Kanye West took a backseat production role on former GOOD Music affiliate Consequence’s anthem to independence ‘On My Own’, letting the one-time A Tribe Called Quest rapper take his moment to shine on the just-surfaced track, which will feature on Consequence’s upcoming mixtape ‘MOD 3′.
Considering it was recorded over a year ago, some time before Consequence’s well-publicized split from the GOOD family he originally co-founded with Kanye, the tone of ‘On My Own’ is oddly prescient. “I can do it on my own/ I don’t have to listen to your lies/ I been moving on my own for some time now/ So I gotta say goodbye”, sings fellow autonomous mover Kid Cudi on the chorus, reflecting the same independent sentiment as in Consequence’s defiant verse lyrics, not to mention this recent tweet: “In a world where we all seek validation from OTHERS, Me & Cudi make the anthem for those who dare to say I can do it”.
