Metro Boomin Isn’t Sure He Can Trust Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump
Just after 2 p.m. Eastern on Tuesday, Metro tweeted, "The trump concert and merch does not mean I support Hillary Clinton." He continued, "can't really honestly say I trust either one...." You can view these tweets below, courtesy of Metro's official Twitter account. The beatsmith is also selling exclusive merch relating to Trump, which you can cop right here.
The show at Playstation Theater in Times Square is set for just four days before the election. Metro tells Complex, “With the election coming, I think it’s time to speak out, and not like speak out by getting extra political with this shit, but let people know. So letting y’all know I don’t trust him, you don’t trust him and go ahead and celebrate that.”
He continues, “And also, people love coming to concerts and coming together, though at the same time it’s not all about that, but sharing the message and the same view. With it so close to the election, I thought, let’s have this concert and celebrate this and all agree that we can’t have this guy as our President.”
Metro will donate all proceeds from the show to establish a college scholarship fund. Every year, this fund will send one graduating high school senior from the greater St. Louis area to attend Morehouse College in Atlanta, Ga. - the same path that Metro took from high school to college. And it won’t be for just this year, either; Metro wants to send a kid from St. Louis to college every year. You can cop tickets for the concert right here via Playstation Theater. 2016 XXL Freshman 21 Savage is also slated to perform.
