Over the past few years, no hip-hop producer has become a bigger star than Metro Boomin. From releasing entire collaborative projects with 21 Savage, Offset, and Big Sean to working on singles with some of the biggest names in the game, Metro has boosted his profile considerably. It also doesn’t hurt that his beats are easily identifiable by his voice tags.
