KayO Redd, who was best known as Waka Flocka Flame’s younger brother, died in Atlanta yesterday.
There have been conflicting reports by Redd’s closest colleagues about whether it was a murder or suicide. The cause of death has not been revealed yet, but his family members Debra Antney and Waka Flocka Flame responded on Twitter. “I just lost another son,” she wrote, while Waka posted a disturbing tweet “my fucking lil brother killed hisself fuckkkkkkkk lifeeeeeee” that has since been deleted. About several hours later, he posted a 15-second highlight reel of Redd’s accomplishments.
Redd was following in the footsteps of Waka by becoming a underground force in hip-hop. In 2012, he dropped YNS 2: Full Time Grind and recently secured a radio spot on Be100 radio.
