G.O.O.D. Music's Consequence has given an update to fans awaiting his upcoming album, Cons TV, and said the project is still on deck despite multiple delays.
While keeping details scarce, the Kanye West associate talked about the project's concept and why his online presence forced him to change the title to Cons TV.
"I got a second chance to make a first impression," Cons said in an interview. "Cons TV, song-wise, individually each record is like its' own, its' own show. That's why I opted to change the title to Cons TV definitely as a salute to what I did online and each record now, is more -- it embodies its' own story." (XXL Magazine)
The album will also feature production from rap stars Kanye West and Q-Tip.
"It's a completely different direction, and not just because Q-Tip and Kanye did all the production," Cons explained in an interview. "[The records] are more thematic...The album goes from noon to midnight, every spectrum of television. Songs like 'When You Find a Girl You Love' is like your soap opera. 'On My Own' with Kid Cudi is like the A&E inspirational joint or the PBS self-reflective joint. 'All Up On Me' is the horror show....People will really enjoy it. It's slightly incredible." (VIBE)
Cons previously spoke with SOHH about the album's original title, You Win Some, You Lose Some.
"Day Job came out, I got it out on Sony but the first week was slow- -- you win some, you lose some," he said. "I couldn't get my first single played on MTV -- You lose some. But the 'Good the Bad and the Ugly' makes it to TRL--You win some. I think that's the perfect title for this album." (SOHH)
Aside from music, Cons discussed his relationship with Ye earlier this month.
"He's in a good place [right now]," Consequence, a frequent collaborator whose upcoming Cons TV album is being overseen by West, said in an interview. "We talk every two or three days. I got up with him right after [the VMAs] happened. At the end of the day, MTV has been a great outlet for [Kanye's label] G.O.O.D. Music as a company. Regardless of whatever [else] goes on, there's a great respect there, a great admiration for what the outlet is. We grew up off of that." (MTV)
A release date for Cons TV has not yet been confirmed.
