Editorial Reviews

Consequence (The Queens native) is no new jack to the rap scene, as he's been in the game for over 10 years. Most may remember The Cons on his many appearances with Tribe Called Quest (Q-Tip is his cousin). Consequence appeared most notably on 1996's Beats, Rhymes & Life" album. Over the years Consequence has released a slew of mixtapes to keep his name on the streets and in 2004 released an album titled Take 'Em To The Cleaners on an indie label with moderate success. In 2005 Consequence released 2 more mixtapes (A Tribe Called Quence & The Cons Vol. 3 . The Comeback Kid). Consequence' hustle, grind and lyrical wordplay caught the ear of Kanye West who invited him to appear on the song (Spaceship) on his debut The College Dropou and invited him back again to appear on his current effort Late Registration. Consequence was also part of the Touch The Sky Tour that featured Kanye West, John Legend, Fantasia and more. Kanye officially brought Consequence into his G.O.O.D. Music (Getting Out Our Dreams) family, already boasting a roster of John Legend and Common, by signing him to the label. Cons is ready to go to the next level. Kanye West and Getting Out Our Dreams present Consequence.The new album Don't Quit Your Day Job is the latest release from Kanye West G.O.O.D Music label. Features the hot new single Callin' Me, Don't Forget Em & Grammy Family Cameos include Kanye West & John Legend.

4.0 out of 5 stars (3.5 Stars) Just A Little More Tweaking... June 26, 2007
Format:Audio CD
We finally get the chance to hear a real album by Queens own Consequence, the same guy that was plastered all over A Tribe Called Quest's album Beats, Rhymes and Life featuring his cousin Q-Tip. Sure, he had a mixtape album back in 2004 called Take 'Em to the Cleaners that few even knew existed. But this was easily the best time for Consequence to come out with his album considering Kanye had to prove himself as a mega-producer, artist, and business man. Once the foundation was created and Kanye started up G.O.O.D. Music, everything was a go for Consequence (his momma named him Dexter Raymond Mills, Jr.) to release his first official album titled Don't Quit Your Day Job. Without question, the production on a majority of the album was on par, so it all really came down to Consequence to deliver on his rhymes. "Callin' Me" is an decent track, but doesn't come close to the overall sound of Don't Quit Your Day Job. "Job Song" focuses on Dexter's thoughts on doing something bigger and better with music once he gets through the whole 'getting by' phase in his life. "Don't Forget Em" is easygoing song, stressing the importance of embracing your past and remembering what got you where you are today. "Uptown" has a good bounce to it, the respectable "The Good, The Bad, The Ugly" features mentor Kanye West, and the laid back "Feel This Way" features John Legend in rare form. "Disperse" is another standout cut that features Gangsta L Crisis (better known as GLC) and Really Doe, while "Who Knew My Luck Would Change" speaks to his thoughts that his career in music was bleak and nobody would ever check for him after all these years.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointment May 14, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I thought for sure Kanye West would give this the same time and hard work that he gave Common's BE. I was wrong.

The good the bad and the ugly has been out for 4 years already. Pay for the flight wasn't even on this CD. What a dissapointment! Grammy Family? Please! That was released last year already! Cons, do you think we are stupid? C'mon, man!

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid Album March 13, 2007
By Ty
Format:Audio CD
There are a few fillers here along with two re-released tracks, but all in all its a real GOOD, easy listen. People say Cons sounds like Kanye, but its actually the other way around, as Consequence is the artist who shaped and molded West into the rapper he is today.

Amazing production on this album, and it is a real solid major label debut for the veteran Queens rapper.

3.0 out of 5 stars Inconsequential {3 Stars} March 25, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Let me just say that this isn't a 2 star album, but it isn't a 5 star album either. While I agree that some of the production lacks punch, a lot of it is decent. Kanye handles the lionshare and he sets 'Quence up with some okay beats, but a lot of them are repetitive. Another problem is that there's no charisma on this joint -- 'Quence sounds bored on a lot of the tracks. You can't put a bored artist on repetitive beats and that's pretty much what this album attempts to do. When he pumps up the adrenaline, he pumps out some goood songs. "Don't Forget 'Em", "Who Knew My Luck Would Change", "Job Song", "Grammy Family", and "The Good The Bad The Ugly" are all tracks worth hearing. The trick is staying put long enough to get to these songs. I'll give him this much, he can ride beats very well. No matter how they sound. A lot of rappers today seem to have trouble with that.

As far as flaws go, there are a few joints that fell under skip material for me -- "Pretty Little Sexy Mama", "Disperse" (I forget the sample used here, but Cru used it on "Just Another Case" much better), "Uncle Rahiem", "Callin' Me" and quite a few others. Like most have already mentioned, "Feel This Way" sounds more like a John Legend song featuring 'Quence and "Night Night" is mad corny. Another beef I have with this LP, and most albums that Kanye releases, are the excessive, uneccesary, and stupid skits. They're wack. Also, the album begins to unravel somewhere toward the middle of it. You will find most of the skip material there.

Don't Quit Your Day Job is a decent release. It's weighed down by the amount of skip material, but the good songs are really good. It's not the worst thing you've ever heard, but it won't blow you away either.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hip-Hop is his Day Job. March 6, 2007
By Pablo
Format:Audio CD
A debut that was over a decade in the making. Now, admittedly, Consequence was never really in high-demand, so labeling this 'highly-anticipated' would be a bit far-fetched; however, being a dope emcee backed up by Kanye West, there were more than a few heads eagerly awaiting the release of Don't Quit Your Day Job. Unfortunately, most of those heads(including myself), will be a bit dissapointed with Consequence's debut here. It isn't that his rhymes aren't sharp, nor that the production isn't dope most of the times(it is lacking in certain spots, however); it's that most of these songs are just retreads. Or, perhaps more accurately, re-releases.

The only song that features 'Ye(well, only 'Ye) on this album is "The Good, The Bad, The Ugly." Honestly, one solo guest feature from 'Ye is dissapointing, but not enough to put a damper on the release; this IS supposed to be a Consequence album, so as long as that one song is dope, everything's cool, right? Well, it would be. But, this release has been circulating for well over FOUR YEARS. Before The College Dropout even dropped; that's a long-*** time, people. It isn't even one of those cuts that just HAS to be included, as it's average at best. If it was a bit more relevant, and less dated, it'd find a much better spot on this album; as it stands, it doesn't deserve a release on album that should be fresher than anything released thus far this year.

But that isn't the case. More tracks get the re-release treatment, most notably Grammy Family from DJ Khaled's mixtape of an album released last year. Now, granted, Grammy Family isn't nearly as out of place as the aforementioned track, but it also isn't as fresh as it should be. If the G.O.O.D.

I can't believe that I was so slow getting up on Consequence. The pedigree alone (ran with his cousin Q-tip, produced by Kanye) should have tipped me off. Read more
