(AllHipHop News) Metro Boomin clearly trusted Kanye West enough to have his famous tag lace Ye’s “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1” off The Life Of Pablo. It appears the G.O.O.D. Music boss was interested in working even closer with the Atlanta-based producer.
In a new cover story for Fader, Metro recalled a phone call he had with Kanye. According to the 22-year-old St Louis native, Yeezus was interested in forming an official alliance with Young Metro.
The publication reports:
Metro recaps the conversation. “This n-gga ‘Ye was talking about a lotta sh-t. He said he was in some country I never heard of. I was like, ‘What you doing there?’ He’s like, ‘I’m in a IKEA.’” Also, he told Metro: “We really should do a production group together.”
By this, clearly, Metro is honored. But he’s also taken aback. Someone asks, politely: So’s Kanye trying to sign you? Metro scoffs at the thought. “Never. I’m a boss n-gga.”
Metro also addressed his place in the feud between two of the rappers he works with regularly – Future and Young Thug. The ATL representatives got into an online squabble in February which put Metro in the middle of the beef.
Yeah, it’s some crazy sh-t… You can’t have either one of them feel like you f-cking with the other one more than them. Either one of them would be offended. You gotta remain neutral as much as possible. It’s no bias. Atlanta, man—everybody’s a male, there’s a lot of ego. Somebody gotta be number one. Neither one of them are the type to settle for number two. I feel like they both motivate each other, and it’s good for the culture and the music—just as long as it stay at that.
