Kayo Redd, the younger brother of Waka Flocka Flame, was killed in Atlanta
This is a trying time in hip hop, a little over a day after it was revealed Doe B was shot and killed, another emcee has met the same fate. If there was ever a time to start praying, the time is now. The latest victim is Kayo Redd, who is the brother of popular Atlanta rapper, Waka Flocka Flame.
Kayo Redd was fresh off the release of his Red Kisses mixtape and was promoting it on his Twitter only hours ago. Musically, Kayo Redd was preparing for his own break into the mainstream hip hop world. The whole BSM camp had a big year planned.
There are conflicting reports about Kayo Redd, with one stating he was shot while visiting his old neighborhood in Atlanta. The other report claims Kayo Redd committed suicide, but either situation is painful, especially so close to Christmas and New Year’s. Debra Antney, Kayo Redd’s mother, confirmed his death on Twitter.
