Metro Boomin Blasts 21 Savage For 5th Grade Spelling Bee Story: “Lookin’ For A Lie To Tell”

21 Savage

Metro Boomin didn’t have to do 21 Savage like that.

Metro Boomin isn’t convinced that the grade school claim to fame 21 Savage recently gushed about in an interview actually occurred the way he recounted it.

On Wednesday (January 24), the multi-platinum producer trolled his frequent collaborator by reposting a clip from his conversation with Shannon Sharpe for his Club Shay Shay podcast. In particular, Metro appeared to take issue with 21’s claim that he won both his school-wide spelling bee and math competitions in fifth grade.

“We was just talking about this last night,” 21 Savage said. “We was playing the game, and they was like, ‘Umm spell supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,’ and it was crazy because I won the spelling bee in fifth grade spelling that same word, and I won the math competition that same year too.”

Metro Boomin actually called 21 out about the claim in a video response of his own, which he shared in a tweet he wrote, “Knowledge is power.”

Metro further criticized 21 Savage in the caption: “You probably read 3000 books a year too huh @21savage,” before ripping into him in the video he shared.

”Salute Uncle Shay Shay on the podcast man, but, n###as sit on his couch and just feel like they could say anything,” he said. “Look at this n###a just looking, lookin’ for a lie to tell—look at this,” he said in the clip. This n###a Sid he won the spelling bee in fifth grad spelling supercalifragalisticexpialadoscious.”
