Metro Boomin’s new album really aims to dispel those myths, those that pertain to men “feeling comfortable in their britches.”
Metro effectively puts the “samurais out of service” and moves the shogunate to a faraway town. His album is everything old, and new again. It helps to have dense lyricists such as Gunna & Young Thug pick apart the frozen idioms.
Young Thug chalks up his losses to a “Lesbian,” sound familiar? Well, to be fair, Thugger and Gunna aren’t exactly sticking to script. Rather, they are describing the often-unrequited process of falling deep into love. Turns out Metro Boomin, Young Thug, Gunna aren’t made of stainless steel, but the same flesh and guts as the rest of us. Oh, the humanity in this complex situation.
With their help, Metro is able to manifest an interesting hybrid uncommon to rap, an introspective yet uplifting piece of music. Don’t take my word for it, see for yourself.
And I just bought another, another one
Shorty eatin’ crepes, take me way in London
Bangin’ hats in Dior like I’m Farrakhan
None of my hoes don’t wear Fear of God
I was just runnin’ sprints and some marathons
Pinstripe pants make me bigger.
