It’s Christmas, a time to be cheerful and leave all the negative feelings in the past … and that’s exactly what former G.O.O.D. Music signee Consequence has done with his cousin/A Tribe Called Quest frontman Q-Tip.
According to MTV’s RapFix blog, Cons and Q-Tip have buried the hatchet after a beef that has gone on for sometime.
Cons confirmed rumors that the pair had reunited in a recent statement, accompanied by a photo of the two together with his newborn child.
“After a very intense & extensive meeting, Q-Tip & myself have resolved our public & private issues,” Consequence said in a statement. “With so many manufactured ‘beefs’ in hip-hop, this situation was very real and shows that their can be resolution through humility & dialogue.
“Check out this pic of us welcoming my son Caiden into our historic fold,” he concluded.
Back in May, the Queens rapper expressed his feelings toward Q-Tip — as well as Kanye West — saying both failed to support his music career.
“As a man, you can’t hang your fate on no other man, but when you think the man is your brother and you talk about every other single situation known to man, you would think it would dawn on somebody to say, ‘Hey, let me make sure this all right, let me make sure my guy is good.’ If I’m not your guy, that’s fine; let’s just have clarity on it,” Cons told MTV.
Although he severed ties with Ye, Cons also revealed that he has communicated with the Chicago rap star and patches things up via email.
“I hit him, and he hit me back with one of those all-caps tirades,” he said. “He was pissed and rightfully so. And I was pissed and that’s why things happened the way they happened. … He spoke his piece, I spoke my piece, and he told me he loved me. And the feud is over with Kanye.”
Earlier this month, Consequence dropped a new mixtape, titled Curb Certified, featuring 12 track. Download it here, via HulkShare.
