- Artist: Metro City
- Track: I'm A G ft. RL
- Producer: Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins
- Album: The Situation Room
The newest R&B group to emerge on the scene (and continue the 'street R&B' trend) is Boston’s Metro City. R&B purists who complain about hip-hop's growing influence in the genre will no doubt cringe after listening to the lyrics of their new single, I'm A G. Nevertheless, if they pay a bit less attention to the lyrical content, they will take note of JY, Rey, Cyrus and 2Key's stronger-than-average vocals. With additional help from RL (of Next) and mega-producer Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins, even the principal purists should find I'm A G something they can enjoy. Metro City's debut album, The Situation Room, will be released in 2008.
