Waka Flocka Flame’s Younger Brother Dies

The hip-hop world has seen another tragic death a day after Atlanta Doe B was shot and killed in Alabama over the weekend. Waka Flocka Flame is mourning the passing of his younger brother, rapper Kayo Redd.

The details of Redd’s death aren’t official yet, but Waka Flocka said in a since deleted tweet that he committed suicide Sunday (Dec. 29). Redd was promoting his recently released mixtape, ‘Redd Kisses,’ hours before his death.

Waka Flocka had lost another brother in a car accident when he was 13, and he mourned the passing of Brick Squad Monopoly collaborator Slim Dunkin after he was murdered in 2011. The Queens, N.Y.,-bred rapper and his mother, Debra Antney, expressed their painful loss on Twitter and through a 15-second Flipagram video tribute. Our condolences go out to Redd’s family and friends.
