For most of his fans. it’s no surprise that Waka Flocka holds the cause close to heart given that brother KayO Redd — who was also a rapper — tragicallycommitted suicide in 2013 at just 22 years old.
“Before my little brother killed himself, I ain’t pick up the phone,” Waka said during a 2017 interview with Vice. “I seen him call. I was like, ‘Fu*k, let me call KayO back as soon as this is over with. I call him back, no answer.”
Seems like that moment is weighing heavy on his heart. We wish Waka peace.
