If you've heard Migos' "Bad and Boujee," Post Malone's "Congratulations," and Future's "Mask Off," then there's no denying the force that is Metro Boomin. The Atlanta rapper is taking his skills a step further by launching his very own record label, "Boominati."

Metro Boomin' said in a statement, "Launching Boominati Worldwide is the next step in my career as a producer, an artist and a businessman. I created the label to represent a collective of highly gifted individuals who have the shared gift of being able to influence the world through culture and art."

In the same statement, Republic Records co-founder and CEO Monte Lipman said, "Metro Boomin is a franchise player who's captured the imagination of the music community in a very short period of time. His amazing talent, competitive spirit and natural charisma will serve as the cornerstone of success for Boominati Worldwide."

In an interview with FADER last year, Metro explained that with everything going on his life he remains positive. He tried to stay nonchalant and happy. He said, "I stay positive, keep positive energy to myself. I guess I developed this habit about not really worrying about shit. But that's also one of my flaws. I feel like it's one of my flaws. But I also feel like it's one of my advantages. Because I never break down all the way and stress about sh*t. I just think about how much worse something could be and I'm like, 'Alright, cool whatever.' I'm nonchalant. If I stay negative in negative energy, that's what's gonna come back."

The talented producer will not be slowing down anytime soon. Starting early August he will be on tour with Bryson Tiller for "Set It Off Tour." Tiller and Metro will also be accompanied by H.E.R. The tour will visit many fans in Texas, Miami, Las Vegas, New York, Toronto and more.
