ATLANTA, Dec. 30 (UPI) -- Aspiring Atlanta rapper Kayo Redd, the younger brother of hip-hop star Waka Flocka Flame, has died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, TMZ reported.

Few details about the artist, such as how old he was, were immediately available. His real name was Caodes Scott.

The Henry County Police Department told TMZ Monday Scott's body was discovered Sunday night in the Georgia subdivision where he lived.

His death is being categorized as a suspected suicide, but will not be determined until an autopsy is complete, the celebrity news website said.

"I just lost another son," Deb Antney -- Redd's mother, a music manager -- said on Twitter Sunday evening.

"God please bless me," Flame tweeted, along with a slide show of photos featuring his younger brother. "Ya Big Brother love you Kayo."

Antney previously revealed another of her sons died in a car accident when Flame was 13, MTV News said Monday.
