Metro Boomin is quietly having a monstrous year, one that is perhaps even better than Mike Will's 2013 -- which earned him SPIN magazine Artist of the Year honors. After landing production credits on YG's My Krazy Life, Future's Honest, 2 Chainz's FreeBase EP, and Wiz Khalifa's 28 Grams, he's continuing to build momentum for a strong close. He's the producer on everyone's radar. Metro Boomin is the future of trap.
The young upstart ATL producer has two releases queued up for the remainder of 2014; one a collaboration with Young Thug aptly titled Metro Thuggin, and the other a solo offering called 20 and Boomin, which will showcase he production via a host of artists. The first release off the latter, "Chanel Vintage," features the aforementioned Young Thug and Future, and the three are a match made in weirdo trap heaven.
Over a chimey, synth-laced instrumental, the two Atlanta rappers do what they do best; they each shout rap their way right out of your speakers. Young Thug even takes the time to promote higher education: "Young Thugga don't want him no stale misses, let me see some degrees." It makes a fitting appetizer. Hopefully, there's more to come soon.
Stream Metro Boomin's "Chanel Vintage" below, and be on the lookout for both Metro Thuggin and 20 and Boomin, which are due out before year's end.
