Metro Boomin 

Wants some mo' — at 1015 Folsom.

If Young Metro don’t trust you/I’m gon’ shoot you, Future croons softly before the beat drops on his now-iconic hit with Drake, “Jumpman,” from their collaborative 2015 mixtape What a Time to be Alive. Metro Boomin, the 22-year-old Atlanta producer who made the majority of the beats on WATTBA, also gets plenty of shout-outs on Future’s brand new tape, Purple Reign. A sample of one of Drake’s lines from “Digital Dash,” Esco and Boomin/They got it on smash, echoes throughout the thirteen-track project, giving due credit to one of the key architects of Future’s sound. These endorsements from Future and other established artists have revolutionized Metro Boomin’s career, making him one of the most sought-after beatmakers in the industry — and for good reason. His hit-making ability, so far, has been bulletproof. Metro Boomin DJs at 1015 Folsom in San Francisco on January 29.
