"It is extremely sad and unfortunate that I lost my brother, and at this time it requires my undivided attention to my mom, my family, his kids & grandchildren. It is up to us to come together and grow stronger and support each other as we celebrate the life of Ferrell Wayne big brother and also my biggest inspiration. We all fight or have disagreements [in this world], but no argument is ever worth the life of a human being. As I move forward, my success is dedicated to him as I carry out our family legacy.”

"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 wrote alongside a throwback photo of him, Miles and their parents. 

He continued: "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."
