago Cats understand playing your position and organizational structure. We know that every man is responsible for his/her actions.”
