Leland Wayne, widely known as Metro Boomin is the rap game and music industry’s go-to-guy for banging and heavy 808 beats with rhythmic arrangements. Metro is responsible for hit songs in the Freeband Gang head honcho, Future‘s catalog. Future songs such as Honest, I Won featuring Kanye West, Where Ya At featuring Drake and most recently Jumpman by Drake and Future which all received RIAA Platinum certifications. Metro Boomin mixes his music with his sound engineer Alex Tumay.
“If Young Metro don’t trust you, I’mma shoot ya“
Thank God For The Day with Fader
The tag “If Young Metro don’t trust you, I’mma shoot ya” x3 is from a relatively unknown song by Uncle Murda featuring Future. The tag has become a premonition for Metro’s killer production. Metro continues to produce outstanding records such as Young Thug‘s bouncy and conspicious Hercules, Future’s platinum selling song featuring The Weeknd, Low Life and Travi$ Scott‘s 2Chainz and Future assisted single, 3500. With every song judging by Metro’s output, it is apparent that Young Metro is well-rounded regarding his ability to use FL Studio and Pro Tools.
Survival of the Illest
In order for older and upcoming music producers to survive in the music industry, they have to continuously evolve. Failure to learn new things, adapt and innovate invites dwarfism in the length of one’s music career. Metro Boomin who is surrounded by his friends such as Sonny Digital and Southside stays on the up and up with everything music. Don’t you think you should do the same if you too make beats?
