Waka Flocka's brother, Kayo Redd, passes away

Last night, the up and coming Atlanta rapper, Kayo Redd, passed away. The cause of death has yet to be determined, although there is speculation between suicide and a possible shooting that took place in Redd’s old neighborhood. The rapper’s last tweets were promoting his mixtape, Redd Kisses, that he dropped during the summer. His death was then confirmed by Waka Flocka and his mother, hip-hop producer Debra Antney, via Twitter. Antney, who had a child that died years ago in a car accident, tweeted, “I just lost another son.” Nicki Minaj, who was previously managed by Antney and is a friend of Waka’s, posted on her Instagram,”Devastated by the loss of this precious soul… Always so sweet to me… I cant even… Sending prayers and all my love to Deb, Waka, Wooh, Quam, Big Joe, Bimmy, the entire fam… Gone too soon Kayo… Gone way too soon.”
