"If you ask me. It's Metro Boomin featuring Future."
Flying Lotus embarked on an impassioned Twitter rant attacking an industry culture that he believes exploits and underappreciates producers.
Very important to know your worth," he began. "To producers. When a rapper invites u to the studio and asks u to make beats on the spot.Tell them to pay your fee on the spot, cuz fuck that."
“Lots of rappers genuinely think they doing us favors by fuckin w us,” he continued. “Hella rap artists are rape artists. Taking advantage of abilities thinking its a good look for us! Most my people behind the scenes is broke. Ain’t no reason why the homies shouldn’t be eating super well right now... We get fuked w no vaseline."
He cited the creative relationship between Metro Boomin and Future, asserting that Metro should be receiving the lion's share of the glory. “If u ask me. It’s @MetroBoomin featuring @1future. He makes that shit what it is tbh.”
