While the two “1st Time” collaborators battled it out in their IG feedback, Talib Kweli hit up his personal Instagram webpage with the same screenshot that Consequence posted,

“So wait, @constv, you see racist trolls hoping to weaponize you versus me and as a substitute of calling that bullshit out, you falsely accuse me of ‘internet thuggin’ all due to the fact I mentioned that I am not frightened of you?” wrote Kweli. “That tells me that your objective was to frighten me. Let us be crystal clear. I am not frightened of you at all. No person is. Now to be even far more distinct, I failed to approve this check with simply because I have no drive to interview [you] at all. I didn’t ask anyone to electronic mail you and frankly, I am upset that my group sent this e-mail for the reason that you are not welcome on my present. Your own Queens people do not fuck with you. Me having you on my display would have me hunting sus. Speaking of sus, why have you unsuccessful to contact out [Kanye West’s] anti-Black Nazi ass rhetoric?”

From there, the beef concerning the two renowned rhymers continued in the remarks segment with Consequence the moment once again dragging Yasiin Bey into the fray.

“Nobody pressured me to do absolutely nothing and no person ever will,” wrote Consequence in a comment aimed at Talib. “I’m not you wherever I faux it in human being then start typing to just take a position.

Consequence’s following shot at Talib on IG arrived in the type of a clip from an episode of N.O.R.E.’s Consume Champs podcast, during which Dave Chapelle and Talib Kweli had been friends. In the post’s caption, Downsides implied that Chappelle, N.O.R.E and Yasiin Bey manufactured a laughingstock of the legendary Brooklyn rhymer as it pertained to the subject matter of an job interview with Kanye West.

“Let’s be apparent, [Talib Kweli] is the variety one particular punk on the world,” he wrote. “You let [Dave Chappelle] do a entire Chappelle exhibit skit about how Ye fried you on Consume Champs to your face.

[Dave Chappelle] laughed at you to your confront, [Yasiin Bey] laughed at you to your experience (and attempted to slide by saying ‘Let me get my foodstuff,’ cuz he knew it was coming). [N.O.R.E] laughed at you to your experience 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’m the one. Queens get the dollars.”

The wild back and forth in between Talib Kweli and Consequence arrives less than 24 hrs immediately after Cons publicly supported his longtime buddy and collaborator, Kanye West. On Tuesday (Oct. 25), the Queens MC strike up Twitter to allow it be known that even with all of Ye’s latest feedback, he however ultimately stands with the controversial rapper-producer.

“I have stood with YE for 20 yrs and have normally had his back He trust me a lot more than Any one Section of that is looking at items for what they are Irrespective of whether G.O.O.D. or Terrible Then from there producing guaranteed WE are shifting in the right route. I explained what I mentioned…”

On the flip facet, Talib Kweli has been incredibly vocal in his stance against Kanye West’s antics, precisely about the aforementioned “White Lives Issue” t-shirt and the fallout that followed Ye’s job interview on Consume Champs earlier this month. In a viral Instagram post on Oct. 19, the Black Star rhymer named out Kanye instantly, explaining that in his impression, the proper to flexibility of speech will not suggest Ye should not be held accountable for his actions.

“[Kanye West], bro you not a excellent mate to [N.O.R.E], stop the [cap],” wrote Kweli alongside with a movie clip of Ye defending the Drink Champs host. “You referred to as N.O.R.E. since he the only one who would allow you come on immediately after The Store shelved you for the reason that you was screaming, ‘White Lives Matter’ (a nazi phrase) at absolutely everyone for the duration of that taping. You know for a fact [Drink Champs] is not a political exhibit but you went there to regurgitate lies about Black men and women from [Candace Owens], who is a political chatting head. You actually wore a ‘2024’ hat, fundamentally asserting your political aspirations. You took advantage of N.O.R.E, a person who was giving you the reward of the question, for your have political gain. And now you have jeopardized his clearly show and created the people of the victims of racist police brutality want to sue you. And I do not wanna hear shit about free speech since you purchased Parler. Freedom of speech ain’t freedom from outcomes. You use your no cost speech to assistance anti-Black rhetoric and people. I use mine to get in touch with that out. N.O.R.E was suitable to apologize. Due to the fact that’s what first rate people today do when they fuck up. Be respectable, Ye.”
