Metro Boomin isn’t too excited about the current state hip-hop. In a brief post to his Instagram stories, the Atlanta superproducer expressed his discontent with new music today.
“I be hearing new music all the time and just be sitting there like,” he penned before inserting an emoji with a straight face. “Ni–as either don’t really care anymore or I’m just getting old.”
Interestingly enough, his comments arrived this weekend at the tail end a number drops from some hip-hop’s biggest names. Nonetheless, Metro will soon find himself injecting his own originality after returning at the forefront a few high-prile projects. Currently, he’s working with Lil Durk on a collaborative No Auto Durk project that will find the Chicago emcee resorting to the same flow popularized on his track the same name.
In addition, Metro has also reportedly been hard at work with 21 Savage on Savage Mode 2. The duo first dropped its predecessor in 2016, housing breakouts such as “No Heart” and the Future-assisted “X.”
They reprised the role by adding Offset to the mix with 2017’s Without Warning. However, Savage Mode notably made room for no features outside Future’s guest appearance. In the interest sticking to formulas, it will be interesting to see what 21 and Metro cook up as a unit this time around.
