Metro Boomin was close to his mother and has spoken of her on various occasions. In 2016, he credited his mom for his regal birth name, Leland Tyler Wayne. St Louis-born hitmaker said that the name gives himself pride in whatever profession he desired to pursue.
Metro’s mom bought him a laptop when he was in middle school. It sparked his interest in production. During his early production career, he would drive a 17-hour roundtrip along with his mother so that he could work with OJ Da Juiceman at his studio. It used to happen every weekend. In return, he had to promise stellar grades in high school.
When the news of Metro’s mother’s tragic death came out, hip-hop artists took it to social media and offered condolences to the family, and paid tribute to her.
