As the battle between hip-hop's "Big Three" of Drake, J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar begins to fizzle out, key player Metro Boomin has chimed in to claim that an unidentified Torontonian hacked him in an attempt to instigate. 

The super producer who teamed up with Future for WE DON'T TRUST YOU — which included Kendrick's diss verse on "Like That" — has been in the news lately for posting and liking tweets that some people think are attacking Drake and his Her Loss collaborator, 21 Savage

"I see a lot of n—s been scared to post the album too," the alleged hacker wrote in a now-deleted post from Metro's account, which included a pair of hashtags. "I forgive but I don't forget," one read. 

Apparently, he regained control from the hacker yesterday, according to an announcement on his X (formerly Twitter) account.

"Got my phone [number] and accounts back today," he revealed. "Somebody hacked me the day the album dropped ... and all those corny ass tweets, all my day [ones] know that's nowhere in my character. All positivity always on my end."

He then goes on to imply that he suspects a Toronto individual of hacking him due to a series of calls he received from the 416 area code right before he got hacked. 

Perhaps to clear up the beef — or, better yet, to double down — Metro also revealed another joint album with Future is set to come out April 12.
