G.O.O.D. Music artist Consequence says he has another single coming soon. This one will be off his Cons TV album, tentatively slated for summer.
“We have one or two joints me and Q-Tip gotta tweak, and we should be putting out the first joint very soon,” he said. “Before Memorial Day, we should have the next single.”
Cons’ album is being produced by the unstoppable beat combination of Kanye West and Q-Tip . With his label CEO and legendary cousin on the boards, Consequence knows there is zero margin for error.
“You gotta work,” he said. “You gotta work even harder, because the expectations of what the records should come out to be are on a higher level now than when you’re working with upstart producers. [Working with a] Joe Schmo, there’s no expectations. They haven’t established a lineage, they haven’t established a track record for greatness. When you have Grammy winners and hip-hop legends doing your record, the records have to be at an unequivocal high. You have to rise to the occasion of what the project is. If you don’t, they are still going to be who they are, which is great pressure. You just gotta hit a jumper in somebody’s face. You can’t settle for the two; you gotta hit the three when the buzzer is about to go off.”
The Queens native said he kept his recording within the familiar confines of the Big Apple rather than going to Hawaii, where Kanye has been recording and producing for various other artists.
“Everything I did for my record was done in New York. Me and Kanye worked out here for my record, and me and Q-Tip are finishing up here as well,” he explained.
Consequence has the mixtape Movies on Demand out right now. The project features the single “Childish Games” which guest star Asher Roth.
