I’m going to go out on a limb here: Consequence is so underrated, it’s almost criminal, and I’m sure I’m not the only person who feels this way. Whether he’s a featured artist on a record, or on his own he rarely disappoints, and this lead song, Alphabet Boys, from his forthcoming Movies on Demand 2 is no exception. None other than Kanye West lays the foundation for the track, which can only be described as gritty-yet-melodic, while ‘Quence delivers his signature flow and wordplay amidst cuts by Statik Selektah. Although Cons doesn’t come off as particularly threatening overall, this track suggests that he’s not above “putting a semi to your colon,” which activated my side-eye somewhat. Whatever you say ‘Quence! You look like a teddy bear, so I’m going to go ahead and say “you need more people” on that one. Still, hopefully Alphabet Boys will be one more win in his long fight to be properly respected. No date has been given for the release of Movies on Demand 2, or his long awaited Cons TV album, but we’ll undoubtedly be hearing more from Consequence in the coming days.
