Waka Flocka Flame’s younger brother, Kayo Redd, was found dead at his Henry County home on Sunday (December 30).

Details are scarce with some reports saying the aspiring rapper was murdered, with others saying he committed suicide. Kayo Redd’s final tweets were promoting his latest mixtape, Red Kisses, which dropped this summer. Waka tweeted that his brother killed  himself before later deleting the tweet:

Waka and Kayo’s mother, Debra Antney, confirmed Kayo Redd’s death via Twitter. Waka and Nicki Minaj also mentioned his death on Twitter.

Nicki Minaj: 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.

Waka and Gucci Mane have had a very public falling out, but even Gucci sent his condolences:

Waka lost another brother, Caodes, in a car accident when Waka was 13. In an interview with Vibe magazine, Antney, who also manages Waka, said the loss of the sibling changed Waka Flocka.

“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 told the magazine in 2010.
