The family of Kayo Redd, younger brother of Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame, have confirmed his death from an apparent suicide.
Late Sunday evening, Waka Flocka was the first to break the news Sunday through his Twitter account.
“MY FUCKING LIL BROTHER KILLED HISSELF FUCKKKKKKKKK LIFEEEEEEE,” said Flocka in a tweet that was later deleted.
Less than an hour later, their mother Debra Antney also confirmed the news.
In recent years, Kayo Redd had appeared on Brick Squad related projects and released several mixtapes of his own (YNS: The Rise Of The Sykho Soulja, YNS 2: Full Time Grind). Antney also lost her youngest son Caodes in 2000, who died after being struck by a car while on his bike.
At press time, further details on Kayo Redd’s death have not been released. BeatsBoxingMayhem will update this story as more information becomes available.
