Metro Boomin wants to collab with Eminem

Eminem is back. The Detroit icon announced that he will be releasing his highly anticipated comeback album, The Death of Slim Shady (Coup de Grâce), this summer. Metro Boomin, who has recently started beef with Drake, expressed his desire to work with Eminem on his new album.



Metro took to X (formerly Twitter) after Eminem released the teaser trailer for his new album. The producer didn’t mince words. “Somebody please tell Eminem I’m tryna lock in,” he wrote next to three lock emojis. Metro has been one of the prolific artists in the genre for a decade, so it makes sense that he’d want to experiment. Metro has praised the Detroit rapper multiple times in the past. He hyped up Shady’s 2011 BET cypher on X. He also workshopped a “dream” album with Em in mind during a thread in January.

Metro Boomin said he wanted to create an album featuring all the rap stars of the early 2000s. One of the fans asked who he want to work with most, and he named Eminem as one of his top picks. Those who have followed Metro’s career should not be taken aback by his fandom.


While his beats sounds worlds apart from Eminem’s, the producer loves Em and Dr. Dre’s work on 2001. He told GQ that they the album was the inspiration for his own Heroes & Villains release. “You can still make great songs with artists, but as a producer, it’s like, what are you bringing. You’ve got to bring new artists. That’s a big part of your duty.” said Metro Moomin. Check his tweet below:
