The Metro Boomin-produced soundtrack Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse features a universe of hip-hop elites. Similar to his Heroes & Villains rollout, the 29-year-old producer announced his Spider-Verse collaborators with a slew of cartoons depicting each featured artist, including Future, Lil Uzi Vert, Swae Lee, Offset, JID, and more.
While Swae Lee and Coi Leray both appeared on 2018’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse soundtrack, additional newcomers to the franchise are Nav, Toian, Beam, Ei8ht and A Boogie Wit da Hoodie. The previous soundtrack was just as hip-hop oriented, based on tracks that protagonist Miles Morales/Spider-Man would listen to throughout the 2018 flick.
Last winter marked the release of Metro’s long-awaited sophomore album, which was accompanied by an action-packed short film that was narrated by and guest-starred Morgan Freeman.
In March, Metro, legal name Leland Wayne, spoke to Flaunt Magazine about being raised on Spider-Man films and the importance of adding to the franchise’s musical legacy.
“As a family, we always grew up, went to all the Marvel movies as a family thing. Every single movie, we were big on going to the movies period,” he said. “That was one of the things we’ve always done, between my mom, my brothers and sisters. Marvel’s always been huge. My little brother and sister, the youngest, they’re eight and 12. They’re the biggest Marvel fans in the world. They loved the first Spider-Verse movie so being able to do this, it’s full circle and I take with what a great deal of responsibility to deliver.”
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will make its theatrical debut on June 2.
