"If Young Metro Don't Trust You" is one of the DJ tags of producer, Metro Boomin'. The phrase has become popular on Twitter, tweeted along with images that detail the consequences of not being approved by Metro Boomin'. The tag became popular on twitter jokes following its use in the songs Jumpman, by Drake and Future; and Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1, by Kanye West, from the album The Life of Pablo.
The origin of the tag comes from the song "Right Now" by Uncle Murda featuring Future which was also produced by Metro Boomin. It later gained popularity when it was sampled as a DJ Tag in the intro to the song "Jumpman," by rappers Drake and Future. The song was released on September 26th, 2015, and became an instant hit; it has over 81 million listens on YouTube. The phrase is a shout-out to Future's producer Metro Boomin', who Future indicates must approve of all associates, or else violence will ensue.
The lyric was reprised by Future on Kanye West's "Father Stretch My Hands Part 1" and released as part of The Life of Pablo in early February; the album has several samples of "Jumpman" throughout.
The first instances of the phrase being tweeted slightly precede the initial release of "Jumpman," most likely due to song previews. The first tweet paired with an image for humorous effect was created on September 20th, six days before the official release of "Jumpman;" by Twitter user @RichFlair_; it received two favorites.
After being tweeted consistently, the phrase began to be paired with images frequently after the initial stream of "Father Stretch My Hands Part 1," at which point the pairings began to be very popular. On February 11th, 2016, after the initial preview of The Life of Pablo, Twitter user wherebaeat tweeted the lyric combined with two photographs: one of Kim Kardashian holding a rifle, and another of Kris Jenner holding a handgun. The tweet received 35 retweets and 27 favorites.
