Consequence weighs in on Pusha T cutting ties with Kanye West and G.O.O.D Music. The Daytona rapper in a previous interview with XXL said he was no longer affiliated with G.O.O.D. Music, and said Kanye West is not well following the College Dropout’s anti-semitic comments that has had him blackballed from top music events and social media platforms.
In a recent interview with The Art Of Dialogue, Cons accused Push of betraying Kanye West during a time of crisis.
“[G.O.O.D. Music] is something that I help build with my bare hands. It wasn’t nothing. Whatever the narrative was at Roc-A-Fella, at the end of the day, a lot of it was on my back,” he explained. “Kanye eventually propelled to stardom, so whatever we did worked. My equity is in his career and in the label. So that’s where I’m disgusted with somebody who wasn’t there from the start. Once they situation comprised—when Ye is in a situation he talked himself into, he’s got to be responsible for that 100 percent—but we’re not going to stick together?”
Consequence continues, “Whether I agree with Kanye or not, it’s not the principle of that. Like I said, I told you all this street sh-t. Pusha T told you all the street sh-t and now we doing this industry sh-t? Nah. Now, in fairness, does Pusha T have a right to distance himself from situations he don’t want to be in? Yeah. He a man. Do those two have grievances behind the scenes that are not being spoke about? Yes, they do. So part of this sh-t is kinda cap.”
Pusha T, who was in the past identified as the president of G.O.O.D. Music recently announced he quit the role, but Cons claims the rapper hasn’t filled the position in years, and attributes the Diet Coke rapper’s comments to saltiness.
“The whole Good Music president sh-t? That’s cap. There was no G.O.O.D. Music president sh-t, n-gga. That sh-t is cap. It ain’t been that sh-t for years. When n-gga kickin’ some resignation sh-t, there ain’t no resignation sh-t. Just say you mad about the Donda 3 party in Chicago when he ain’t let you on stage. Say that,” Consequence says.
“You basically deading G.O.O.D. Music like, ‘I’m going for the Grammy and f-ck the block.’ What you want me to do? Say, ‘Alright yeah, keep going?’ Ain’t nothing p-ssy about me, n-gga. At all. You dig? And ain’t none of this personal. Everybody got the right to do whatever they want to do, and that includes me. So I got the right to be like, you know what? Nah. N-ggas ain’t gonna just dead the block like that. Just so you can eat? You Pharrell’s man. That’s why you running around with Pharrell right now, and that’s cool. All that sh-t is cool. But my man, he in a crisis and n-ggas is out. I’ll say it once and I’ll say it again. I ain’t the only n-gga who got a check with Ye. I’m the only n-gga that said something though. You want me to respect that sh-t? Come on, bro.”
During his interview with XXL, King Push admitted he has had fallouts with West in the past and says they always settle their disagreements.
“We started working together in 2010. So, my relationship with him has never been like every-body else’s in regard to the filter,” Pusha T said. “I never had a filter with him. I’ve always spoke my mind. People gotta remember, too. This isn’t new for me, when it comes to disagreeing with him politically and things like that.”
Consequence agrees Ye and Pusha T “may communicate” in the future and resolve their situation, but he believes Pusha T is playing a lot of games just to win a Grammy “and I’m not really with none of that.”
“They may communicate and find resolve to that situation,” he says. “But as it stands, I don’t f-ck with that ‘cause I expect more out of Pusha T, honestly. This n-gga base everything he stand for on the streets. I ain’t saying you gotta support it or not. If Pusha T wins a Grammy, Ye did half the album. So what? You’re not going to thank him? Or you gonna thank him and act like you ain’t say you resigned?
“It’s a lot of games and I’m not really with none of that sh-t, to be honest with you. That’s my take on it. Ain’t none of this personal. That’s me speaking as a man. I ain’t in the same space. Many moons ago, I went at n-ggas ‘cause I ain’t like how sh-t was going down. I’m not in that space. I’m a grown man and I’m going to play no games with nobody. I’m not speaking to n-ggas one minute and then acting like I don’t f-ck with them the next. I’m not with that. At the end of the day, it was all good when they n-ggas were doing the pub dance in the ‘Diet Coke’ video. You gotta stay like that or you don’t.”
Meanwhile, Kanye West was spotted out recently shopping at Balenciaga with his new wife Bianca Censori. The luxury brand were among the top companies that cut ties with the Yeezy creator, but Ye says he loves Balenciaga because their designs make him feel like a real life action figure.
