Metro Boomin has created a sound of his own, as many describing his genera as “haunting trap”. From giving his focus to upcoming artists in the Atlanta area, he has been credited to helping artists gain popularity through their music. In 2014, Metro Boomin’s first hit was a song with ILoveMakonnen called, “Tuesday”, which was later redone by Drake as a remix. Many more well known songs were to come after that, such as “Jumpman” by Future and Drake, “Bad and Boujee” by Migos, and “Ric Flair Drip” by 21 Savage and Offset which has accumulated over 400 million plays on Spotify. Along with producing albums such as “Perfect Timing” by Nav, and “Without Warning” by 21 Savage and Offset, and “Savage Mode” which contributed to 21 Savage’s boost in popularity.
A turn that many were not expecting was to come after Metro’s release of Big Sean’s “Double or Nothing” album. About 8 months ago, Boomin stated on social media that he was retiring from the music industry, leaving behind his rap and producing career. Once word got out about his upcoming project, his fans were happy to hear he was back in business.
With so much success to be blamed on Metro Boomin and his career working with others, there was a lot of pressure for him to create an astounding next project. “He really stepped out of his comfort zone for this project” says Anthony Fantano, a music critic on YouTube. From beat switches to using unique sounds, many say Metro tried something different with this project and it turned out well.
Along with the unique production, there were some unique verses on the album as well. The infamous “whisper verse” from 21 Savage on the song “Don’t Come Out The House” was a never heard before sound which people have grown fond of. The song is the second most played song on the whole album, which is to show that trying something new can never hurt.
