Waka Flocka Flame

*Waka Flocka is using his platform for good.

On Tuesday, the Mollywood rapper declared on Twitter that he was going to dedicate his life to mental illness.

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.
