Quality Control CEO Pierre “Pee” Thomas confirmed the death by writing on Instagram, “Sad Day Bra. May God Keep Your Family.”
Miami-Dade Police Public Information Officer Alvaro Zabaleta explained to the media, “Once officers arrived is when they discovered in a Toyota 4-door that the driver was suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. Once fire rescue responded, they were able to pronounce the driver deceased here on the scene.”
“The victim, in this case, was at the intersection of 152 Street and 127th Avenue getting ready to make a right to go eastbound on 152 Street,” Zabaleta added. “When an unknown vehicle, a [grey] Lexus approached him from the driver’s side and opened fire and then fled westbound.”
Police said the grey Lexus sped off and fled the scene. MTO News learned that officials are unclear if it was a targeted shooting or a tragic case of road rage.
Wavy Navy Pooh, who was signed to the Quality Control roster, had just released a visual for “Who Want Smoke?” last month. A video for one of his bigger songs, “Money On My Head” featuring Moneybagg Yo, crossed the one million views mark on YouTube following its April 2021 release.
