The ATL-based producer dropped by Radio 1.

Metro Boomin joined Benji B in the studio last week where he discussed working with Future, Kanye and a studio session with Kendrick Lamar.

“Future’s my brother and I love him,” said Metro Boomin on the pair’s relationship. “He’ll go to the studio and do seven songs every day but he doesn’t like to pick his own music out,” he added.

Metro started sending Future beats while he was still at high school and then began hitting the studio with him when he he moved to Atlanta in 2012.

Discussing his input on Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo, Metro Boomin said: “I was blessed to be able to work on three songs on there.”

“I’ve always admired his creativity and how he’s never scared to just go wherever with it,” he said, praising Kanye as one of his “top inspirations.”

Metro explained that that he knocked out the drum parts for TLOP track ‘FML’ in his LA hotel room just before he was due to catch a flight.

He also revealed that he has been working on “a bunch of stuff with Kendrick Lamar,” as well as helping out on Big Sean’s new album. Hear the full interview.
