Album: The Life of Pablo

The first half of Kanye West’s “Father Stretch My Hands” suite is technically produced by West, Mike Dean, and Rick Rubin, with Metro on co-production duties (and additional production from others still). But the song’s most memorable moment—more than Kid Cudi, more than the choir, more than “she just bleached her asshole”—is that drop: “If young Metro don’t trust you, I’m gon’ shoot you.” The ten words are taken from one of Future’s sessions for an Uncle Murda single, and they made Metro one of the biggest guest stars on one of the year’s most talked-about albums.
