Metro Boomin swings into the multiverse on the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse soundtrack, which he executive-produced. The second soundtrack of the Spider-Verse franchise, following 2018’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, the soundscape remains rap-oriented with legends (Nas, Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, A$AP Rocky) and newcomers (Coi Leray, JID, Don Tolliver) alike.
Boomin, legal name Leland Wayne, attended the Across theSpider-Verse premiere on Wednesday night (May 31) in Hollywood, also promoting the star-studded soundtrack. The album also follows Wayne’s fellow comic-themed sophomore album Heroes and Villains, which dropped last December.
Earlier this year, Wayne spoke to Flaunt Magazine about his family’s history of watching Marvel movies, along with the inaugural Spider-Verse film.
“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.”
Directed by Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers, and Justin K. Thompson, Across the Spider-Verse stars Shameik Moore, Hailee Steinfeld, Oscar Isaac, Daniel Kaluuya and Issa Rae. The movie, which is in theaters now, will be followed by a second part, expected to arrive in 2024.
