Up and coming Atlanta producer Metro Boomin is one of the most in-demand men behind the boards in Atlanta's white-hot trap scene, but it hasn't always been that way; the young man behind hits such as Future's "Karate Chop" and "Honest," as well as tracks with Gucci Mane, Young Thug, PeeWee Longway, Rich Homie Quan and Migos. In the most recent installment of MercyHope Productions' Blueprint Minute, Metro explains that it took dedication, hunger and investment to really make it as far as he's gotten in the industry.

"Sometimes I reflect on from when I was 13 to now, even my age," he says. "It's a real blessing. It's all possible, man. Just stay down and work hard."
