Nas said in 2008 that "hip-hop is dead."

Metro Boomin disagrees.

On Tuesday, it was confirmed that Metro and Future's song featuring Kendrick Lamar "Like That" from their new album "We Don't Trust You," had reached the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.

Four other singles from "We Don't Trust You" – "Type Shit," "Cinderella," "We Don't Trust You," and "Young Metro" – also debuted in the top 10.

To celebrate, Metro took to Instagram to share his thoughts on the current state of hip-hop.

"HIP HOP IS ALIVE AND WELL," he wrote alongside a screenshot of the Hot 100 top 10, as well as some snaps of him and Future.

"Like That" has been the talk of the town thanks to Kendrick Lamar's guest verse in which he chose to diss both Drake and J. Cole.

Though neither Drake or Cole has responded to Kendrick on wax, Drizzy appeared to hit back at his "Poetic Justice" collaborator with a defiant speech during a performance in Sunrise, Florida last week.

"I got my fucking head up high, my back straight," he told the crowd.
