This needs to happen more often. Consequence recently did interviews on Hot 97 and VLad TV claiming he was ready to lay hands on Budden. The reason for this fuckery? Simply Budden stating he had no interest in doing a joint with Consequence. From all that talk before you’d think Consequence would have damn near given Joey the Wu-Tang treatment. Raekwon, Consequence is not.

A few things about this trailer for season 3 of VH1′s Love & Hip Hop. First off, God bless you, Tahiry (1:06-1:10 mark). Secondly, there’s some interesting dynamics/storylines that could give this over the top show some depth. Consequence trying to implement Islamic practices on his woman and child’s mother (who looks to be a non-believer), coupled with the spiritual contradictions of the music industry, could make for informative and compelling TV. Joe Budden fans are quite familiar with the ladies of his life through his music, but seeing his complicated relationships play out in real life will either confirm the tracks or reveal their embellishments. Not to mention, Budden seems to also be revealing his issues with addiction and depression.
With all that said, the trainwreck fuckery is also on hand for those looking for nothing more from their “scripted reality TV.” Love & Hip Hop season 3 premieres on January 7.

Ace Hood’s listening session revealed a short diss Pusha T fired back on Consequence via Hood’s “Go N Get It (Remix),” which also features Beanie Sigel and Styles P. The song itself is essentially “Hustle Hard” with a slightly different chorus. The diss comes at 1:42 (“Consequence, nigga talk is cheap/ You don’t want no problems/off the beat/For I off his ass/ With his awful teeth.”). Considering Cons has already dropped diss records and videos, you can be sure he won’t let this little shot slide. Based on Pusha’s recent interview with 107.5′s The Morning Riot, this might be all we get from him.

“I was in the game before G.O.O.D. Music…”
Consequence has finally moved past the subliminals and interviews to lyrically confront G.O.O.D. Music on “The Plagiarist Society.” Cons accuses The Clipse of stealing rhymes and flows. It’s real slick how he incorporates their albums titles, real names and even book titles into the diss. He doesn’t say ‘Ye’s name, before refers to him as the “coward from the Midwest.” To conclude, he says that Pusha T’s “boss is next,” verifying we’ll likely get a full-fledged Kanye diss on Consequence’s upcoming Movies On Demand 3.
Lyrical battles usually start over something trivial, so personally I don’t mind as long as music is straight and it stays on wax. However, I think Consequence has bad timing on this one. He’s shown in the recent songs that he can make solid music without G.O.O.D. Music, and Movies On Demand 3 could have been the platform to show that he can stand on his own two feet as a viable solo artist. Now, whether right or wrong, he’s running the risk of getting that “disgruntled ex-employee” tag considering he’s already done MTV and Billboard interviews airing out his grievances.

“We’re on the same train, different cars…”
You can’t go wrong bringing together three graduates from the respective schools of Tribe Called Quest, Little Brother and Slum Village. For his upcoming Movies on Demand 3, Consequence recruits fellow vets Big Pooh and Elzhi to address new jacks who try to walk before crawling in the game. The hook features newcomer Tannie J. Cons says he was going for a “nostalgic 90′s feel.” You decide if he hit his mark.

“One thing about the public eye, it never blinks…”
Note to all rappers, rocking (correctly) over classic Hip-Hop beats never gets old. Consequence does just that with “Public Eye,” his latest drop off the forthcoming Movies On Demand 3. The video is directed by Cons himself and Jack Cearnal. Nice verse that’s concise and to the point on his current press and his future career plans.

Although Consequence is done with G.O.O.D. Music., he has a lot of tracks he recorded in the years under Kanye West’s imprint. Earlier this year, a snippet of this song hit the internet to much fanfare. After hearing the entire track, it sounds like Consequence’s aborted Cons TV album might have been notable for having the signature soul sample loops that Kanye initially made his name on. Ironically, some of these lines can now be interpreted as a manifesto to Cons’ mentality following his very public GOOD Music split few months back.

“The kid who killed the king with the comic book flow…”
With Thor out, X-Men: First Class dropping this weekend and Green Lantern later in the month, the climate is pretty good for a emcee to release a comic book-themed song. “Comic Book Flow” will be a part of Consequence’s Movies On Demand 3 (June 14). Producer Ed Roc’s big band style horns add the needed energy to offset Consequence’s low-key voice. While there are a few lines that could construed as subliminals at his former G.O.O.D. Music camp, the track is light-hearted enough to hopefully be an indication that Cons won’t use his latest project to obsess over past grievances.

“The last supper for you niggas/ Now repaint it…”
Pusha T is G.O.O.D. Music’s wildcard. For anyone who’s listened to a Clipse album, there’s no doubt this Virginia emcee can rhyme. But when you leave the group format, that doesn’t necessarily mean you have the skill to carry a solo project. Sure, Pusha has held his own on tracks with the likes of Jay-Z and Kanye, but the solo album format is a whole different beast. What better way to answer those murmurings then with a quality leak off your upcoming solo project?
When people think “epic-sounding beats,” that usually translates to the power ballad tracks Alex da Kid is making his name on. Pusha’s “My God” gives another, most creative variation of the term. Hit Boy Surf Club’s beat thrives on its live instrumentation, which comes from a trippy Bo Hansson track. Nothing is changed, but some melodies are so perfect there’s no need.
There are lots of slick lines here, but Pusha doesn’t go overboard with the punchlines. That’s smart, as it keeps you from categorizing this offering as a glorified mixtape joint. His Clipse roots of coke allusions are there, and declarations of his future greatness. If you’re already a Pusha T fan, you should be very satisfied. Fear of God may turn out to be one of the sleeper mixtapes of 2011.

“I can tell that you’re mad/Because you getting hostile/’Cause I got my own business/And I ain’t finished high school”
When the cover art came through for this new collab, I did a double-take. I almost confused Consequence with Keith David of Dead Presidents fame. While most of the Hip-Hop world is quiet this Christmas Eve, Consequence, Diggy Simmons, and Mac Miller are continuing the grind with a surprise boom-bap offering in “I’m VIP.”
Lee Bannon handles the beat, using a dusty sample loop for the throwback 90s feel. Statik Selektah adds more atmosphere with scratches of Biggie lines from “Big Poppa” (“Who rock grooves and make moves with all the mamis…”). As you can deduce from the title, this is an “all about me/boasting” track. Consequence keeps a laid back flow for the lead-off position. Young Diggy has the slickest lines out the bunch, and is the emcee most comfortable with his self-boasting (“And y’all got Twitter followers/But I got apostles”). Wiz Khalifa protegé Mac Miller hasn’t had many high-profile collaborations, but he does a serviceable job in the coveted last spot. It would’ve been better to have him switch with Diggy, but it doesn’t hamper the pace of the song.
Consequence’s new mixtape, Movies On Demand 2, is in “coming soon” status, which hopefully translates into early 2011.
