Kanye West — Talib Kweli & Consequence Get Into Heated Dispute Over Opposing Views On Rapper’s Controversial Actions
Kanye West’s recent remarks and behavior is not only causing a fall-out between him and corporate America, but with others in the industry as well.
Rappers Talib Kweli and Consequence (real name Dexter Raymond Mills Jr.) shared words across social media on Wednesday, Oct. 26. The back and forth came not long after Consequence made it clear that he’s standing with Kanye West, someone he’s been friends with for years. He said,
“I’ve stood with YE for 20 years and have always had his back / He trust me more than ANYBODY / Part of that is seeing things for what they are / Whether G.O.O.D. or Bad / Then from there making sure WE are moving in the right direction. / I said what I said… / It’s what needs to be said / Queens Get The Money”
Then, the “The Good, the Bad, the Ugly” rapper shared a post that included a screengrab of a request for him to appear on People’s Party Podcast w/ Talib Kweli. While he’s down to do interviews, Consequence made it known that he’s not really here for Talib Kweli’s backtracking and “trading integrity for clout.”
In response, Talib Kweli reshared Consequence’s post and questioned why he hasn’t called out his “friend” for his controversial antisemitic remarks that have placed him at the center of several lost business deals and endorsements.
“So wait @constv you see racist trolls trying to weaponize you against me and instead of calling that bullshit out, you falsely accuse me of “internet thuggin” all because I stated that I’m not frightened of you? That tells me that your goal was to frighten me. Let’s be clear. I’m not scared of you at all. Nobody is. Now to be even more clear, I didn’t approve this ask because I have no desire to interview at all. I didn’t ask anyone to email you and frankly I’m upset that my team sent this email because you are not welcome on my show. Your own queens people don’t fu*ck with you. Me having you on my show would have me looking sus. Speaking of sus, why have you failed to call out @kanyewest anti black nazi a*s rhetoric?”
In a separate post, Kweli called Consequence a
“sorry a*s ni**a”
And the debate wasn’t limited to just Instagram. Consequence also sent a few not-so-nice messages in Talib Kweli’s direction on Twitter. In one tweet he made it known that:
“It’s Talib Kweli Day on my IG Page today Ima FRY THIS B*TCH A*S NI**A”
