Atlanta producer Ensayne Wayne was shot and killed in Northwest Atlanta over the weekend. He was just 49 years old.

According to FOX5, Wayne (born Ferrel Miles) was shot multiple times, including at least once in the chest, after being involved in a gun battle.

The shooting occurred near the House of Fresh clothing store on Howell Street, after which the suspect fled the scene. House of Fresh, which was founded by Drumma Boy (Wayne’s older brother) last October, was open during the time of the shooting.

Wayne was the elder brother of platinum producer Drumma Boy. He, himself, produced for artists such as Three 6 Mafia, Xzibit and Young Dro.

Drumma Boy said that his brother was the one who introduced him to beat making in an Instagram post honoring Wayne. “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,” Drumma Boy wrote in the caption.

Our condolences go out to the Miles family and loved ones.
