Metro Boomin Responds To Drake Amid Alleged Beef
Metro Boomin and Drake’s beef is still ongoing as the Grammy-nominated producer is firing shots right back at Drake after the rapper’s latest video.
During a livestream over the weekend for Stake, an online casino that Drake is a spokesperson for, he seemingly came for the Heroes & Villains creator.
“To the rest of you — the non-believers, the underachievers, the tweet and deleters — you guys make me sick to my stomach, fam,” Drizzy said in the video. “Look at my eyes — you guys wanna do something? That’s what I thought.”
The part where Drake says “tweet and deleters,” fans believe that he is referring to Metro deleting his tweet about him which started the beed.
Metro Boomin Responds To Drake’s Video
On X (formerly known as Twitter), Metro responded to Drake on Monday (Dec. 18) by reposting the “Whoa, Calm Down Jamal, Don’t Pull Out the 9” video. The video is a skit about Black people interacting with racist white people (who are played by Black people) on a basketball court. When a joke is heard off camera, one of the Black actors portraying a white person delivers the line: “Whoa, calm down, Jamal, don’t pull out the 9.” “The “9” refers to a 9mm gun.
How Drake & Metro Boomin’s Beef Got Started
In a since-deleted tweet, Metro responded to a tweet that was comparing the streaming numbers of Her Loss and his 2022 album Heroes & Villains. According to the tweet, Heroes & Villains has twice the amount of streaming numbers daily compared to Her Loss. In addition, the tweet claimed that Heroes & Villains had the most streams (3.7 billion) of any other rap album since 2018. Looking at the data behind Heroes & Villians seemingly struck a nerve with the producer, prompting him to tweet.
“Yet Her Loss keeps winning rap album of the year over H&V,” Metro wrote in a since-deleted tweet. “Proof that award shows are just politics and not for me. Idc about awards honestly, the true award and REWARD is knowing that the music I spend so much time on brings joy to people’s everyday lives.”
Drake also unfollowed Metro on Instagram following the alleged beef.
