Former G.O.O.D. Music affiliate Consequence has killed speculation suggesting that he has squashed any issues with Pusha T, in light of his recent truce with his boss, rap star Kanye West.
Confirming he has resumed contact with Yeezy, Cons said he has not killed his issues with G.O.O.D. Music's Pusha T.
"I just think it's more healthy at this point to stay away from certain questions," Cons told radio host EI8HT in an interview. "Because I do have a blackout switch. It just goes. So when you start saying today's secret words, like certain people's names, that's why I just have to stop you. ... [Me and Pusha squashed our beef?] I ain't ever do nothing with nobody. The only person I squashed anything with was Kanye West." (Street Disciplez Radio)
While tensions with Pusha may still run high, Cons recently said his issues with Yeezy were resolved a couple months ago.
"I got a couple of updates," Cons said in an interview. "Me and Kanye spoke. When you have a situation like we had, you know, it's emotional, it's tempers flying, it's a lot of people chiming in. You know what I'm saying? Whether you're referring to the bloggers, the fans, supporters on either side -- unfortunately when you see war, you see division. You know what I'm saying? It got to the point where I was just like, 'I'm gonna hit son one time and one time only and see where you're at with this. Is it going to be all the way [turned] up.' ... So we spoke, well, I hit him and he hit me back with one of those all-caps tirades. It was an e-mail. He was pissed and rightfully so and I was pissed and that's why things happened the way they happened but like I said, he spoke his piece, I spoke my piece. He told me he loved me. The feud is over with Kanye. Is the feud over with other people? See me in the streets." (RapFix)
In early September, Cons spoke out on G.O.O.D. Music's Pusha T taunting his disses.
"You know, it's just a lot of people talking. Well, not a lot of people talking. It's one guy talking, and he's talking about how what I'm doing is pathetic," Cons said referring to Pusha. "And I think it's really funny that he says that, because the pressure's not on me. The pressure's on him, and that guy is Pusha T. The pressure's not on me because I'm not on G.O.O.D. Music, and I ain't been signed to G.O.O.D. Music for a year and [still] don't have a solid release date. I'm gonna be real with you." (Hip Hop DX)
In late August, Pusha said Cons was out of line for blaming his career on Ye.
"I just think it's pretty pathetic, man. It all boils down to royalty, and having certain principles. Nobody maliciously tries to do anything," Pusha explained in an interview. "This is a business, and sometimes things don't work -- some artists don't pop. But I don't think you blame the head of that crew for it, especially in a business like this, which is so self-sufficient. It's really unfortunate, but what can you say?" (NY Mag)
