Metro Boomin’ definitely doesn’t trust the Artist Partner Group after he went on a lengthy Twitter rant early Wednesday morning (Oct. 18) to slam the label regarding his past dealings. During the barrage of tweets, other producers such as Mike WiLL Made-It and London On Da Track chimed in on their time with the Atlantic Records division as well.
Metro caught wind of a PSA that went out to Atlanta producers via Twitter that promised a meeting with an A&R rep from Atlantic Records.
This sparked Metro to explain why producers should steer clear of the call and called out APG label chief Mike Caren by name, somewhat taking the heat primarily off of Atlantic Records. He did make certain to give Atlantic Records executives Dallas Martin, Orlando Wharton, and Larne Gaba props for helping producers get their fair share.
Metro wasn’t alone in his distaste for the way APG has been handling things with Cardo, Dough Boy, the aforementioned Mike WiLL Made-It and many others adding their commentary. There were some people who also defended APG and Caren from the Twitter jabs Metro rained down. We’ve collected much of what we could find, including Metro Boomin’s initial tweets on the matter, below and on the following pages.
