Throughout his teenage years, Metro Boomin’s mom would regularly take him all the way from their home in St Louis, Missouri, United States of America, to Atlanta, Georgia, United States of America (an 8 hour drive) and back so that he could work with rap artists he’d connected with via the internet.

Tay Don, a rap artist who was part of the Bricksquad Monopoly label, was one of the first people who agreed to work with him, which was a jumping off point for him to do collaborations with other rappers on the label, including Gucci Mane, OJ Da Juiceman, and ultimately Future, who became a close friend and frequent collaborator.

Metro Boomin started making these trips when he was still an eleventh grader, and he explained in an interview that OJ Da Juiceman had been the first star to agree to apply his rap skills to Metro Boomin’s beats. This, Metro Boomin says, is what led to his eventual collaborations with Gucci Mane throughout his final high school years.

Once he received his high school diploma, Metro Boomin chose Morehouse College, to pursue his education in Business Management, but also because it was located in Atlanta, Georgia, United States of America.

Metro Boomin, however, soon found that so much of his time was being taken up with his music that he felt he no longer needed to continue pursuing his studies, so he took a break from the college.

That set off Metro Boomin’s career working with such names as Ludacris, Nicki Minaj, 21 Savage, The Weeknd, Wiz Khalifa, Travis Scott, Lana Del Rey, DJ Khaled, Drake, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Gunna, Post Malone, Migos, Waka Flocka Flame, Schoolboy Q, YG, Chief Keef, Yo Gotti, Swae Lee, Meek Mill, Young Scooter, and more.

Metro Boomin also often works with such other big name producers in the hip hop music industry as DJ Spinz, Zaytoven, Southside, Sonny Digital, Tay Keith, Young Chop, and TM88, not to mention Future with whom he’s done “Hard”, “Karate Chop”, “Honest”, and many other songs over the ensuing years.

Metro Boomin’s first mixtape, which was called 19 and Boomin, was first announced in mid 2013. After dropping a bunch of singles in which he collaborated with people such as Gucci Mane and Trinidad James, the album itself finally came out in October of 2013.

The most notable songs were “Maison Margiela” with Future and “Some More” with Young Thug. Music videos were produced for both songs.

Building off the success of 19 and Boomin, Metro Boomin and Young Thug decided to collaborate on an entire album that they decided to call Metro Thuggin. They announced it by dropping a duet called “The Blanguage”.

Ultimately, the complete project never came to fruition, although there are claims that they did finish the album but chose not to actually release it. Various tracks have leaked to the internet over the years, but not the rumored complete version.

Metro Boomin’s next major notable career moment was collaborating with Nicki Minaj on her song “Want Some More”, which he also produced, and which ended up on her 3rd album, which was called The Pinkprint.

Then Metro Boomin was the executive producer for Future’s mixtape called Monster, which featured the hugely successful song “Fuck Up Some Commas”. In addition, Metro Boomin produced Future’s song “I Won”, featuring Kanye West, which appeared on an album by Future called Honest.

Next, Metro Boomin executive produced Future and Drake’s joint mixtape called What a Time to Be Alive. Additionally, Metro Boomin did the producing work on 7 of the album’s eleven songs. He also co executive produced Future’s Purple Reign (the name a reference to Prince’s iconic Purple Rain).

All of this excellent work led to Metro Boomin winning an award for Producer of the Year at the Black Entertainment Television Hip Hop Awards, which provided another big boost for Metro Boomin net worth.

Over the course of 2016, Metro Boomin produced Drake and Future’s “Jumpman”, Migos’ “Bad and Boujee”, The Weeknd and Future’s “Low Life”, “X” with 21 Savage, songs for Kanye West’s album The Life of Pablo, and collaborated with 21 Savage on Savage Mode, an EP.

Over the course of 2017, Metro Boomin net worth was helped with him producing Kodak Black’s “Tunnel Vision”, Future’s “Mask Off”, 21 Savage’s “Bank Account” and Big Sean’s “Bounce Back”. He also collaborated on “Call Me” and “Perfect Timing (Intro)” with Nav, a famous rap star and producer from Canada.

Ultimately, these two songs ended up on their mixtape, Perfect Timing, which also included collaborations with Gucci Mane, 21 Savage, Belly, Playboi Carti, and more.

Meanwhile, on Halloween of that year, Metro Boomin, Offset, and 21 Savage dropped another joint album called Without Warning. The most popular song off this one was “Ric Flair Drip”. Without Warning also featured Quavo and Travis Scott in cameos.

The next month saw Metro Boomin, Big Sean, and 21 Savage put out a song called “Pull Up n Wreck”, which later appeared on their joint album called Double or Nothing, which came out in December of that year. The next single was “So Good”.

The next year, Metro Boomin decided that he would be retiring from being an active artist himself, heralding the change by altering his social media biographies to “Retired record producer and DJ”. Despite that, Metro Boomin’s name appeared on various albums that year, including Nicki Minaj’s Queen, and Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter V.

As it so happens, the entire retirement turned out to be part of a publicity stunt. It continued with Missing Person billboards for Metro Boomin going up throughout various major cities, which turned out to actually all set up his debut solo album as a rapper, which was called Not All Heroes Wear Capes.

This chart topping blockbuster album featured Drake, Offset, Kodak Black, Gucci Mane, 21 Savage, Gunna, Wizkid, Swae Lee, Travis Scott, Young Thug, and J. Balvin.

In 2019, he helped produced The Weeknd’s song “Heartless”, featuring Dre Moon and Illangelo, “Faith”, “Until I Bleed Out” and “Escape from LA” off their 4th album, After Hours.

In 2020, Metro Boomin again collaborated with 21 Savage for a sequel to Savage Mode, this one called simply Savage Mode II. Young Nudy, Young Thug, and Drake appeared on it as well. It singles included “Mr Right Now” and “Runnin”.

The album topped Billboard Magazine’s 200 chart, giving both Metro Boomin and 21 Savage their 2nd back to back album to be in the number one spot.

Metro Boomin’s music, while it falls under the hip hop and rap umbrellas, is specifically referred to as trap. This is due to it being a darker sound than the regular rap, featuring heavy bass and percussion, and a tendency towards Gothic melodies.

Although most of his music is hip hop, he has produced rhythm and blues as well, particularly for The Weeknd, and has also worked in the pop genre for things such as a Gap department store ad campaign.

Many hip hop producers are known for “tagging” their work, meaning placing a catchphrase or shout at the start of their songs in order to let people know that it is indeed they who produced it. Metro Boomin is particularly famous for this practice. It has helped Metro Boomin net worth as it’s helped cultivate his fan base.

Metro Boomin’s arguably most famous tag is “If Young Metro don’t trust you I’m gon shoot you”, which appears in music by Future and first showed up in Uncle Murda’s “Right Now”, which Metro Boomin was the producer on. Fans first really noticed it however, in Drake’s “Jumpman”, a track from What a Time to Be Alive.

Migos’ “Bad and Boujee”, however, is the first time that it really got a broad amount of attention from the widest amount of people.

Another classic Metro Boomin tag is simply calling out “Metro!”, a line that Young Thug first delivered and is particularly prominent in Drake and 21 Savage’s “Mr Right Now”.
