Kanye West and Consequence have been friends for over 15 years. Despite their differences (Cons split from G.O.O.D. Music in 2011 on bad terms), their relationship has withstood every storm. So it’s no surprise that he is firing back with a new diss song called “Party Time.”
The song was released on Saturday night (September 4), hours after Drake leaked the Kanye West and André 3000 collaboration “Life Of The Party,”.
In the first minute, Consequence makes a slick allusion to Pusha T’s seething Drake diss in which he claimed that OVO boss had fathered a kid with ex-soft porn actress Sophie Brassaux. He also accused him of shamelessly pursuing Kanye West’s wife, Kim Kardashian.
“You might as well say you’ll take the next man’s life,”
“Cause that’s the dark place that makes most men fight
But from the outside, a person can tell
You going through your own personal hell
Your parents out here like Sonya and Dell
And ever since Sophie had a story to tell
You been taking Ls and coming out the cage
And thought we couldn’t tell you were coming after K.”
Last month, a purported feud between Drake and Kanye West was reignited when Trippie Redd’s song “Betrayal” featured Drake throwing a few shot at Kanye. From there, it became more petty, with Kanye posting Drake’s Toronto address on social media and Drake giggling hysterically as he mocked himself.
But it took a step up when Drake leaked the “Life Of The Party” track, an outtake from Donda. It prompted André 3000, who rarely communicates on social media, to react and explain why it wasn’t included in the final album.
“A few weeks ago Kanye reached out about me being a part of the Donda album,” he wrote. “I was inspired by his idea to make a musical tribute to his mom. It felt appropriate to me to support the Donda concept by referencing my own mother, who passed away in 2013. We both share that loss.
“I thought it was a beautiful choice to make a clean album but, unfortunately, I didn’t know that was the plan before I wrote and recorded my verse. It was clear to me that an edited ‘clean’ format of the verse would not work without having the raw, original also available. “So, sadly, I had to be omitted from the original album release.”
He called it “unfortunate” that it was leaked just as Kanye West and Drake were squabbling, but he said he’d be open to collaborating with both artists in the future, as well as Lil Baby, Tyler, The Creator, and JAY-Z.
