Metro Boomin to Throw ‘Young Metro Don’t Trust Trump’ Concert in November
Metro Boomin is super serious about making sure that Donald Trump doesn't get into the White House. So much so, that he's having a one night show at The Playstation Theater in New York City, called "Young Metro Don't Trust Trump."
Fader reports the concert is scheduled to take place on Nov. 4, four days before the general election. He recently spoke to Complex about his political inclinations and why he thinks it's so important to be active in the election process.
"You can still be cool, and you don't have to be scared to speak up about political issues. The kids don't really know that," the 22 year-old producer said.
Metro Boomin will donate the show's proceeds to a yearly scholarship fund which sends a student from the St. Louis area to Morehouse College.
Politics isn't the only thing Metro Boomin has been vocal about lately. He recently voiced his displeasure with the musical landscape and the ongoing streaming wars between big companies like Tidal and Apple Music.
“Just searched iTunes for 10 minutes for song cry by jay z and couldn’t find it, then searched 4 blueprint and remembered tidal vs apple,” Metro tweeted to his followers earlier this month. “This streaming war s— is so sus with all the exclusivity bulls—. Just let the kids have the music because that’s what it should be about.”
For now though, he's focused on the election season and making sure Trump doesn't move into the White House. Pre-sale tickets for the "Young Metro Don't Trust Trump" concert will be available here on Thurs. at 10 a.m. EST.
