In his The Art of Dialogue interview, Consequence addressed J. Cole’s 2016 “False Prophets” track, that took aim at Kanye West.
Consequence says he could have signed J. Cole if he wanted to.
“Whatever prompted J. Cole to write [“False Prophets”] and it touched him spirit wise in that way. When he was trying to get on, it wasn’t no “False Prophets” then. It was how do I get to the profit margin?” he explained.
On the track, Cole raps: “He tell us he a genius but it’s clearer lately/It’s been hard for him to look into the mirror lately. There was a time when this n-gga was my hero maybe/That’s why his fall from grace is hard to take. Cause I believed him when he said his sh-t was purer and he the type of n-gga swear he real but all around is fake.“
He continued, “I could’ve signed J. Cole but we was transitioning from out of Sony. J. Cole used to go to St. John’s. Myself, B. Dot from Rap Radar, we all went to the same barber shop. They played me [his music] and I met him, he was cool. I just wasn’t in the frame of mind to do it.”
Did Consequence miss out by not signing J. Cole?
