Looks like a smaller variety of Southern Magnolia, maybe a Little Gem. A lot going on with the tree. Hard to tell if it’s disease or cultural/environmental damage. Around here the Magnolias get leaf scorch quite often. At the very least I would carve out the grass around the trunk base and create a saucer and lightly mulch. This will prevent damage to the trunk from the mower and string trimmer.

One of my customers has a Little Gem Magnolia and at bloomed but the leaves turned completely brown and dtop
Just a guess but I'd look at what your weather has been like
Frost and drought can do that

Usually insects leave visible damage or are on the plant
