Bio and Family of Metro Boomin
Professionally known as Metro Boomin and also known as Young Metro or simply Metro, he is formally referred to as Leland Tyler Wayne, who was born September 16, 1993, in St. Louis, Missouri, to a family of 4 siblings. Originally he has his roots in Atlanta, Georgia. His parents’ names are Lamont Wayne and Leslie Wayne, father, and mother.
He came to music at a very young age when he played bass guitar in his high school band. Even when he attended Parkway North High School, he stuck with music.
His mother was very instrumental in this phase of his life, as it was the laptop she bought for him that allowed him to devote more creative time to making beats. Mostly 5 beats a day. He did these beats mainly to rap about it, but with time he started to produce hip-hop music.
His lyrics were good, although his beats were excellent and unique. It wasn’t long before he found himself as a trend on some social media platforms when he started to spread his music and network with other up-and-coming musicians for possible music placement.
Metro Booming was 19 years old when he released his first mixtape called 19 & Boomin, a pretty creative title! Two more albums followed, and so we had Perfect Timing and Savage Mode. Over the years Metro has worked with the top shots in the industry like Gucci Mane, Nicki Minaj, Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa, Ludacris, etc. He was also the executive producer for the joint mixtape of Drake and Future in 2015 entitled What a Time to Be Alive. His hard work was not without recognition, as he was named Producer of the Year 2016 at the BET Hip Hop Awards.
Metro Boomin’s Net Worth
His net worth is estimated at 6 million dollars, mainly due to the success of his music career. This estimate is not expected to remain static for long, as the star is expected to release more hits in the coming months. For him, his wealth is all about his music.
Who is his Girlfriend?
His girlfriend is named Chelsea. They date back to her high school days. Not much is known about her since she seems to be a person without celebrity.
However, since she is with a celebrity and our own beloved Metro, we couldn’t just let her go since we didn’t have enough data about who she is. So we researched thoroughly who she is and where she comes from. We all know where she is going (in terms of the relationship)!
She used to be a Viner on the now-defunct video platform, and she also owned a fashion website that is now up and running. There were no rumors or controversies that followed her, so we could safely assume that Metro and Chelsea are still together.
