Metro Boomin's career

His real desire was to produce rap beats so he could become a rapper, but he also became a music producer which was helpful in building his incredible wealth of $8 million by the time he was just 23 years old.
He attended Parkway North High School and it was during this time that he started to make contact with rappers who had established themselves. He sent samples of his beats to companies with the potential to help him get his start.

He was fortunate to have a mom that supported his budding career and she drove him to the meetings which were frequent.
