Kendrick Lamar, Big Sean Hit the Studio with Metro Boomin

From Kanye West to Future to Drake, Metro Boomin has worked with hip-hop’s biggest names, and now he’s expanding his portfolio with another superstar client—Kendrick Lamar.

During a recent interview with BBC Radio 1 (via Miss Info), the 22-year-old Atlanta producer confirmed that he has been in the lab with the Grammy-winning rapper.

“I met Kendrick and we were in the studio. He picked a bunch of beats out,” said Metro Boomin. “That was great. He’s a great guy, we vibed out for the day.”

K-Dot isn’t the only MC who’s been logging sessions with the “Jumpman” producer. He also announced that he has “been working on a bunch of stuff for Big Sean’s new album.”

These exciting announcements follow somber news last week. After Bankroll Fresh was shot and killed in Atlanta, Metro mourned the tragic loss of his friend on Instagram.

“They took my brother Fresh and I’m hurt right now,” he wrote. “very hurt. hurt is the only thing that’s been on my mind and heart since I was in magic last night. hurt was on my mind and heart when I woke up this morning. u always wanted to see ni**as do good and be good. u used to tell us that once you good then we good and that you would do things the right way and not like the rest of these ni**as. I’m hurt that this music shit has made everything so different and affected all of my personal relationships because of the high demand of work and the stress.”


they took my brother Fresh and I'm hurt right now. very hurt. hurt is the only thing that's been on my mind and heart since I was in magic last night. hurt was on my mind and heart when I woke up this morning. u always wanted to see niggas do good and be good. u used to tell us that once you good then we good and that you would do things the right way and not like the rest of these niggas. I'm hurt that this music shit has made everything so different and affected all of my personal relationships because of the high demand of work and the stress. but you were one of the few niggas that understood and still gave full support. I miss how fun and natural this shit used to be, before it felt like as much of a job as it does now. I miss recording songs at the house all night and u would just stay and sleep on the couch because you wanted to win as bad as I wanted to win. I hate how we did less and less as we both were getting more and more success. we were both so busy and never could even be in town at the same time anymore. But through that you were still genuinely happy for me as much as I was for you. I've worked so much over the years and neglected my personal life so much that I feel alone at times now. I shoulda been there and you shoulda been here. I didn't even wanna do all this Instagram typing shit but Love your family and friends and never take them for granted. Call them and stop texting and tweeting all the fucking time. I'm only 22 and still growing and learning life. Fuck all that sad shit tho man I love u bra and will always appreciate your love support from day1. #LONGLIVEFRESH
