The late rapper, whose real name is LePreston Porter, was 36.
According to ABC 13, the artist was found in a ditch next to an SUV with a gunshot wound to his neck. Wild’s death was confirmed on his Instagram page on Feb. 26.
Houston police told ABC 13 it appeared the SUV accidentally backed into a ditch, an argument occurred as another vehicle pulled up and “one shot” went off. Texas police found Porter shot around 2 p.m. on Feb. 25.
Wild’s breakout 2014 single “Yayo” featured Yo Gotti, who signed the artist to his CMG label. “Made Me,” also released in 2014, featured Atlanta rapper K-Camp.
Porter is the latest rapper to have been gunned down and one of the most commercially successful Memphis rappers to get shot and killed since Young Dolph in November 2021.
