(New York, NY) - While the world has been patiently awaiting the
release of
his commercial debut, Consequence will once again appease his core fans
with
the innovative re-mixtape cd entitled A Tribe Called Quence
1995-2004.
For me ATCQuence is not just a Mix tape, it's an audio photo album!,
Quence states emphatically of the conceptual piece that allows the
revisionist to venture back into the golden era of hip hop while
simultaneously looking into hip hops future. When I was sending out
the
acappellas to all the different producers who worked on the project, I
couldn't help but think back to the good times I had recording with
Tip,Phife & Ali, reminisces Cons. Separating this project from the
rest of
the mixtapes on the market is the exercise in creativity by all
involved,
specifically the producers, as it was the daredevil, genre redefining
musicianship that set A Tribe Called Quest apart. States Cons, Im
blessed
because there were so many producers willing to lend there time &
expertise
because they knew the importance & impact that this project would
have.
Expounding on the point is contributing boardsmith and longtime
collaborator
88 Keys who adds, It was a great opportunity to have worked with
'Quence
back in the day and an even greater opportunity to work with him now.
Touching on his classics was like a dream come true.


For those unfamiliar with Consequences storied past, while still a
high
school student, he became a protg of one of the most creative musical
forces ever assembled, A Tribe Called Quest. Since entering the fold
in
1996 on the Beats,Rhymes and Life album, Consequence had managed to
leave
his imprint on the groups legacy. In the years to follow, Consequence
worked diligently on his craft, establishing his identity as an emcee
separate from A Tribe Called Quest. The prolific artist emerged with
several
mixtapes: The Cons Vol. 1: All Sales Are Final , The Cons Vol. 2: Make
the
Game Come to You and Take Em To The Cleaners as well as a
scene-stealing
verse on Spaceship from the Kanye West multi platinum cd The College
Dropout. Those stellar works has led us to where we are now; with
Consequence using summer 2005 as a spring board to stardom. With hot
verses
about to sprout on features with Andre 3000 on the Q-Tip single
Sexy,
Kanye West and Camron on Gone from the highly anticipated Late
Registration and his lead single Clockin My Style laying the
perfect
foundation for his GOOD Music/ Sony debut Dont Quit Your Day Job,
its
imperative that you take your journey with Consequence from the very
beginning. A Tribe Called Quence is the jumpoff.
