This is a devastating loss for one of the biggest producers in the music industry right npw. If you follow Metro Boomin’s social media, you can tell that him and his mother were very close. According to Metro, his mother was one of the first people to notice his musical talents and would sometimes drive him over eight hours from St. Louis to Atlanta so that he could collaborate with rappers he had met online.
In one tweet from a few years ago, the producer called her his “biggest inspiration.”
The producer is known for making hits with artists such as 21 Savage, Future, Drake, Young Thug, Migos, Travis Scott, Kanye West, Gucci Mane and more.
Our condolences go out to Metro Boomin and his family.
