Consequence Addresses Fallout Over Kanye West’s Anti-Semitism in New Song

Result released a new song, “Disappointed”, in which he continues to stand by Kanye West despite his recent string of antisemitic hate speech.

Speaking about the genesis of the track, Consequence detailed what he described as his reasoning for continuing to stand by Ye.

“My perspective is this…It’s easy to be selfish and ask for HELP from someone who is in a position to [power] to change the trajectory of your life,” he said in a statement shared with the song. “But what happens when things turn around and that person needs you? »

Lyrically, Consequence—which has made the headlines in recent months for similar statements – this perspective continues, at one point in the new rapping track “the whole label ran instead of getting Ye’s back”. This is an apparent reference to GOOD Music, a label that previously had Pusha T among its list of artists. Push was also president of the label for several years, although he resigned from this position.

Consequence previously addressed the breakup with Pusha, whom he called “Pharrell’s man,” in an interview with The art of dialogue it was job earlier this year.

“Does Pusha T have the right to distance himself from situations he does not want to be in? Yeah. He’s a man,” Consequence said. “Do these two have any behind-the-scenes grievances that aren’t talked about? Yes, they do. So some of that shit is a bit of a ceiling… All the shit from the president of GOOD Music, it’s a ceiling. It’s the ceiling… It hasn’t been this shit in years… Just say you’re crazy about Donda’s three-way party in Chicago, when he won’t let you on stage. Say that.

“Whether I agree with Kanye or not, that’s not the point of it… Pusha T told you all that street bullshit, right?” And now we do this industry shit? No,” Consequence said earlier in the interview.

In December last year, Ye praised Adolf Hitler during an appearance on the far-right conspiracy program Information wars. In the same interview, he also asserted his admiration and “love” for the Nazis, as well as falsely claiming that millions of people were not targeted and killed during the Holocaust. The latter is a frequent tactic of Holocaust denierswho falsely claim that the genocide did not take place or (just as falsely) claim that the death toll has been exaggerated.

While the appearance didn’t mark Ye’s first time espousing anti-Semitism, it ended up becoming the final straw for a number of public figures, fans and brands.
