New York rap veteran Consequence is feeling much more than appreciated. The hip-hop artist has come forward to salute comedian Dave Chappelle for showing himself and A Tribe Called Quest major love during last night’s Grammy Awards ceremony.
Cons went to Instagram late Sunday (January 28) night and reacted to Chappelle’s name-drops before announcing the “Best Rap Album” category winner.
A Tribe Called Quest’s Jarobi White also hit up social media with his reaction.
Last November, group leader Q-Tip unleashed some fury toward the Grammy Awards for snubbing his crew’s We got it from Here… Thank You 4 Your service album.
“Y’all think it’s some sort of caveat because this is the first time that no white man has never [been] nominated in no major categories and sh*t? We were the most black cultured group out. That’s all we stood on. That’s what we represented. This f*cking album that we just put out, this last Tribe album, it stands with everybody else’s sh*t that’s up there. I don’t give a f*ck. Respect to everybody who is nominated and all that, but whatever, I’m speaking for mine. I’m sick of y’all f*cking Grammys n*ggas, man. Y’all f*cking get us to get out there to perform last year as coons and sh*t and y’all don’t give us no f*cking nomination? 9th [Wonder], what happened? We f*cking pollying and doing all this sh*t – I got respect for 9th, that’s my man, they were trying to get me to come out there and vote in the rap category for some new sh*t they’re doing but I didn’t do it and we don’t get sh*t? For that album? For that album!? I’m tired of f*cking biting my tongue all the f*cking time and trying to be nice and sh*t I’m going to say the sh*t that n*ggas always be saying and don’t be f*cking saying it. Yes I’m hot. Get off my lawn. Whatever.”
