There is no moral high horse left with the news that rapper Consequence wrote some of Kanye West's raps/
This sorta stuff is as old as rock and roll. None of the Chess records musicians till Howling Wolf howled got credit for the songs they wrote. DJ Alan Freed got a credit on Buddy holly songs. Presley on r&b classics he re-recorded. Richards and Jagger stole "Sway" off Mick Taylor… Jay-Z used to write Piddy's raps…
But nobody thought Diddy could rap. West can't sing and can't play an instrument, why was he having Consequence do his work for him.
Consequence said to MTV on RapFixLive: "It is true I participated in writing with Kanye. You could read it on credits on 808s and Heartbreaks, College Dropout. Every album that he's had, I've been involved from a creative aspect in writing of songs," Cons said. "Check the credits, I get that publishing."
Fair enough but then he added this:
"One record that I never got credit for which always stuck out in my mind was that I helped out with some of the rhymes from 'Champion,' " Cons said of the 2007 song that appeared 'Ye's Graduation LP. The line in question: "We were sorta like Will Smith and his son/ In the movie; I ain't talkin' about the rich one." "That was my brain thought," Cons said of the rhymes. "I mean, there's a lot of joints [that were not credited]."
This comes about because after West's Taylor Swift debacle, West went into hiding and left Consequence hanging with an album stuck in limbo.
No comment yet from West.
