Initially, he intended to be a rapper, but he finally opted to become a hip-hop producer, which was a different route.
Early on, Wayne began utilizing social media to connect with renowned hip-hop artists while still in high school. His mother regularly drove him from St. Louis to Atlanta to meet up with musicians with whom he had been in contact over the internet.
It all started with Tay Don, and that led to collaborations with other musicians like Gucci Mane, OJ Da Juiceman, and Future, among others. Wayne relocated to Atlanta after high school to study business management at Morehouse College.
In the end, he decided to take a break from college to pursue a career in music full-time. His debut mixtape, “19 & Boomin,” was published in 2013 under the stage moniker Metro Boomin.
In 2014, Metro became a hip-hop producer. He worked with Future on his mixtape “Monster” as an executive producer and also produced “I Won,” the sixth single off Future’s studio album “Honest.” Metro worked with Future and Drake on their joint mixtape “What a Time to Be Alive” in 2015.
Following Future’s “Purple Reign” mixtape release in 2016, he went on to produce the song “Jumpman” for the rapper. “Bad and Boujee” by Migos, 21 Savage’s “X” (which he also produced), and the EP “Savage Mode” were all produced by Metro in 2016.
A number of Future’s songs, Kodak Black’s “Tunnel Vision” and Big Sean’s “Bounce Back” were on the Billboard Hot 100 the following year, all of which were produced by Metro.
