Metro Boomin is opening up with his fans about the recent death of his mother.
In a series of Instagram Story posts, the Atlanta producer shared how his mom's passing, Leslie Wayne, is affecting his life. She was reportedly killed in Atlanta by his stepfather before killing himself.
The tragic incident took place back in June 2022.
“My Mom was and still is my best friend in the universe and anybody who really know me know I’ve always been a Momma’s boy my whole life,” he wrote, according to Complex. “This don’t even feel like real life no more; it’s like a nightmare that never ends, and starts over every time I wake up.”
Adding, “This gotta be what hell feel like ‘cause it’s like my soul just always burning and everything around me constantly burning.”
Wayne, who raised Metro Boomin and his three siblings in St. Louis, noticed his musical talents early and supported his goals. She drove him from their home in Missouri to Atlanta to pursue his career, including collaborations with 21 Savage, Future, Migos, Young Thug, Drake, Kanye West, and dozens of other artists.
