Metro Boomin’s Mother Reportedly Killed By Her Husband After She Was Fatally Shot
Metro Boomin’s mother, Leslie Wayne,died recently. According to TMZ, her husband shot and killed her before turning the pistol on himself on Friday (June 3).
Wayne’s body was outside of Atlanta as seen by law authorities. The formal cause of death will be determined by an autopsy. There are little specifics about the shooting, but condolences for the longstanding producer and his family already flooded social media.
Metro Boomin recalls his mother driving him 17 hours from their home in St. Louis to Atlanta to meet OJ Da Juiceman, who helped him flourish as a producer, in a 2016 profile for The FADER.
Metro’s ongoing work as a producer was predicated on him maintaining his grades, so mother and son would continue to make the 17-hour travels practically every weekend. The strategy paid off, allowing him to not only attend Morehouse College for a semester, but also to build on the success of smash singles like Future’s “Karate Chop” and his collaborations with Gucci Mane.
During this tragic time, Metro’s family and his family have asked for privacy.
