Consequence Reveals Lupus Diagnosis: 'I Have What J Dilla Had & What Phife [Dawg] Had As A Combo Happy Meal'

The Tribe Called Quest affiliate touched on his health, Kanye West and Q-Tip during the 'Things Are Different Now' listening party."

Exclusive – Consequence held an album listening party via Zoom for his forthcoming Things Are Different Now EP on Monday (September 28). At the top of the event, the A Tribe Called Quest affiliate (and Q-Tip’s cousin) revealed he’d been diagnosed with the autoimmune disorder lupus in June.

At first, Cons — who already had Type II diabetes — says he couldn’t figure out what was going on with his health and feared it was COVID-19. But instead, he was told he had the same disease the legendary producer J Dilla battled prior to his 2006 death..centered-ad {

As Cons noted during the listening event, it’s “God’s will” he’s still here and he had to find a way to pick himself up off the couch and “get back to being Consequence.” His 9-year-old son Caiden Mills, who appears on the song “Together,” encouraged Cons to keep going.

“He’s really my blessing from God,” he told HipHopDX. “When it got stupid for me, he was right here like, ‘Yo, come on, you just gotta get your muscles back. Come on daddy, you can do it.’ He’s my little superstar … he definitely re-charged the Tesla for me.”
