Isaiah Terrell Wilson (born February 12, 1999) is a former American football offensive tackle who played one season with the Tennessee Titans of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at Georgia and was drafted by the Titans in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Since dropping out of the NFL, he has pursued a career as a rapper.

Wilson's tenure with the Titans was characterized by violations of team rules and several off-field legal issues, leading to minimal playing time and his subsequent trade to the Miami Dolphins after his rookie season. He was released by the Dolphins three days later after he refused the team's efforts to help him.[1] He signed with the New York Giants' practice squad during the 2021 season.
