It is really hard to picture who is over Metro Boomin right now as the best hip-hop producer on the planet. From late December 2022 up until the present day, he has dominated the charts with his last two releases. HEROES & VILLAINS is still one of the highest-selling rap albums this year with over one million units sold. It boasts future classics such as "Superhero (Heroes & Villains)" with Future and Chris Brown. Furthermore, the deeper cuts like "Feel The Fiyaaaah" featuring A$AP Rocky and the late, great Migos member Takeoff and "Walk Em Down" with 21 Savage and Mustafa are fantastic as well.
Fast forward to the summer of 2023 and this is where really cements himself in the upper echelon of rap. Metro was selected to craft the soundtrack for one of the biggest films of the year Spider Man: Across The Spider Verse. He brought on tremendous talent such as Lil Wayne, Swae Lee, A$AP Rocky, Offset, JID, and many more. Now, he possesses two of the highest-anticipated collaboration projects to date, one with Future and the other with rising star JID.
