What's The 'Metro Groomin' Nickname About? Metro Boomin Grooming Allegations Explained

The Kendrick Lamar vs. Drake Feud keeps developing to new stages on the internet. In a backlash to Kendrick Lamar and Metro's diss "Like That" track accusing Drake of being a pedophile, Twitter (X) users decided to dig into old tweets between 2010 and 2014 from Metro Boomin's account in which he allegedly referenced being with underage girls and referred to himself as a "pedophile" at a grocery store.

The exposed tweets sparked the hashtag #MetroGroomin on X, leading to a series of jokes, memes putting the hip-hop producer as a groomer and turning the tides on the ongoing rappers beef.
