Biography:
St. Louis-raised, Atlanta-based producer Metro Boomin is the master of a street-oriented sound that is jet-black and low-gloss, sufficiently reflected in his alias. Within five years of his first output with Future, he amassed well over a dozen Top 20 R&B/hip-hop hits and a similar quantity of gold and platinum RIAA certifications. Since his early half-decade roll of success working with the likes of Future, iLoveMakonnen, Drake, Migos, and Post Malone -- with "Honest," "Tuesday," "Jumpman," "Bad and Boujee," and "Congratulations" among his biggest hits -- Metro has remained a marquee name. He crowned the Billboard 200 with Not All Heroes Wear Capes (2018), his first solo album, and made return trips to the top spot with Savage Mode II (a 2020 duo LP with 21 Savage) and his Grammy-nominated sophomore set, Heroes & Villains (2022). He branched out to film in 2023, helming the soundtrack to Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. WE DON'T TRUST YOU and WE STILL DON'T TRUST YOU, his first two full albums co-billed with Future, topped the charts in 2024. Metro Boomin got into production during his early teens and also rapped, though he eventually opted to devote all his energy to beatmaking. He connected with artists through social media, and prior to graduating high school, he'd logged thousands of miles on round trips to Atlanta, where he worked with the likes of OJ da Juiceman and, eventually, Gucci Mane and Future. Metro fulfilled his mother's dream with his acceptance to the conveniently located Morehouse College, but he dropped out and invested more in making music than in studying business management. In 2013, Metro's name was on Billboard charts for the first time as the producer of Future's "Karate Chop" and "Honest." Just after the latter single was officially released, he self-released 19 & Boomin. Once iLoveMakonnen's "Tuesday," another early triumph, hit the R&B/hip-hop Top Ten the following year, Metro was a constant presence near the top of that chart. Drake and Future's "Jumpman" and Future's "Low Life" were among the early 2016 hits, followed later in the year by "X" -- taken from Savage Mode, his self-released EP made with 21 Savage -- and Migos' "Bad and Boujee," which eventually topped the R&B/hip-hop and pop charts. Among Metro Boomin's subsequent hits throughout a notable 2017 were Big Sean's "Bounce Back," Post Malone's "Congratulations," Kodak Black's "Tunnel Vision," and Future's "Mask Off." The year remained a busy one, as Metro later released a trio of collaborative mixtapes: Perfect Timing (with NAV), Without Warning (with Offset and 21 Savage), and Double or Nothing (Big Sean). The following year brought even more success for Metro, not only for his input on notable albums by Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne but also for his own project, Not All Heroes Wear Capes. The album topped the Billboard 200 upon release in November 2018 and yielded a pair of platinum singles with "No Complaints," featuring Offset and Drake, and "Space Cadet," on which Metro was joined by Gunna. In 2020, Metro Boomin resumed his partnership with 21 Savage and delivered another Billboard 200 topper, Savage Mode II. Four of its tracks, including "Glock in My Lap," hit the Top 40. Metro scored a third Billboard 200 album in 2022 with his sophomore album, Heroes & Villains. The set contained another quartet of Top 40 entries, most notably the chart-topping platinum hit "Creepin'," a collaboration with the Weeknd and 21 Savage that interpolated Mario Winans' "I Don't Wanna Know." He kept the train of number ones rolling in 2023 with the soundtrack to Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, which arrived that June alongside the animated blockbuster. In addition to featuring the likes of Lil Wayne, Offset, Future, James Blake, and many more, the compilation also included the hit single "Calling" with Swae Lee, Nav, and A Boogie wit da Hoodie. Heroes & Villains received a nomination for Best Rap Album at the 66th Annual Grammy Awards, while Metro Boomin himself was nominated for Producer of the Year, Non-Classical. After contributing heavily to 21 Savage's chart-topping 2024 album, American Dream, Metro Boomin teamed up with longtime collaborator Future for the full-length WE DON'T TRUST YOU. The album topped the Billboard 200 in its opening week, while the single "Like That" was also a number one hit. Three weeks after the album was released, it was followed by WE STILL DON'T TRUST YOU, a distinct album and not a deluxe edition of the first collaboration. Once again, it reached number one. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
