Consequence - Sounds G.O.O.D. 2 Me
What’s that – Consequence is back with a brand new feature? And it’s a track off his his forthcoming pre-album mixtape? Sounds G.O.O.D. 2 Me! Corny intro aside, the follow-up to inaugural leak Childish Games (feat. Asher Roth) is a track that should sound good to just about everyone in the Booth. Here, Boston heavyweight Statik Selektah serves up a crowd-pleasing, sampled beat driven by chilled-out strings and swanky brass as the emcee expounds upon two of his favorite topics: money and women. OK, those are just about every rapper’s favorite topics, but Cons’ smooth delivery and knack for multi-layered, pop-referential punchlines (“Have a baby by me, baby might not get a mil, but I won’t do you the way Roc-A-Fella did Emile…”) sets SG2M apart from the pack. Cons TV, the Queens veteran’s long-awaited sophomore album, has yet to receive a solid release date from the label brass, but if you’re digging this smoothed-out banger, it’s a G.O.O.D. bet you’ll find a lot more to like on the emcee’s ...Movies on Demand mixtape, set to hit the ‘net late this month.
