600Breezy Feat. Molly Murk
Which Chicago rapper is going to blow up next? The smart money's on 600Breezy, who has amassed a huge regional following, earned a Drake co-sign, and has been spotted chilling recently with the 300 Ent. brass. Today, HNHH premieres his new offering: "Circus," in which Metro Boomin and Southside's creepy strings and the maniacal delivery of the late Molly Murk will transport the listener inside a hellish, trappy big top. This track will trigger PTSD for people who used to be scared of clowns when they were kids.
You Was Right
Lil Uzi Vert
Lil Uzi Vert's Lil Uzi Vs. The World mixtape just dropped, and as you might expect, there's quite a number of energetic records among the bunch, a couple of which come courtesy of production MVP Metro Boomin. "You Was Right" is one of the tracks in question, and finds the two artists bringing their A-game to make something special. Of course, it starts with Metro's new favorite tag, "If Young Metro...", and lives up to the promise of the immortal phrase.
Right Now (Remix)
Uncle Murda Feat. Future, Fabolous & Jadakiss
Last year, Uncle Murda teamed up with Future for a Metro Boomin-produced banger called “Right Now,” and today he’s back with the official remix adding Brooklyn spitters Fabolous & Jadakiss to it.
Ty Dolla $ign Feat. Quavo
Ty Dolla $ign recently revealed that his extremely underrated debut album, Free TC, would be re-released with some new tracks in the near future, and today, he appears to have delivered one of those bonus cuts. "Long Time" has a lot to live up to given its collaborators, Quavo and Metro Boomin, and naturally, they both deliver on their contributions to the song, which thanks to Metro, cruises along at a steady clip, but never breaks from a smoky, ambient feel.
Ready To Boom (Notorious B.I.G. x Metro Boomin Mix)
MICK & Chi Duly
First things first, rest in peace to the Notorious B.I.G., who passed away on this date in 1997. In honor of the influential late emcee, producers MICK (fka Mick Boogie) and Chi Duly have put together a 30-minute mix that combines Biggie’s recognizable flow with various production from buzzing producer Metro Boomin.
WELL$ Feat. Alec Lomami
Well$ is getting ready to drop his upcoming project, The Way I'm Living Makes My Mom Nervous, and today, he's shared the first official single from the project, which finds him teaming with Atlanta MVP Metro Boomin and Alec Lomami. Rather than the usual pummeling production we hear from Metro on Future's material, this one is a little more reserved and meditative. The energy then rests on Well$, who delivers an inspired vocal performance, inflecting his verses with urgency and personality.
Chief Keef announced his Peacocks, Peacoats, Flavor & Paper EP at the end of 2015, promising that the project would be a collaboration with Metro Boomin. While a very exciting prospect, it never arrived on its December 25th release date, and since then we've yet to hear anything more about it.
I Can't Wait (Remix)
Zuse Feat. Lil Durk
For his first release of 2016, Jamaican via ATL rapper, Zuse, decides to revisit his latest mixtape, Trapzuse, and give his record “I Cant Wait” the official remix treatment. Instead of Chip though, Zuse decides to recruit Chicago rapper Lil Durk for an additional verse, and it’s pretty mean.
Ride Of Your Life
Covering Complex today wasn't enough for Tinashe, so she's decided to drop another song from her upcoming sophomore album, JOYRIDE.
It's been ten days since our last Chief Keef leak, "Run Up," so it's about time for another Keef cut to hit the web. This one is a Metro Boomin and DJ Spinz-produced joint, "Too Turnt," otherwise known as "TT." The record finds Keef chanting that he's "TT," naming all the ladies and/or drugs he's surrounded by. We're unsure where this song will land, as Keef has a few projects in the work.
Yesterday, DJ Esco was the first to hint at the possibility of a new Future mixtape, as he shared this clip via Twitter. The video shows Esco and Metro capturing some rare studio vibes while putting the finishing touches on "Purple Reign," which, as we've come to discover, provides a fitting finale to the mixtape from which it takes its name.
Metro Boomin and Southside have become two of Future's most important collaborators over the last year. Metro has overseen much of Future's work over his recent creative burst, and has also sculpted his sound by contributing his impossibly heavy instrumentals to the rapper's many projects. Meanwhile, Southside is partially responsible for bringing the 56 Nights sound to Future, beginning with the influential "Commas" beat back in 2014 (DJ Spinz recently told us about how that particular hit came together).
Nyck Caution Feat. Joey Bada$$
We hadn't heard too much from Pro Era since Kirk Knight dropped off his excellent debut album in October. That changed today, though, and it seems the label's primary focus early into 2016 is another wildly talented Brooklyn spitter by the name of Nyck Caution. Caution suddenly dropped off three tracks today, though this one, "What's Understood," featuring Joey Badmon and produced by Metro Boomin, is, of course, the biggest.
Make A Lot
Young Thug and Metro Boomin had a brief feud that unfortunately took place over the very public space of Twitter, but the two have since worked things out, and once again, it seems Metro Thuggin may be a possibility. Another new track from the two collaborators has surfaced today, but there's no way of knowing when it dates from or whether it's intended for their long-awaited project.
Get 2 Bussin
G Herbo Feat. Lil Bibby
This morning G Herbo shared a fresh track called "Get 2 Bussin" with his fellow Chicagoan Lil Bibby, their first collab since "Don't Worry" off Herb's recent mixtape Ballin Like I'm Kobe.
We had to highlight one more cut off Sosa's new mixtape, Finally Rollin 2, which is proving to have good replay value. Much of the tape, including the Zaytoven-produced "Foes," has a throwback sound to it, so "Jumanji," produced by young Metro and Sonny Digital, might be the track with the most potential to blow up. Listen to the No DJ version of "Jumanji," courtesy of Metro Boomin.
Where Ya At
Tonight, Chief Keef made good on his promise to drop his new mixtape, Finally Rollin 2. The tape finds Sosa zoned-in on his freestyle game, spitting over almost exclusively Atlanta productions. Most of these, in fact, are throwbacks from '00s tracks from OGs like Gucci Mane and Jeezy, but he also went in over some of today's hottest beats, including Metro Boomin's "Where Ya At," Future's Drake-featuring single off DS2.
Aww Man (Freestyle)
Currently touring throughout Europe, Kid Ink like what he heard on Lil Bibby's single "Aww Man" featuring Future so much that he decided to flip it with a remix of his own. You can't blame him -- this Metro Boomin beat is enticing. Kid Ink keeps the Future hook intact, letting Fewtch open things up before spitting a verse himself and letting the hook ride out.
Young Thug & Metro Boomin have been making headlines this week for going at each other on twitter, leaving us to believe their highly anticipated Metro Thuggin project wasn’t going to see the light of day anymore. However, it turns out the “beef” was all one big troll job to promote their new single “Hercules,” which just dropped tonight and will see life on the duo's upcoming project, Metro Thuggin.
Blue Or Red
More ferocious material from Waka Flocka. As there's no release date in sight for his already finished album, Flockaveli 2, Flocka has decided to bypass his label, Atlantic, and drop Flockaveli 1.5, which will be a "free album." He comes through today with the first song off the free release, which will be out in a week, on November 19. "Blue or Red" is a banger produced by two of ATL's finest: Southside and Metro Boomin.
