Things went left when Metro Boomin asked Akademiks to stop posting about him on Instagram.

Akademiks added Metro Boomin to his tallying list of enemies in hip-hop. We’ve seen him go toe-to-toe in social media warfare against Freddie Gibbs and Ebro. Meanwhile, figures like Lil Baby have remained targets on his list. Most recently, he and Blueface have been going back and forth on the ‘Gram. The two proposed to take it to a boxing ring, though Akademiks said that he needs six to seven months to prepare. In response, Blueface predicted that Akademiks will fall off within the same window of time.

Last night, Akademiks shared a screenshot of one of Metro’s tweets that included lyrics from Kendrick Lamar’s “Rich Spirit.” The tweet appeared to be a subtle response to Hit-Boy’s call out from his collab with The Alchemist, “Slipping Into Darkness.” Metro slipped into the comment section of Akademiks’ post to ask one final time if he could refrain from posting anything about him on his Instagram page. “Hey I’m politely asking 1 more time that you please not post me or anything to do with me on this page. Thanks! [handshake emoji],” he wrote under Akademiks post. 

Akademiks Lashes Out At Metro Boomin

After reposting the comment to his Instagram page, despite Metro’s kind request, Akademiks unleashed fury. “@metroboomin respectfully my answer to ur request is F*CK No. get the f*ck off my page .. I don’t post for u. Nor do I care what u think bout what I posted bout u,” he captioned the post. Afterward, he unleashed a number of posts, which have since been deleted, where he said Metro had a No Jumper interview pulled from their channel.

During his Twitch stream, Akademiks said he wasn’t going to let “no b*tch a*s producer from no Atlanta who was crying a couple months ago about 20 different things tell me what and what I can’t post.” The media personality went on to call Metro a “sensitive little b*tch” and a “moist ass eyes n***a” who is “too sensitive.” “You must’ve been gassed up with that If Young Metro don’t trust you, I’m gon’ shoot you. You ain’t gonna do shit and neither will Future,” he added.  Check out Akademiks’ tirade above.
