After Hit-Boy dissed them on an unreleased track, Metro Boomin and Hitmaka have responded. Hit-Boy, the composer of “King’s Disease,” targeted several other producers in the song, which Rory Farrell, co-host of the Rory & Mal podcast, previewed on Instagram.
“I’m usually homeboys with producers I get compared to, but on this one I want to say I’m stretched out, extra leg room/ I don’t really know dude, he seem like a cool cat/ But I never once heard Metro Boomin do boom bap,” Hit-Boy rapped.
Metro Boomin posted a tweet that appeared to be a response to Hit-Boy’s song. He quoted a line from Kendrick Lamar’s “Rich Spirit” lyrics: “Stop playin’ with me ‘fore I turn you to a song.”
Hit-Boy aimed jabs at Hitmaka after the latter boasted about being a superior producer compared to the Surf Club sound engineer based on the number of his songs played on the radio earlier this week.
“I just seen Yung Berg spoke on the wave, I should do him like Trick Trick and snatch Hit out his name/ I had decoded the game, I had the coldest of days/ I’m like Bieber on his cruise, how you got no credits without co-producers?” Hit-Boy rapped.
Hitmaka responded to the situation in a comment on HipHopDX’s Instagram post, stating that all he did was point out that Hit-Boy wasn’t producing music for the radio or mainstream. He also added that Hit-Boy dissed them on a beat that would never reach mainstream or radio, which only confirmed his earlier statement.
