Metro is about to make a Boomin return as rap’s revered superhero.
Known for his menacing, villainous sound strengthened by longtime collaborator 21 Savage, the GRAMMY-nominated composer-producer announced his sophomore album HEROES & VILLAINS by way of a fiery, cinematic trailer just a day after his 29th birthday.
Posting the teaser clip on Friday (Sept. 16), Metro’s forthcoming effort is poised to be his most special yet — considering the circumstances of the tragic passing of his mother in early June. Dedicating the record to the late Ms. Leslie, HEROES & VILLAINS has a triumphant aura surrounding it early on. The “Halloween King” is back, and Metro knows that spooky season belongs to him.
Months away from its Nov. 4 release, fans are overly excited to see how Metro rolls out its remaining details in the coming weeks — already speculating who will be featured on H&V. However, there’s no official word on artwork, features or a tracklist at this time.
Metro’s debut album NOT ALL HEREOS WEAR CAPES was met with praise from fans and critical acclaim, as the 2018 record debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 99,000 first-week units. Not only a super producer, Metro is also a top dot connector in the industry — working with Travis Scott, 21, Gunna, Offset, Drake, Young Thug and many more of hip-hop’s heroes.
Prior to his second solo LP, Metro lended his production chops to Big Sean’s Double Or Nothing, the sequel to Savage Mode, NAV’s Perfect Timing and his legendary Halloween project with 21 and Offset, Without Warning.
Trust that HEROES & VILLAINS will be one of the best projects of 2022, even if “Young Metro don’t trust you.”
