Former G.O.O.D. Music associate Consequence has called out Kanye West and revealed his involvement on the rapper's albums dating back to his 2004 debut, The College Dropout.
According to the Cons, he has helped pen hits for Yeezy with each release.
"It is true I participated in writing with Kanye. You could read it on credits on 808s and Heartbreaks, College Dropout. Every album that he's had, I've been involved from a creative aspect in writing of songs," Cons said. "Check the credits, I get that publishing." (MTV)
Cons also said West went into a music hiatus following his publicized 2009 Taylor Swift MTV VMA Awards interruption and ultimately left him stranded.
"At one point, Kanye wasn't even doing any music after the Taylor Swift situation, it's documented he went to Europe," Cons said, alluding to 'Ye's 2009 MTV VMAs outburst. "In the midst of all that, I was left hanging...As a man, you can't hang your fate on no other man, but when you think the man is your brother and you talk about every other single situation known to man, you would think it would dawn on somebody to say, 'Hey, let me make sure this all right, let me make sure my guy is good.' If I'm not your guy, that's fine; let's just have clarity on it." (MTV)
Last February, G.O.O.D. Music's Pusha T denied accustations claiming Cons helped pen a song for him.
"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)
Following Pusha's denial, Cons came forward and specifically challenged his remarks.
"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.'"
