The early days of G.O.O.D. Music were headlined by releases from the likes of Common, John Legend, and Consequence. Kanye West made a name for himself as the most-unique rapper in the game. His record label was a roster full of misfits, which is what made them successful.
Kanye West became more focused on G.O.O.D. Music when his longtime label, Roc-A-Fella Records, folded. West began searching for additional talent and developing them. Among the new artists signed during this period was Big Sean. Last summer, Pusha T was also added to the roster.
The addition of Pusha T is what would push Consequence over the edge. Cons made it clear he had issues with Pusha T, despite Pusha having no issues with him. Acknowledging their past friendship, Consequence said his lyrics were stolen by Pusha T. Despite the accusations, Pusha T denied them and said he and Cons were still friends. This led to Consequence announcing his departure from G.O.O.D. Music and Kanye West denying it.
Consequence said he was going to lead a lyrical assault against G.O.O.D. Music. Yesterday, the first diss record, "The Plagurist Society" was released. In the song, he questions Pusha T's cocaine dealer lines and rapped of his background in New York City. Towards the end of the song, Consequence announced he was going after Kanye West on the next diss record.
