Young Metro announces his retirement from Rap

Young Metro used Instagram to make a surprising announcement regarding his rap career.

Looks like Young Metro has had enough. 

 

The highly respected hip-hop producer recently announced he is "Retired from rap" via an Instagram story. The 24-year-old shared a picture of himself lounging on a jet with a bag of chips on his lap and pink background text stating his announcement. Young Metro also updated his bio to say "Retired from rap."

 

If the news are true, Metro will be remembered for behind some of the biggest platinum hip-hop tracks. He's worked on ILoveMakkonnen's Tuesday, Travis Scott's 3500, Drake and Future's Jumpman, Kanye West's Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1, and Migos' Bad and Boujee.

I think (and hope) this means retiring from “Just” rap and diversifying the resume by stepping into other genres. Really Metro just getting started, which is scary.

Young Metro followed up on the Instagram announcement by retweeting 21 Savage's response to the Young Metro's announcement "I think (and hope) this means retiring from “Just” rap and diversifying the resume by stepping into other genres. Really Metro just getting started, which is scary." This is the first Twitter acitvity he has shown since December 28th, 2017.

 

The surprising announcement should be taken with a grain of salt as he could be following the footsteps of faux retirees such as Jay Z. 

 

If Young Metro don't trust ya, but what if we don't trust Young Metro?
