Metro Boomin Explains The Origins Of “If Young Metro Don’t Trust You..”

At this point, we all know what gon happen if Young Metro don’t trust you. Metro Boomin’s production on Kanye West’s “Father Stretch My Hands pt. 1” from The Life Of Pablo became iconic for the line that’s inspired everything from photoshopped tweets to memes to full-blown works of art, and this past Saturday (March 12), Metro explained exactly where it came from.

“I’ve been using that as a tag in beats since, like, August,” he explains at the 4:15 mark of an interview with DJ Drama on #StreetzIsWatching. Metro and Future had worked on a song with Uncle Murda where the line was first uttered, “but in a different tone.” The one that the world knows and loves was said in a more muted tone, so Metro went back to the session, grabbed it, and has been using it ever since.

He also cleared the air on circulating tweets that say he doesn’t trust Donald Trump or Ciara, both of which he says were photoshopped.
