Chatting with Gillie Da King and Wallo aka Million Dollaz Worth of Game, iconic producer Metro Boomin revealed the 3 most talented artists he's ever worked with.
The 28-year-old surprised the co-hosts when he name-dropped Solange Knowles, Beyoncé's younger sister, first. "This is not in no order," Metro made sure to clarify. "Or no, 'I forgot you.' I'm just goin' off the top of my head. I'mma say Solange, fasho."
The 28-year-old explained what makes Solange so special in the studio. "I ain't know her like that, so [our first session] was more of a surprise, like, she's a true artist and producer. ... I just respect how her as an artist, she has a clear vision of what she's trying to do, what she's trying to convey."
Metro then added his closest collaborator, Future, to the mix, as well as The Weeknd. Of course, there's an array of notable artists who didn't make the cut: Drake, Kanye, Post Malone, Young Thug, 21 Savage, Big Sean, Gunna, Nicki Minaj, Gucci Mane and more.
Later, Metro broke down the biggest differences between a beatmaker and a producer, two disciplines people tend to confuse.
According to Metro, the former is "someone who strictly makes beats," while a producer "sees the song out from the beginning to the end to make sure it's the best thing that it could be." He continued, "That's the true definition of a producer. ... Just like a coach, kinda."
However, the most viral highlight of the interview – Metro's first on-camera in five years – was when Metro cooked up a high-energy beat in no more than 20 minutes using a retro-soul sample, which Gillie then freestyles over.
"Between the weed and the liquor / And the cars and the ice / And the women and the flights / And them long Vegas nights / N***a stay drippin' with that Gucci on / B*****s in them Louis Vuittons / When your money right that bring the groupies on / Move along!"
