Metro Boomin Is Starting His Own Label Metro Boomin.  

Metro Boomin has revealed that he is starting up his own record label as a way of sharing "new sounds and new vibes" with people. Young Metro shared the news in a new interview with GQ. On the subject of being seen as an influential tastemaker he said, “I’m heavily influenced by a lot of people like Dre, Pharrell, and Kanye. They’re all big time tastemakers and trendsetters, just for culture, period. So I strive to do that as well. I’m starting my label up, so of course I’m going to keep bringing new things to the table: new artists, new sounds, and new vibes for people to love and live with.”


Elsewhere in the interview Metro revealed an unlikely early influence, Green Day. "When I started making beats back then, they had that shit out, American Idiot," he said. "Just the sonics of that shit. That whole dark, moody vibe. I naturally, when I make beats, aim for a darker tone just because I've always preferred those types of feelings."
