Waka Flocka Flame's brother Kayo Redd dies


The younger brother of Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame has died.

Kayo Redd was an aspiring rapper who tweeted a shout-out to his recently released mixtape, “Redd Kisses,” hours before his death Sunday night in Atlanta.

His passing was confirmed in a tweet by his mother, hip-hop manger Debra Antney, who posted the solemn comment, “I just lost another son.”

Waka Flocka, 27, also tweeted his remorse, first in a now-deleted tweet (language warning) that suggests Redd committed suicide and later in the simple posting, “Ya Big Brother love you Kayo,” with a link to 15-second video tribute. The cause of Redd's death has not been officially confirmed.

Waka Flocka, who has scored rap hits with the songs “O Let’s Do It,” “No Hands” and “Get Low,” lost another brother, Caodes, in a car accident when he was 13. In aninterview with Vibe magazine, Antney, who also manages Waka Flocka’s career, said the loss of the sibling changed Waka Flocka.

“Since my son died, that’s when [Waka] flipped. He hated everything dealing with school because my son, his death was a sneak out the house to go help a kid with his homework before his father came home so the kid wouldn’t get a beating. Waka told him to go, he’ll cover for him. So [when he was biking home and killed by a car] Waka blamed hisself. He feels very responsible for my son’s death—that’s what flipped him out,” Antney told the magazine in 2010."

The latest reports indicate that it was an apparent suicide.... :(

i hope his family is doing ok.

when i was 12 my neighbor went to the hospital for a persistent headache, while he was there he slipped into a coma then his doctor's discovered he had cancer in over 70% of his body and he died the next day.

His poor mother.

George Smitherman's husband being found dead today was another thing that really got me. Depression is evil.
