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