I Should Be Ashamed of Myself: Starring Consequence
Written by Danny P Ocean on July 31, 2011
Listen I am from the old school, so I don’t care for senseless beef, especially if it is undercooked. And your boy Consequence is serving exactly that, bullsh*t. Even though I help run this site, I don’t follow every rapper and his/her going on’s. Sometimes things slip right past me. But when Consequence’s blip turned up on my radar, I had to see what the fuss was about. And it sounds like homie is mad at G.O.O.D. Music, especially Kanye West and Pusha T.
So the question I have is why you mad Cons? You feel like you should be put on more than you already have? They stealing your cool over at office G.O.O.D. Music? Or is it just that time of the month? You don’t have anything better to do with your rhymes? Dog I first heard of you in 94 on the A Tribe Called Quest b-side to Award Tour. You had your own SONG on A Tribe Called Quest release!! Do you know how big that was? Then when Phife started to come up missing, Q-Tip brought you into the fold on Beats, Rhymes and Life. That was around 96 wasn’t it? Way before we heard of a Kanye West or a Pusha T, or anybody that they know.
I bring that up because you had multiple opportunities to shine, and for whatever reason you dropped the ball. Fumble fingers looking… It ain’t Pusha T fault, it ain’t Kanye West fault, it ain’t Q-Tip fault, it ain’t Jarobi fault, it ain’t… well you get the idea. Cons you sounding like an ole scorned lover or some shit! What Tupac say, “Ninjas looking like Larry Holmes, flabby and sick!”
Rhymefest hit the shit right on the head.
KANYE and I been speaking lately it interesting I see people who think he owes them stuff. I never understood letting another human have control over your success or failure in life. My brotherhood with Ye is based in the fact I don’t beg or expect more then his friendship good convo and the exchange of ideas. We bounce rhymes and music off each other and debate the world and its peace.
But as far as Kanye and his real homies notice that none of the guys he started with from Chicago talk shit about him. None of us. Chicago Cats understand playing your position and organizational structure. We know that every man is responsible for his/her actions.
Now Consequence shut up and wait to Watch The Throne!!
