What is Red Bull's Symphonic? Metro Boomin is set to perform with a live orchestra.
Metro Boomin has had a well-rounded career so far. The producer is responsible for some of hip-hop's biggest hits, so it didn't surprise anyone when Red Bull tapped him for the collab. After all, Metro is pretty hot these days. His debut album — Not All Heroes Wear Capes — peaked at #1 on the US Billboard 200.
"I'm very excited to be part of such an amazing music moment with Red Bull. I have a deep love and appreciation for orchestral music, which can be heard in many of the records I've produced," he said in a press release (per Billboard.)
He added: "Now, with Red Bull Symphonic, we're able to reimagine a whole body of work that I'm proud of in a live show with the talent of the Symphonic Orchestra, which has always been a dream of mine that I'm finally seeing come to life."
Rick Ross performed at the event, too.
Metro Boomin's performance is the second installment in Red Bull's Symphonic series. Seeing that this is only its second year, it will be interesting to see what comes up in the future. The tickets can be found on the official website.
The inaugural show featured MMG boss and rapper Rick Ross. He put on a riveting performance accompanied by an all-Black Orchestra named Noir, the acclaimed trap choir, Sainted, and Mapy, a Grammy-winning violinist. Maestro Jason Ikeem Rodgers stepped in as conductor.
The setlist included songs like "Hustlin'," "Ima Boss," "Tears of Joy," and "The Devil Is a Lie."
