He was killed in northwest Atlanta.
He is the brother of music producer Drumma Boy who took to Instagram to release a statement.
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
