Metro Boomin electrifies GQ x ESPN NBA Finals Watch Party in New York City!

On Thursday (June 6) the GRAMMY-nominated producer kicked off the exclusive GQ x ESPN NBA Finals watch party with a crowd-pleasing performance before the highly anticipated matchup between the Boston Celtics and Dallas Mavericks. The invite-only event drew some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry, including Quavo, Damar Hamlin, Leon Thomas III, and Kayvon Thibodeaux, according to a press statement.

Metro Boomin, known for his chart-topping hits and collaborations, stormed the stage to perform “Superhero” and a slew of other hits from his extensive catalog. Later, joined by special guests Swae Lee, Offset, and A Boogie Wit da Hoodie, guests were treated to fan favorites like “Ric Flair Drip,” “Sunflower,” and “Bad and Boujee.” The night culminated with a show-stopping performance of “Calling” by Swae Lee and A Boogie, featured on Metro’s acclaimed Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse soundtrack.

The celebration, held in partnership with ESPN and ABC, also included an electrifying commercial for the NBA Finals featuring Metro’s hit “Runnin Out of Time” with Future. The event celebrated the first game of the NBA Finals series, which aired at 8:30 p.m. ET on ESPN and ABC, and wrapped up with a lively toast to cement an unforgettable night.

The year 2024 has been packed with wins for the diamond-certified producer, DJ, and artist, thanks to two joint albums—”We Don’t Trust You” and “We Still Don’t Trust You”—with longtime collaborator Future. The projects, which ignited ongoing debates about the rap game’s elite, quickly found success on the charts, both debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

With dozens of hits and 52 Billboard Hot 100 entries, Metro Boomin’s discography includes quintuple-platinum “Jumpman” by Drake and Future, and 14x Platinum “Congratulations” by Post Malone. He also has three #1 debuts on the Billboard 200, including Not All Heroes Wear Capes and HEROES & VILLAINS. In 2024, he scored GRAMMY® nods for “Producer of the Year” and “Best Rap Album,” continuing his streak of success. In other words, we anticipate more greatness to come.
