Former G.O.O.D. Music affiliate Consequence has taken the higher road and decided to diminish his feud with Kanye West after months of waging war against the rap star’s team.
According to Cons, they squashed tensions through an e-mail exchange.
“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 turnt 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)
Earlier this month, 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)
Former G.O.O.D. Music affiliate Twista recently gave his input on the feud.
“It’s really an unfortunate situation,” Twista said in an interview. “I wish those brothers could have really sat down and talked before that type of stuff goes public, ’cause it’s really an in-house type of situation. You see it happen in sports all the time – in the locker, they say what happens stays in the locker room. I feel like that’s something they could have talked it out about, because it’s happened before. I’ve seen it happen with Remy Ma and Fat Joe. The crews got to start trying to keep they business like that in-house, and hash sh*t out so that everybody won’t think that we just all about getting to tour with each other and not being able to work our business out. There’s money out here for all of us. We shouldn’t have to go at each other here like that, especially when we’re all here together.” (WGCI)
