Today, June 14, is the birthday of Queens-born rapper and producer Consequence, who now turns 41.

Born Dexter Raymond Mills, Jr., Cons got his start in music when he first appeared on A Tribe Called Quest's 1996 album Beats, Rhymes, and Life. Cons became known for the 1997 breakout single "Queens Get The Money" featuring Havoc of Mobb Deep. Cons signed on with Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music in 2004 and, in 2007, released Don't Quit Your Day Job!, his first and only LP on the label, in 2007. After leaving G.O.O.D. Music in 2011, Cons started his own record label, Band Camp Records and has since worked with the likes of Lupe Fiasco, Q-Tip, John Legend, Jae Millz, Beyonce and more.

Cons has been looking to the future more and more thanks to his adorable son Caiden. The father and son combo have dropped music together and little Caiden even came up to pitch for the XXL Freshman class in 2016. Check out Cons' and Caiden's great relationship on display on the track "Heir to the Throne."

As 2016 came to a close, Con flexed his production muscles and rap skills once again by working on A Tribe Called Quest's final album We Got It From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service alongside Busta Rhymes, Q-Tip, Ali Shaheed Muhummad and Jarobi White. In 2017, he joined Kanye West in the studio to help craft his Ye album.

Happy Birthday, Consequence!
