The violence that’s overtaken our country-be it self inflicted or otherwise-is getting out of control. Atlanta rapper Wacka Flocka is feeling the sting of violence after learning his younger brother and aspiring rapper KayO Redd was found dead with a gunshot wound.

According to several reports, KayO Redd died sometime on Sunday, but the details are still a bit sketchy as they are still being uncovered. Some reports claim the young man shot himself, while others say he was murdered.

Waka Flocka and his mother, music manager Deb Antney, confirmed KayO Redd’s death on Twitter. Antney tweeted a very plain and simple message, “I just lost another son.” Waka Flocka asked for God’s help and mercy through this difficult time. “God please bless me,” Waka asked on the social network.

Rest in peace KayO Redd.



Waka also shared a Flipgram in memory of his brother. See it here.
