Metro Boomin is a sought-after producer, crafting hit records for some of the biggest names in the game and creating his own catalog in the process. At the age of 24, the St. Louis native has already experienced many things in his short career, and he took to social media yesterday (October 18) to share a warning with up-and-coming beatmakers in the game.
A Twitter user by the name of @NoahXZark shared a screenshot calling out to Atlanta-based producers saying that A&Rs from Atlantic Records are having a meeting in the area and are looking for new talent. Metro retweeted the initial post adding his own thoughts on the label, tweeting “PSA to producers everywhere, don’t let @AtlanticRecords steal your soul.”
Metro continued the thread, writing that he specifically meant the label’s Artist Partner Group, APG, and its head Mike Caren. He also mentioned several Atlantic Records staffers who “do great business and wanna help [producers] win.” To make matters worse for the label, several other big time producers posted about their encounters with Caren, including Mike Will Made It, London On The Track, and DJ Folk.
At press time, there has been no response from Caren or other representatives from APG.
