Rapper Consequence has come forward to speak about the recent issues with the Clipse's own Pusha T. Consequence said earlier this week that Pusha T used (stole, copied, whatever term you want to insert) a lyric of his from the "Last Supper" track.
"I had a record called 'Last Supper' that Kanye [West] wanted me to get
Pusha to do a verse on when 'everything was everything,'" Cons explained
in an interview. "So naturally I gave him my record, him being at the
time my labelmate. Not to mention, I've known Pusha longer than I've
known Kanye, for the record…['My God''s] beat is good, the first
verse, cool. [I thought], 'He's doing his Pusha thing, word!' So we get
through to the second verse and I hear 'It's the last supper for you
n*ggas, just the picture repainted.' So I'm like, hold up, my record had
went, 'Cudi got the kids, Cons got the streets, 'Ye got the globe, so
we all going to eat/it's the last supper for you motherf*ckers, I don't
make a promise I can't keep.'" (Karma Loop TV)
When confronted by accusations from Consequence, The Clipse long-time member not only denied it but was shocked by the claims.
"He said that I stole his lines? Wow. Nah, I haven't really heard much about it. Everyone who's been hitting me up has been telling me how crazy this song is. I don't know. I mean, I haven't taken anything from Consequence, or anybody else, for that matter. Just for the record. I've been in the studio with Cons, and we've talked, and numerous days we've laughed, and…I don't know. I missed that one. The way I've got to look at it now: I don't even know if that's for me. I can't even believe anything like that's for me, very honestly. I mean, until, you know, he told me something like that. I don't know what everybody else has got going on, but 'My God' is an awesome record. [Laughs.]" (Complex)
