Whilst the two “1st Time” collaborators battled it out in their IG responses, Talib Kweli strike up his own Instagram web site with the same screenshot that Consequence posted,

“So wait around, @constv, you see racist trolls making an attempt to weaponize you from me and in its place of contacting that bullshit out, you falsely accuse me of ‘internet thuggin’ all because I said that I’m not frightened of you?” wrote Kweli. “That tells me that your objective was to frighten me.

I did not inquire any individual to e mail you and frankly, I’m upset that my group despatched this email simply because you are not welcome on my demonstrate. Your have Queens people today do not fuck with you. Me having you on my display would have me wanting sus.

Even though Disadvantages ongoing to toss photographs at Talib, the “Get By” rhymer hit up Instagram yet again, this time, executing some clowning of his possess aimed specifically at Consequence. Kweli posted a screenshot of a headline that reads, “Consequence Apologizes to Drake Right after Receiving Associated in Kanye Feud and Dissing Toronto Rapper on Tune.” He captioned the picture by tagging Consequence’s IG account accompanied with, “Sorry ass nigga.”

Consequence’s subsequent shot at Talib on IG arrived in the type of a clip from an episode of N.O.R.E.’s Drink Champs podcast, in the course of which Dave Chapelle and Talib Kweli were guests. In the post’s caption, Drawbacks implied that Chappelle, N.O.R.E and Yasiin Bey built a laughingstock of the famous Brooklyn rhymer as it pertained to the topic of an job interview with Kanye West.

“Let us be apparent, [Talib Kweli] is the amount 1 punk on the planet,” he wrote. “You let [Dave Chappelle] do a whole Chappelle exhibit skit about how Ye fried you on Drink Champs to your experience. You will not have no satisfaction. You you should not have no dignity. You you should not have no self-respect. You a fucking chicken. [Dave Chappelle] laughed at you to your confront, [Yasiin Bey] laughed at you to your confront (and tried using to slide by stating ‘Let me get my foods,’ cuz he knew it was coming). [N.O.R.E] laughed at you to your deal with then seen out on some Queens shit. You even laughed at you just to save face, you know why? Cuz you a dick rider who wont get off the dick coaster and you from Brooklyn? Get the fuck outta [here]. Nigga, you a park slope nigga. I am the a single. Queens get the revenue.”

The wild again and forth involving Talib Kweli and Consequence arrives much less than 24 several hours immediately after Cons publicly supported his longtime buddy and collaborator, Kanye West. On Tuesday (Oct. 25), the Queens MC strike up Twitter to enable it be regarded that in spite of all of Ye’s the latest responses, he even now finally stands with the controversial rapper-producer.

“I have stood with YE for 20 yrs and have usually had his back He have confidence in me a lot more than Any person Element of that is observing issues for what they are No matter whether G.O.O.D. or Lousy Then from there generating guaranteed WE are going in the appropriate path. I stated what I reported…”

On the flip facet, Talib Kweli has been really vocal in his stance versus Kanye West’s antics, precisely with regards to the aforementioned “White Life Issue” t-shirt and the fallout that adopted Ye’s interview on Consume Champs earlier this thirty day period. In a viral Instagram write-up on Oct. 19, the Black Star rhymer known as out Kanye directly, conveying that in his viewpoint, the appropriate to independence of speech will not imply Ye shouldn’t be held accountable for his steps.

“[Kanye West], bro you not a very good close friend to [N.O.R.E], stop the [cap],” wrote Kweli along with a video clip clip of Ye defending the Drink Champs host. “You referred to as N.O.R.E. for the reason that he the only 1 who would permit you occur on soon after The Shop shelved you mainly because you was screaming, ‘White Lives Matter’ (a nazi phrase) at anyone through that taping. You know for a point [Drink Champs] is not a political demonstrate but you went there to regurgitate lies about Black people today from [Candace Owens], who is a political talking head. You basically wore a ‘2024’ hat, basically asserting your political aspirations. You took benefit of N.O.R.E, an individual who was providing you the reward of the doubt, for your possess political achieve. And now you have jeopardized his display and designed the family members of the victims of racist police brutality want to sue you. And I don’t wanna listen to shit about totally free speech because you purchased Parler. Independence of speech ain’t independence from implications. You use your totally free speech to assistance anti-Black rhetoric and persons. I use mine to contact that out. N.O.R.E was proper to apologize. Mainly because that is what first rate people today do when they fuck up. Be decent, Ye.”

Equally Consequence and Talib Kweli’s feedback stem from the present media firestorm Kanye West has been dealing with ever considering the fact that the Donda rapper-turned-vogue designer sported the now-notorious “White Lives Make a difference” shirt on Oct. 3. In the aftermath that followed the questionable fashion option, Ye continued to insert to the controversy by means of anti-Semitic opinions and claims that George Floyd died from Fentanyl usage relatively than being murdered by former police officer Derek Chauvin.

Given that then, Kanye West’s outbursts have found the Yeezy creator remaining called out by corporations this kind of as the American Jewish Committee and have resulted in the cancelation of several valuable partnerships from the likes of Adidas, Balenciaga and Def Jam. Ye is also likely facing a $250 million defamation lawsuit, which the spouse and children of George Floyd states they intend to pursue.
