Platinum-selling producer Ensayne Wayne reportedly was killed on Feb. 10, according to Fox5 Atlanta. The producer, who was the brother of veteran producer Drumma Boy, was reportedly shot and killed outside of an Atlanta clothing store.
Wayne, whose real name is Ferrell Miles, was reportedly nearby House of Fresh – Drumma Boy’s clothing store on a popular street in Atlanta – when he was reportedly shot in the chest multiple times. Wayne was rushed to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
Atlanta Police Lieutenant Carven Tyus claimed the shooting was the result of a previous disagreement. "The victim and the suspect produced weapons and the victim was shot as a result of that altercation," Lt. Tyus said in an official statement.
Following news of his passing, Drumma Boy and other hip-hop producers and artists posted messages on social media. "I lost the first person I ever looked up too in life," Drumma Boy said in the post on Instagram. "The first person I ever wanted to be like... My BIG blood-brother... 💉 My dad showed me the fundamentals of music & music theory, but my brother introduced me to making beats.”

I lost the first person I ever looked up too in life... the first person I ever wanted to be like... My BIG blood-brother... 💉 My dad showed me the fundamentals of music & music theory, but my brother introduced me to making beats. He paved the way for me, introduced me to everybody he could, continuously bragged about me and gave me an alternative route to take. I always just wanted to see him smile and be proud of the moves I made as well as the moves we made together. Thank you all for the condolences sent for @ensaynewayne and family. #LegendsLiveForever #RIP #EnsayneWayne
