Waka Flock allowed the cameras of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta to catch a very intimate moment pertaining to him and his family. While the show is known for sextapes, relationship issues and baby mama drama, it’s rare that it touches on a topic as sensitive as suicide.

In last night’s episode (June 9) the “Turn Down For What” rapper let fans to watch as his family mourned the loss of his younger brother KayO Redd. Redd, an up and coming underground rapper committed suicide Dec. 29, 2013 with a gunshot wound to the head before having the opportunity to break big in the music industry.

Prior to his untimely death Redd dropped a mixtape in 2012 titled YNS 2: Full Time Grind. His last tweet even promoted his work. It read, “Make Sure You Go Vote & Download My Latest Mixtape Redd.” Waka was gripped by guilt in last night’s show. Holding back emotions he expressed that he held himself  partly responsible for his brother’s death.

Touched by his family’s openness and honesty people took to Twitter offering their condolences. “Aww, that’s so sad. My condolences go out to Deb & Waka Flocka,” one person wrote on Twitter. Another added, “Aww Waka Flocka and his mum, feel sorry for them.”
