G.O.O.D. Music artist Pusha T has shared his response to Consequence’s “Man Purses” record and if he felt the record was a shot at Kanye West‘s camp.
Pusha admitted to hearing the record was uncertain that Cons was going at G.O.O.D. Music.
“I heard it, but [then] I look at Consequence and I think about the history him and that whole G.O.O.D. Music family has together and Kanye [West] and so forth,” told interviewer Karen Civil about “Man Purses.” “If it’s even anything at all, I look at it as a spat. It ain’t nothing. I don’t know, I don’t really know how to look at it.” (Karen Civil)
Cons’ track hit the Internet in mid-October.
“I ain’t like the rest of these dudes,” Cons raps on the song. “I ain’t in to man purses or the bland verses/I put more emphasis, on what the fans purchase/I hear Cam‘s verses, over ‘Runaway,’ if they ain’t writing, the new dudes ain’t got nothing to say/But what’s the sense of having soldiers who don’t kick bars/If you can smell the odor from the discharge…” (“Man Purses”)
Prior to album pushbacks, Cons was aiming to drop a new album on “G.O.O.D. Music Day” last September.
“Well…the idea for doing the G.O.O.D Music Day emerged between me and [Universal Motown Records President] Sylvia Rhone, just to be quite honest,” Cons revealed in an interview. “I’m very communicative with Sylvia Rhone on everything that I do. We had actually met with Kanye one night, and as me and her left the meeting, we left together and I was like, ‘Yo, we need to really get this paper right now.’ When we left we thought that this is where we need to take advantage of the situation. So…she got on thephone…made some boss calls, and then we got to it. At the time when [Big] Sean announced that [he was also dropping his album on September 14th] I didn’t know that he was in the mix of that, but it’s all good. But initially, how that sh*t came about was me, Kanye and Kid Cudi. I just hadn’t announced it because I know we had things that had to be ironed out. And it got ironed out where it’s – ‘Cause actually at the end of the day, Kanye being the head of G.O.O.D Music had to approve that. And the approval was based on, ‘Let’s shake the game up.’ Cudi got the kids, Cons got the streets, ‘Ye got the globe, so we all gon’ eat. [Laughs]” (Hip Hop DX)
Consequence and West’s relationship spans over six years.
He recorded an album’s worth of material to be released in 2000, but the label cut back that year and by 2004, the label had ceased operations. In 2004, he released the mixtape, Take ‘Em To The Cleaners, which would find its way into the hands of Kanye West. After this West offered him a guest spot on his debut album The College Dropout. He went on to appear on West’s second album. In 2005, Kanye signed Consequence to his label GOOD Musicthrough a deal with Columbia Records. In 2007, Consequence released his debut album, Don’t Quit Your Day Job!. (Wikipedia)
