Consequence Says He's Hip Hop's Best Lyricist

Cons responds to Pusha T comments, fires more allegations at Kanye West.

Published July 29, 2011

Consequence isn't too happy with the way Pusha T has been talking about him in interviews, so the former G.O.O.D. Music rapper and former A Tribe Called Quest affiliate called into Chicago's 107.5 WGCI radio this afternoon to get a few things off his chest.

Addressing his latest nemesis, Cons called Pusha the weaker emcee and suggested he was scared to challenge him directly

"Lyrically he can't compete with me," Cons said. "That's why he's doing all the smoke and mirrors."

But it's not just Pusha who Consequence considers to be inferior-- the Queens native declared himself the best and most talked about lyricist in hip hop.

"I'm probably the best pure lyricist in hip hop and in music right now," he asserted. "Right now, I'm the most talked about commodity in hip hop."

Cons responded to Pusha T's allegations that no one is checking for his music by reminding listeners that he co-produced the Beyoncé single "Party." He also said that Kanye doesn't talk to Pusha about him because he's just using the Clipse rapper.

"He's just worker," Cons said. "He was jet fuel for Pharrell Williams, and now he's jet fuel for Kanye West."

When asked why he decided to speak out against Kanye in recent months, while other lesser known G.O.O.D Music artists have kept silent, Consequence said he was just being true to himself.

"It's just the dynamic that lives within me," he said. "Am I the kind of man who stands up for himself? Yes."

At the end of the interview, Consequence debuted a song on which he addresses his beef with G.O.O.D. Music titled "Straighten It Out."
