Metro Boomin season is once again in full effect thanks to the Atlanta-based producer's work on the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse soundtrack. It's an undeniably sad time of year for the creative as he mourns the one-year anniversary of his mother's shocking and untimely death. He shared a heartfelt tribute to her on social media to commemorate the occasion but has otherwise been pouring his heart and soul into various projects while working through his grief.

The animated film's soundtrack finds Metro linking up with some of the industry's finest, including 21 Savage, 2 Chainz, and Offset. While many titles on the 13-track effort are joint ones, the closing song, "Nas Morales" finds Nas operating solo over an infectious beat from the Savage Mode hitmaker. His lyrics include various spider references, such as "Shoot a web, glidin' through the sky, through the air / Dancin' through the buildings, Fred Astaire, bunch of skyscrapers everywhere" on the chorus.

They're planning on dropping Perfect Timing 2 in the future, and the 29-year-old has also shared that he's been hard at work on some serious heat with Future. Most recently, he and Hendrix teamed up for "All The Way Live" from this weekend's release.

Quotable Lyrics:

Shoot a web, glidin' through the sky, through the air
Dancin' through the buildings, Fred Astaire, bunch of skyscrapers everywhere
I'm just flexin' my ability, sick and tired of humility
Can't believe that they would hate on me
