He was making these beats mostly to rap over them but as time went on, he branched into full hip hop music production.
His lyrics were good even as his beats were excellent and unique. It wasn’t long before he found himself trending on some social media platforms as he started to broadcast his music and network with other upcoming musicians for possible music placement.

Who is his Girlfriend?
His girlfriend goes by the name Chelsea. They have been dating from way back in their high school days. Not much is known about her as it seems she is more like a non-celebrity kind of person.
However, since she is dating a celebrity and our own beloved Metro, we couldn’t just let her pass for lack of sufficient data on who she is. So we did some in-depth search on who she is and where she is coming from. We all know where she is heading to obviously (relationship wise)!
She used to be a Viner on the now-defunct video platform, and she also used to own a fashion website which has since seized to function. There has been no rumours or controversies following them around so we safely assumed that Metro and Chelsea are still dating.
