St Louis beatmaker Metro Boomin recently took to social media to express his desire to create a dream rap album inspired by 2000s and 1990s hip-hop featuring all the genre’s legends.
Detailing his idea, Boomin wrote on Twitter/X, “It’s always been an idea and dream of mine to create a pure and authentic 90s/early 2000s album with all the OGs and some of the new artists mixed in.”
Boomin (real name Leland Wayne) explained how he believed it would bridge the ever-widening gap between old and new. In response to his tweet, fans began giving him some suggestions.
One user listed T-Pain, Akon, Jeezy, Gucci Mane, T.I., Kanye West, Lil Wayne, 50 Cent, Eminem and Jay-Z, to which he responded by posting a gif of a man writing down names.
Fans continued to make suggestions, with another fan looking at a Harlem connection, commenting, “Rocky & Killa Cam over a Metro sample chop,” to which Metro replied, “This always been an idea of mine anyway so you might as well count it.”
One person also proposed JID for the project, with Metro saying the Dreamville MC “gotta be on there 4sho.” Metro Boomin has long been hinting that he has a large amount of material ready to be released in 2024.
Earlier this year, Wayne explained he had “3 at the very least.” However, he has now increased the number, recently unveiling, “I’ve already got my next 5 albums planned out so you just gotta wait and see. 2023 was great, but just watch what I do 2024!!!!! #itsgongetgreaterlater.”
Metro has already teased a joint album with Future. The Atlanta rapper recently said it was “on the way,” although no official release date has been announced. One of Future’s most successful singles was produced by Boomin, and that is the iconic track ‘Mask Off’.
