Metro Boomin reflects on the state of Hip Hop as “Like That,” the viral track heard around the globe, skyrockets to the top of the charts, marking a career milestone.

Billboard reports that the Kendrick Lamar-backed track, fresh off Future and Metro Boomin’s latest collaborative effort, WE DON’T TRUST YOU, has surged to No. 1 on the Hot 100 songs chart. Additionally, it’s one of five songs from the album to debut in the Hot 100’s top 10, with the LP itself claiming the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200.

After catching wind of the achievement, snagging his first No. 1 hit as a billed artist, the multi-platinum producer took to X/Twitter to celebrate.“HIP HOP IS ALIVE AND WELL #WEDONTTRUSTYOU,” he wrote on Monday (April 1).

“ALL PURELY OFF STREAMS NO PHYSICALS NO BUNDLES JUST GREAT MUSIC AND EMBRACE FROM YOU ALL!! THANK YOU!!!! #WETRUSTYOU (hands shaking emoji] #WEDONTTRUSTTHEM [no pedestrians emoji],” he added in a separate thread, emphasizing how they secured the win.

In its debut week, the Jumpman collaborators amassed 251,000 album units, marking the largest sales week of 2024. This achievement ranks second for Future, following “What a Time To Be Alive” with Drake in 2015. The album’s success is largely fueled by streaming, with its 17 tracks collecting an impressive 324.31 million streams.

The duo’s latest release sparked conspiracy theories about a Future-Drake fallout and the “big three” concept in Hip Hop.

On the track, Kennny delivers the iconic line: “Think I won’t drop the location? I still got PTSD/ Muthafuck the big three, n-gga, it’s just big me/ N-gga, bum, what? I’m really like that”

The discussion first gained traction with J. Cole’s mention of himself, Kendrick Lamar, and Drake, in “First Person Shooter” last year, comparing himself to Muhammad Ali.

On the flip side, Drake subtly shaded Kendrick by asserting that he and Cole alone hold the title of “greatest of all time.”

While Drake hasn’t directly replied to Kendrick, speculation swirls that the West Coast MC has a diss track ready. Meanwhile, Drizzy has made several comments that seemingly address the verse.
