“Petty energy ain’t it for 2022,” wrote Consequence, who shared his apology on Instagram alongside a message from Drake’s right-hand man Noah ‘40’ Shebib dated Nov, 2016. “A few years ago, Drake had Ye & I over to cook up n catch a vibe. As an OG. I owe @champagnepapi an apology for letting the competition over the LP’s spiral out of control. Pardon me for whatever was said about you or your loved ones. Keep doing you bro.”
The message from 40 sees the producer tell Consequence how he’s one of his “favorite rappers ever,” to which he replied that he’d love to “build with you and Drake.”
On Drake and Trippie Redd’s song “Betrayal,” which dropped last year, Consequence addressed lyrics on the song that many believe are shots at Ye and Pusha-T. "All these fools I’m beefin’ that I barely know / Forty-five, forty-four (Burned out), let it go / Ye ain’t changin’ shit for me, it’s set in stone,” Drake raps on the track. Consequence, when he caught wind of the diss, implied that Drizz was being disrespectful. “Respect my team,” wrote Consequence in a response.
He later unleashed a diss track entitled “Party Time,” which saw him go after the OVO Sound founder. “One trip with Trippie left you drippin’ red/Infrareds pointed at your cranium," raps Consequence. “Who told Aubs that he can play with them? / That boy Cons can run the fade with them / I wish we could shoot five instead of group chats / Next time bring Chubbs when you shoot back.”
Not long after that, Ye and Drake squashed their beef and met in person. They later hosted a live ‘Free Larry Hoover’ benefit concert in Los Angeles.
