Kayo Redd and Waka Flocka

Following the death of Waka Flocka’s brother Kayo Redd this past weekend, their mother Deb Antney has been struggling to make sense of the tragedy. He died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound on Sunday (December 29), which his mother addressed this week.

In a statement to HipHopEnquirer, Antney explained that Kayo was unhappy that he was unable to provide like his famous brother Waka.

“He had just left my house and he headed down the street and the next thing I knew was my son was dead,” Antney said. “My son was a good kid and I never had any problems with him. I just don’t know why he would do such a thing.”

He also had issues with his eyesight, and was scheduled to have surgery to correct it.
