"Now go make another song telling more lies cause we both know you can't tell everyone why I don't f--k wit u," the producer tweeted.

While Drake has been sparring with Kendrick Lamar in the spicy feud sweeping the rap world, the 6 God has had smoke for Metro Boomin as well. It’s unclear exactly what sparked the beef between Drizzy and the producer, but after Drake sniped Metro on “Push Ups,” he came after him again on “Family Matters” over the weekend.

On the fiery diss track that arrived May 3, Drake used Boomin’s government name — Leland Wayne — with the OVO boss also insinuating that he had been intimate with Metro’s girl. (“Leland Wayne, he a f–king lame, so I know he had to be an influence”).

“The drum thing was laughable so I let it slide but what we not gon do is spread lies and have my loved ones involved nobody ever hit my girl n—a we grew up together she’s a real woman and not even in the industry but I guess #youwouldntknownunboutdatttt,” Metro responded on X Sunday (May 5).

“Now go make another song telling more lies cause we both know you can’t tell everyone why I don’t f–k wit u,” he continued in a second tweet. “that wouldn’t be a good look either for u so imma spare us both wit that.”

That was only the tip of the iceberg for Metro, who referred to Drake as a “colonizer” of hip-hop while attaching photos from Pusha T’s “The Story of Adidon” artwork featuring Drizzy in blackface. He went on to jab Drake about “pushing 40” having his nails painted, and more.

The St. Louis native also claimed that Drake attempted to block “Like That” from being serviced to radio, and attached an allegedly leaked email from label attorneys that went viral on X.

“I’m lame but the first week after #LikeThat you tried to block it at radio,” he tweeted. “I been sitting on this email for a month now but was just sparing you oh u aint #LikeThat record???”

Metro then upped the ante by hosting a “BBL Drizzy Beat Giveaway,” having fans rap over a beat mocking Drake’s alleged cosmetic surgery. The prize? The 30-year-old’s going to give the best freestyle a free beat. “I know a n—a with lipo scars not tryna call me lame,” he wrote.

“You just cheffed a beat about my a–?” Drake asked in response on Instagram to Metro’s giveaway.

The 6 God made the latest entry in the Drake-Kendrick Lamar feud as of press time on Sunday night (May 5) with the defensive “The Heart Part 6.” Drizzy cleared the air on pedophile allegations and sniped at Kendrick’s relationship with fiancée Whitney Alford.

Metro wasn’t impressed, as he tweeted out a Chris Paul meme Sunday night, mocking how even with Drake’s newest diss record, he’s still down a ton of points in the Kendrick battle.
