I like to give the newcomers shine here on MFD but I support those I rock with too — even if they happen to be a bit further along. With that said: Metro Boomin is still outchea giving it to these folks behind the boards. LOL.
Not sure if y’all have heard but the young beatsmith has officially joined forces with Atlanta’s hottest rapper right now, Young Thug. Together, they’ll be referred to as Metro Thuggin. Got it? Here, they’ve offered the first track from their collaborative effort to come this spring via iTunes.
Complete with Thugger’s ‘sneeze’ ad-libs — which I’m nearly embarrassed to love as much as I do — the track is clearly their version of Drizzy’s ‘The Language’ — with a boomin’ ass beat underneath as an anchor. I like how the artwork is, like, a nod to Drake’s breakthrough project ‘So Far Gone.’ If this joint is any indication, the album should be doable, even if only for the chemistry between these two. Lyrically? Um. We’ll see.
