Miami rapper Wavy Navy Pooh was killed during what NBC Miami call an “ambush shooting” on Friday, although fortunately his two kids and companion were physically unharmed – how old was he, and what was his net worth at time of passing?

What was Wavy Navy Pooh’s net worth?

Miami rapper Wavy Navy Pooh’s net worth appears to have been somewhere between $1.5 million and $3 million.

Exact Net Worth’s estimate of $50 thousand is likely lower than the actual figure, although the figure that Tamil Echo and Vimbuzz cite may be an overestimate.

Much of Wavy Navy Pooh’s wealth is likely the dividends of his burgeoning rap career.

He signed to Quality Control Music three years ago, in 2018 or 2019; his debut album, Murder Is A Major Issue – the name of which has taken on a new meaning since his passing – “offers an introduction to the lesser-known side of Miami”.

What was Wavy Navy Pooh’s age at time of passing?

Like his net worth, Wavy Navy Pooh’s age appears to be a matter of contention. NBC Miami and CBS Local Miami refer to him as a 27-year-old; ABC News, The US Sun and Local 10 cite his age as 28; Sky News and the Daily Express reckon he is 25.

While there may be a lack of consensus as to exactly how old Wavy Navy Pooh was when he passed away, outlets agree that his children, ages 5 and 1, were physically unharmed during the attack.

Miami-Dade police detective Alvaro Zabaleta confirmed that one of Wavy Navy Pooh’s children was celebrating a birthday. There was also a woman in the car with them who was also unharmed.

What is his real name?

Wavy Navy Pooh’s real name is Shandler Beaubien. He was a hip hop artist who found the genre to be “not only a way out, but a tool for shining a much-needed light on the violence that has plagued the lives of those who couldn’t” – writes his label, Quality Control Music.

“Hip hop inspired me because I always saw a way out for people like myself coming from nothing,” QCM quotes him as saying. “I want to be a legend when it’s all said and done. I want the world to know the other side of Miami.”

His most popular track on YouTube, Money On My Head, has been viewed 1 million times. Wavy Navy Pooh’s debut album Murder Is A Major Issue is available to stream on Spotify and Apple Music and to purchase via Amazon.
