Metro Boomin just dropped his sophomore album, "HEROES & VILLAINS," after a 4-year hiatus ... and the superproducer channeled a classic rock album to gift wrap the project.
The album cover finds Metro paying homage to Pink Floyd's 1975 album "Wish You Were Here" ... famous for its depiction of a man shaking another man's hand as he's smothered in flames.
Metro alluded to the fiery imagery on his Instagram writing, “must be [two] sides” ... and flames appear to be the motto this go around.
The album's promotional trailer doubled as a mini-movie starring Morgan Freeman and LaKeith Stanfield ... with its premise largely being about LS burning down the city of Metropolis.
21 Savage, Travis Scott, A$AP Rocky, The Weeknd and even incarcerated YSL superstars Young Thug and Gunna make appearances.
Waiting for your permission to load Spotify album.
Looks, and sounds, like we have a late entry in the 2022 "best album" debate!!!
