MU­SIC PRO­DUCER

From Mi­gos to Fu­ture, Post Malone, Gucci Mane and 21 Sav­age, a star­tling num­ber of the big­gest hit­mak­ers in hiphop have one el­e­ment in com­mon: the prodi­gious beat­mak­ing of 24-year-old Metro Boomin. A Mem­phis na­tive, the young Metro (born Le­land Tyler Wayne) spent his high school years com­mut­ing back and forth to At­lanta in his mother’s car to work with rap­pers, and by the time he was old enough to drink he was al­ready firmly en­sconced in rap ra­dio’s top tier. Win­ner of two con­sec­u­tive pro­ducer of the year awards from both BET and BMI, Metro was be­hind the boards for mul­ti­ple tracks on Mi­gos, Nicki Mi­naj and Rae Srem­murd’s lat­est full-lengths, and has re­leased two col­lab­o­ra­tive al­bums with Big Sean and Off­set/21 Sav­age.
