As a member of Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music family, Pusha T recently came in Consequence’s crosshairs after he released the diss track “The Plagurist Society.” Speaking with 107.5 WGCI’s The Morning Riot (via FSD), the Clipse member addressed the controversy, taking light jabs at Cons.
After the show hosts said they would love to hear Pusha engage in a battle with Cons, he laughed off the prospect of putting it on wax. “Really? You’re like the first person to ever say that. I don’t ever think anyone’s wanted to see Consequence,” he jested. “Never no radio personality, DJ has ever said they want to hear Consequence!”
He also stated that he’s unsure if he will respond to the record, as there’s no upside to engaging in a rap battle.
“At the end of the day, I am an artist and this is sort of fun to me still. This whole rap thing is sort of fun to me, so I won’t say you won’t hear nothing. But a go-back-and-forth between me and him, it’s not right. You can’t get anything out of it,” he continued. “People are disrespectful. What can you say? ‘Ye is a great guy. He’s done a lot for me, he’s done a lot for everybody. He’s ever embraced in this music game, he tries his hardest for everybody.”
Pusha T Says “Nobody’s Ever Checked For” Consequence’s Music
In another interview given today, Pusha T continues to address Consequence's shots at him and his G.O.O.D. Music family. "To me, as it stands right now, it’s so funny," he told 107.5 WCGI's DJ MoonDawg (via FSD). "Me and ‘Ye have never talked about it. Never, not once. That in itself should just tell you how serious it is. It’s really not. But it’s not an inside thing because he’s not inside. He’s outside."
He also echoed earlier sentiments that he wouldn't hesitate to fire back shots if he felt inspired. "I’m just an artist, so I have fun. When I write, I write from my soul. If it happened to come up in my mind and it made good sense and it felt right, I might. But it’s not like a back and forth thing because it doesn’t do anything for me because the stuff he does isn’t good, to me," he said. I don’t think you’ve ever been checking for it in your life. Nobody’s ever checked for it."
