Nearly thirteen years (and countless 24 hour studio sessions) ago, Queens-born rapper Consequence made his at large debut. Linking up with cousin Q-Tip, Consequence joined Ali Shaheed and Phife Dawg on A Tribe Called Quest’s classic album, Midnight Marauders. His connection with the Tribe was both important and helpful, although it never allowed his solo work to materialize.
Fast forward eleven years, a Chicago MC and business man came knocking on his door. Chicago-born superstar Kanye West couldn’t believe Consequence was still unsigned and extended both his hand and a label contract with G.O.O.D. Music. Cons accepted the deal and now stands before an Industry he sees fit to feed his hunger.
Awaiting the release of his debut album, Don’t Quit Your Day Job, Cons dropped his fourth mixtape (Finish What You Started) in a series of discs—which have generated a large amount of underground success. The street album, coined by producer and host Clinton Sparks, features brand new songs, freestyles and exclusives with the likes of Mary J. Blige, GLC, Sa-Ra, DJ Khaled, and West all on board for the ride.
During his one-on-one interview with DJ “Z,” Consequence touches on his long standing relationship with A Tribe Called Quest and his recent domestic tour alongside the famed Mc’ed. In addition, he discusses how far he has come since deciding on becoming a rapper, and why he can’t knock the hustle of G.O.O.D Music label mate, Farnsworth Bentley, for trying his hand at a music career.
