Metro Boomin has announced a new Young Metro Don’t Trust Trump Concert coming to NYC. He is speaking out against Trump while encouraging the youth to get out and vote. The concert is set to take place at The Playstation Theater in New York City on Nov. 4th. He is hoping the concert will spark conversation about the forthcoming election and have more people speaking about voting. He plans on donating all proceeds from the concert to setting up yearly scholarship funds that will send a high school student from the St. Louis area to Morehouse University. That is the same way Metro took when he was younger.

Tickets go on sale for the Young Metro Don’t Trust Trump concert on Friday at 10am EST. Fans can sign up here to access an early pre-sale before midnight tonight.

“With the election coming, I think it’s time to speak out, and not like speak out by getting extra political with this shit, but let people know,” Metro told Complex. “So letting y’all know I don’t trust him, you don’t trust him and go ahead and celebrate that. And also, people love coming to concerts and coming together, though at the same time it’s not all about that, but sharing the message and the same view. With it so close to the election, I thought, let’s have this concert and celebrate this and all agree that we can’t have this guy as our President.”

“It’s about setting trends, and I’m always about setting trends and I know I can be an influence and I’m just now realizing that,” Metro said. “Let niggas know it’s cool, you can still be cool, and you don’t have to be scared to speak up about political issues. The kids don’t really know that.”

“I feel like that’s important because even though I dropped out of college and was pretty vocal about it, I don’t want people to think I’m on some anti-college shit. Ain’t nothing wrong with college, but I just feel like everyone’s paths are different,” Metro explained. “I still want to go back and get my degree and back then I took it for granted, but I know there are so many kids that would kill for that opportunity. So now, to be in the position I’m in, I want to send one young kid from St. Louis to Morehouse and keep paying for that.”

“You’re supposed to represent our country,” he said. “You can’t have somebody like that who’s talking about walls and shipping people out and whatever his views are. You can’t have someone represent our country saying stuff like that.”
