Former G.O.O.D. Music affiliate Consequence has stepped forward to address Pusha T denying having utilized his lyrics for his recently dropped "My God" single.
According to the Cons, Pusha grabbed a lyric from an unreleased track entitled "Last Supper".
"I had a record called 'Last Supper' that Kanye [West] wanted me to get Pusha to do a verse on when 'everything was everything,'" Cons explained in an interview. "So naturally I gave him my record, him being at the time my labelmate. Not to mention, I've known Pusha longer than I've known Kanye, for the record...['My God''s] beat is good, the first verse, cool. [I thought], 'He's doing his Pusha thing, word!' So we get through to the second verse and I hear 'It's the last supper for you n*ggas, just the picture repainted.' So I'm like, hold up, my record had went, 'Cudi got the kids, Cons got the streets, 'Ye got the globe, so we all going to eat/it's the last supper for you motherf*ckers, I don't make a promise I can't keep.'"

When confronted by Cons' accusations earlier this week, Pusha denied intentionally borrowing his bars.
"He said that I stole his lines? Wow. Nah, I haven't really heard much about it. Everyone who's been hitting me up has been telling me how crazy this song is. I don't know. I mean, I haven't taken anything from Consequence, or anybody else, for that matter. Just for the record. I've been in the studio with Cons, and we've talked, and numerous days we've laughed, and...I don't know. I missed that one. The way I've got to look at it now: I don't even know if that's for me. I can't even believe anything like that's for me, very honestly. I mean, until, you know, he told me something like that. I don't know what everybody else has got going on, but 'My God' is an awesome record. [Laughs.]" (Complex)
Cons subliminally called out the "My God" record last Saturday (February 12).
"I have inspired so MANY... N*ggas keep emulating my yesterday FLOWS LOL," he tweeted February 12th.
"'My God' I wish these CLOWNS would stop stealing my lines..."
"From certain Rappers I expect a Higher Standard..." (Consequence's Twitter)
Pusha dropped "My God," the lead single off his upcoming solo mixtape Fear of God, last Friday.
Pusha-T's "My God" was actually posted late Friday and has spent its time since bouncing from emphatic hip-hop blog co-sign to emphatic hip-hop blog co-sign ... and, now, predictably, to an emphatic Vulture co-sign. Pusha's spent over a decade standing out, whether on Clipse tracks or random remixes or critically acclaimed smash Kanye singles. But this is his first time, officially, as a solo artist. He does not fumble the opportunity. (New York Mag)
