This weeks Unknown Artist of the Week is American rapper Consequence. Consequence was brought up, raised and started his career in Queens, New York. He has put out his first album this past year entitled, "Don't Quit Your Day Job." His 2007 release, on March 6th, wasas a pretty good debut album in my opinion. He has produced ton of music with other artists in the Hip-Hop/Rap industry, some of whom you probably know: Kanye West, A Tribe Called Quest, Talib Kweli, and DJ Kahled. His latest album was produced by GOOD Music, and sold 7,490 units in week one. Here is the review that I am making for his March 6th release, "Don't Quit Your Day Job."

On March 6, 2007, Consequence came out with his first solo album entitled, "Don't Quit Your Day Job!" It is a pretty solid album and the tunes are solid. If I had to compare him to a more "well known" rapper, it would be like a Talib Kweli or Kanye West. The way his lyrics flow, and the way his beats come out of your speakers, you can swear that you are listening to one of them! Very solid album, even though it came out this year and has been out since March 6th, i highly suggest you go out and buy this album! If you don't feel like going out and buying the album because you have no idea what he is singing and what he sounds like, then go on his myspace and listen to some of his tunes.
