Atlanta-based Metro Boomin has revealed the artwork for his sophomore solo studio record ‘Heroes & Villains’. The highly anticipated LP is slated to drop on December 12th 2022. The artwork – shot and conceptualized by the iconic Hip-Hop photographer Gunner Stahl – showcases a well-suited Boomin shaking hands with a version of himself sporting streetwear and fired up.
Perhaps, the artwork is a metaphor for portraying the iconic record producer’s immense growth over the years – from being a young producer to a record production mogul who just means business. Notably, Boomin’s upcoming effort might just be a two-disc LP. “Heroes & Villains 12.2.22 must be✌🏾sides,” the ‘Bad & Boujee’ producer wrote in an IG post. Check out the artwork below.
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 and includes massive hip-hop records such as ‘Mask Off’ w/ Future, ‘Bad n Boujee’ w/ Migos, ‘Congratulations’ w/ Post Malone and more.
The first installment 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.
