On Thursday (March 30), Consequence and Mike Dean both took to Twitter to clear the air regarding the friction between them.
“I’m on the phone with @therealmikedean right now,” Consequence said right before someone replied and asked him to squash the beef.
After being alerted to the Twitter exchange, Mike Dean tweeted: “Squashed. Spoke to cons. Can’t let these internet trolls start up shit.”

The peace treaty between Mike Dean and Consequence arrived right after the two artists went a back-and-forth with one another on Twitter earlier this week.
A fan tweeted out a screenshot of an Instagram comment in which another fan suggested that Cons should seek out the Grammy Award-winning producer for drums on his latest track, “Disappointed.”
Consequence responded to the fan’s comment by saying: “Nah I’m straight on dat.”
Dean caught wind of the tweets and hit back at Cons by writing: “I’m good too. Thanks.” When another fan commented on how “weird” the rapper has been acting lately, the producer responded with a clown emoji.
This isn’t the first time Kanye West‘s longtime engineer has taken shots at the Queens native. Dean had left three trash emojis under a fan page in February that posted “Disappointed,” Consequence’s fiery track aimed at anyone who has turned their back on Ye.
Mike Dean and Consequence don’t have much history as collaborators, but both men have worked extensively with Kanye throughout his career. The latter worked on early albums for Kanye, including The College Dropout and Late Registration, while Dean has heavily contributed to the majority of Yeezy’s catalog as a producer and engineer.
Mike Dean has also been highly critical of Kanye West, including calling him “thirsty” in October 2022 for posting his private conversations on social media.
“Posting DM and texts from folks is the single most thirsty think a person can do,” he wrote.
