Atlanta’s legendary record producer Metro Boomin, born Leland Tyler Wayne, has reportedly sold a massive portion of his entire catalogue to Shamrock Capital. In a publishing deal which costs over $70 million, Boomin joins another influential record producer Zaytoven who sold his catalogue in January this year.
Metro Boomin is one of the biggest hip/hop producers globally. The young producer is behind some of the leading ‘Atlanta Strip Club’ sounds with Future. However, his discography has expanded to new levels in the last few years.
Metro-produced records include ‘Mask Off’ and ‘Jumpman’ with Future, ‘Bank Account’ by 21 Savage. ‘Congratulations’ by Post Malone, ‘Bad and Boujee’ by Migos and The Weeknd’s ‘Heartless’. Besides his debut 2018 studio album ‘Not All Heroes Wear Capes’, Metro has released two collaborative projects with 21 Savage titled ‘Savage Mode’ (2016) and ‘Savage Mode II’ (2018).
Besides these top-selling rap records, Boomin recently released his sophomore ‘Heroes & Villains’ LP. The fifteen-track record features guest appearances by John Legend, Future, Chris Brown, Travis Scott, Don Toliver, 21 Savage, Young Nudy, The Weeknd, A$ap Rocky, Takeoff & Gunna. Executive produced by Boomin, the album clocks in at 48 minutes and serves as the follow-up to ‘Not All Heroes Wear Capes’ LP.
The first instalment in the now confirmed trilogy ‘Not All Heroes Wear Capes’ was a twenty-six-track two-disc project which featured guest appearances by Gucci Mane, Travis Scott, 21 Savage, Swae Lee, Young Slime Life’s Gunna & Young Thug, Wizkid, J Balvin, Offset, Kodak Black and Drake on Disc 1 alongside an instrumental disc 2. The album was released on November 6th 2018.
