Overnight it seems, “If Young Metro don’t trust you I’m gon’ shoot ya” went from just a tag to hip-hop’s official seal of approval. And now we know for sure that Young Metro does not trust Donald Trump. On November 4 in New York City’s Times Square, Metro Boomin will throw a “Young Metro Don’t Trust Trump” concert.
The show takes place just four days before the presidential election. But Metro isn’t planning to get rich at Trump’s expense. Instead, the super producer will donate all proceeds from the show to establish a scholarship fund to Morehouse College, a Historically Black College in Atlanta. Every year, the fund will send one graduating high school senior from the greater St. Louis area to Morehouse, the same path that Metro took, even though he didn’t finish his studies.

Metro told 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. … 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.”
Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday at 10 a.m. EST.
