    Metro Boomin doesn't trust Atlantic Records.

    On Wednesday morning, the hitmaking producer called out the label home to Lil Uzi Vert, Cardi B and more, when he responded to a tweet about a label A&R meeting in Atlanta next month.



    Metro, 24, followed up his initial quote tweet, stating that he's decided to look out for his fellow producers because "they didn't look out for us."

    Though the St. Louis producer, born Leland Tyler Wayne, didn't provide an actual account of his experience with Atlantic, he isn't the first artist in the hip-hop community to call out the label's, shall I say, less than savory business practices.

    In 2010, Lupe Fiasco famously criticized his now former label home for pressuring him to revise his existing contract and sign a 360 deal; in 2014, Buzzfeed ran a story on how Atlantic knowingly trapped Young Thug with a 360 deal; Waka Flocka was embroiled in arguments with the label for years, claiming they held up his album release and didn't care about him as a human being; and just a few months ago, Action Bronson, who is still signed to Atlantic, openly called out his label over the album's delay and explained why record labels, in general, "s---."

    We've reached out to Metro's management for more details and will update this story if they respond.

    Update: Metro has clarified his earlier tweet about Atlantic Records, citing Warner executive Mike Caren and his division, APG, as the culprits:
