Metro Boomin Explains His And Young Thug's Testing Process For Their Hit Records

The unusual technique Metro Boomin and Young Thug used to test out their unreleased music has been disclosed.

The multi-platinum producer made an appearance on a brand-new episode of the Full Send Podcast on Saturday, December 17, to promote his just-released album HEROES & VILLIANS. During his nearly hour-and-a-half-long interview, Metro Boomin shared a number of interesting details, such as the fact that he and Young Thug once burned unreleased music CDs to present to DJs.

The producer of “Ric Flair Drip” noted how he and Thug, who is presently in jail fighting a RICO case, would have people watch them at the club after creating brand-new bangers in the studio to determine how effectively the tracks ramped up the party.

“Man, me and [Young] Thug used to do songs and like, soon as we get done doing it like this is when we still had CDs, I would burn a CD on the computer and we would go to the club and would take it to the DJ like, ‘Yo, let’s go hear this and see what’s going on,’” Metro Boomin said before adding: “And watch everybody’s reaction, you know, vibe out, throw some money and get everybody hype.”

Although Young Thug and Metro Boomin were unable to perform one of their go-to club playbacks for their most recent collaborations, “Trance” featuring Travis Scott, and “Metro Spider,” which appeared on HEROES & VILLIANS, it is safe to say the music on the project is well-liked by the general public based on the album’s chart position.

After the project’s release, Metro Boomin scored a significant victory because it debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 185,000 album-equivalent units in its first week.

As it has been disclosed, the producer will be producing new music for the next movie, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, and he will soon get the opportunity to test out how his music impacts spectators in theaters.

When the official trailer for the film was unveiled on Tuesday, December 13, the information was made public. Metro posted it on his Instagram page along with a picture of himself sporting his signature bandana and a Black Spider-Man outfit.

However, after the trailer debuted, co-writers and producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller hosted a YouTube Premium after-party where they revealed Metro will be writing the theme song for Across the Spider-Verse. The multi-platinum producer did not provide any information about his involvement with the movie.
