Atlanta-based music producer Metro Boomin has delayed the release of his sophomore studio album ‘Heroes & Villains’.
The St. Louis rapper and producer – real name Leland Tyler Wayne – had announced the release of the album in September this year. The album is dedicated to his mother who was reportedly shot by her husband in June.
Please love and appreciate your parents while they are here,” Metro wrote. “I’d give anything in the world to speak to my mom again. Crying everyday is the new normal.”
The album is now slated to drop on December 2nd – almost a month after the scheduled November 4th release date. Metro took to Twitter to announce the new release date.
“I couldn’t get all the samples on my album cleared in time for next week so I’m dropping on Dec 2nd now so I have enough time to make sure you all get this masterpiece as intended,” he wrote.
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).
More details about the album are awaited.
