Analysis: If you miss Kanye West’s College Dropout days, listen to Consequence. The man raps with almost the exact same cadence and delivery, picks similar beats, and has just enough of a good ill-to-lame ratio in his punchlines to compare to West. My warning however, is don’t listen unless you feel like going backwards into 2004 again. Nothing on Cons’ latest mixtape feels fresh; everything sounds like well-preserved leftovers from that benchmark year in hip hop. It’s a rare project where the artist’s skills are in check, and the beats aren’t terrible, but I still felt bored and anxious for something new while listening. That ‘Whatever U Want’ song is still really dope, though.
