Consequence Responds to Pusha T Diss
Cons, a former G.O.O.D. Music artist, has been firing shots at Pusha, Kanye West, and much of the rest of the label recently. Specifically, he dropped a video on Wednesday (July 27) in which he called West a puppet master. In turn, Pusha T headed to Chicago radio station 107.5 WGCI’s The Morning Riot, to address the situation.
“Me and ‘Ye have never talked about it,” Pusha T said. “That, in itself, should tell you how serious it is.” As for whether or not he would respond on wax, Push made it seem unlikely. “It’s not like a back and forth thing, because it doesn’t do anything for me, because the stuff he does isn’t good. To me.”
This morning, Consequence appeared on the same station, and gave his side of things.
“When you’re dancing around issues,” Cons began, ”it really shows one thing: it shows that you can’t comepete. And I’m gonna say this clearly. He lyrically can’t compete.” He continued, “As it stands right now, I’m the most talked about commodity in hip-hop. And I’m gonna go out here and say it: I’m probably the best pure lyricist in hip-hop and in music right now. And among the elite songwriters in this game.”
Combating Pusha T’s accusations of irrelevancy, Cons pointed to Beyonce’s single “Party,” which was co-produced by Cons and includes him on the hook. He then went on to call Pusha T a “worker,” stating that “he was jet fuel for Pharrell Williams, and he’s gonna be jet fuel for Kanye West.” He also spoke on other estranged G.O.O.D. Music artists GLC, Really Doe, and Rhymefest, saying that, though they likely had the same gripes as he, they weren’t speaking out like Cons because they go about situations differently.
Before dropping a new diss track called “Everybody Told Me To Straighten It Out,” Cons said his attack are “going to continue until Jay-Z intervenes.”
Consequence is preparing to release his latest mixtape, Movies on Demand 3, and plans to announce a release date later this week. —Adam Fleischer
