Waka Flocka Flame’s Brother Dies In AtlantaBy: Lindsay McCane - December 31, 2013
Shortly after the holiday season, Waka Flocka Flame is mourning the death of his younger brother. On Sunday, December 30, it was confirmed that Kayo Redd had died in his Atlanta home. Conflicting reports surround the cause of his death. Some say Kayo was shot, and others point to suicide, however TMZ reports that there was no foul play involved.
Waka’s mother Deb Antney was the first to confirm the death, via Twitter. She tweeted: “I just lost another son.” Waka’s other brother Caodes was killed in a car accident when he was only 13-years-old. Antney previously talked about how Caodes’ death had impacted Waka, during a 2010 interview with Vibe magazine.
“Since my son died, that’s when [Waka] flipped. He hated everything dealing with school because my son, his death was a sneak out the house to go help a kid with his homework before his father came home so the kid wouldn’t get a beating. Waka told him to go, he’ll cover for him. So [when he was biking home and killed by a car] Waka blamed hisself. He feels very responsible for my son’s death—that’s what flipped him out,” Antney said.
Waka tweeted, “God please bless me.” He later tweeted, “Ya Big Brother love you Kayo,” along with a slideshow of pictures of him and his brother.
An autopsy will be completed within the next couple of days to determine the actual cause of death.
