Dec. 30 (UPI) -- Waka Flocka Flame's younger brother, aspiring rapper Kayo Redd, died in Atlanta Sunday. Redd recently released a mixtape called Redd Kisses,

Both Waka Flocka and his mother, music manager Debra Antney, posted messages of grief on social media.

"God please bless me," the 27-year-old "Hard in da Paint" rapper tweeted Sunday. He later shared a a slideshow of photos in memory of his brother.

Redd's death isn't the first tragedy to strike the family. Waka Flocka's brother and Antney's son died at age 13 in a car accident.

Antney wrote on Twitter: "I just lost another son."

Though there's little public information about the nature of Redd's death, TMZ cites sources claiming that police do not suspect foul play. Conflicting reports have suggested a possible shooting or suicide as the cause of death.
