Kayo Redd was found dead on Sunday according to TMZ on December 30. The little brother of rapper Waka Flocka recently released a mixed tape called "Redd Kisses" and was in the process of promoting it when found.
The official cause of death is still unknown and is pending autopsy. Preliminary reports are mixed, some saying he died in a shooting and others suggesting possible suicide.
Kayo Redd's death was confirmed by his mother, Debra Antney, on December 30 when she tweeted the following, "I just lost another son." She is referencing another brother of Waka Flocka who died in a car accident when Flocka was just 13-years old.
Waka Flocka also tweeted about his brother's death, saying "Ya Big Brother love you Kayo." Kayo was also a member of Waka Flocka's Brick Squad Monopoly Crew.
It is unclear why a young man with so much promise and the release of brand new music might even consider suicide. His autopsy is expect to be done by Tuesday.
