For their recent month-long festival in New York, the Red Bull Music Academy brought Zaytoven, Sonny Digital, and Metro Boomin together for a beatmakers roundtable lecture. During the in-depth discussion, the three producers each had a chance to introduce themselves and speak about their early beginnings of their careers.

Though they all came from different cities and states, each of these producers owe a lot of their success to the city of Atlanta—it’s the founding factor that ties each of them together. Zaytoven, Sonny Digital, and Metro Boomin each spoke on their upbringing, pivotal moments in their careers, and how far they’ve come thus far.
