Metro Boomin Setup, Bio, & More

Born Leland Tyler Wayne, Metro Boomin is a 23 year old super producer from St. Louis, Missouri. While attending college he began working with famous artists such as Gucci Mane. He realized that producing beats was a much more lucrative path so he left school to pursue it full time. This was an extremely wise decision as Metro Boomin is practically a house hold name now. Even if you don’t know him, you’ve probably heard his songs on the radio or in the club. ‘Bad and Boujee’ from Migos was produced by Leland and hit the #1 spot in the country. Here is the Metro Boomin setup for aspiring producers.
