Following the incline of Red Box, Netflix and Hulu now only one blockbuster exists today, located in Bender, Oregon. Metro Boomin used his 28th birthday celebration to embody popular movie characters while remembering Blockbuster.

This event, like any great film, was full of stars.It is no secret that the music producer's birthday bash brought out black Hollywood's finest. The exclusive guest-list included artists such as Young Thug, 21 Savage, Latto, and G Herbo, all of which Metro has produced for previously. Latto was spotted dressed as Justice, Janet Jackson’s leading role from the 90’s classic film Poetic Justice. G Herbo took a different approach and dressed as Mike Epps character Baby Powder from the 2001 film How High. The birthday boy himself Metro dressed as Will Ferrell's famous character Ricky Bobby from the 2006 comedy Talidega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby. It is safe to say that Boombuster was a hit, just like the chart topping songs he produces.
