American rapper Waka Flocka Flame has been hit with another personal tradgey.

The 27 year-olds younger brother Kayo Redd was found dead in Atlanta, Georgia, on Sunday (Dec 29th).

Kayo, real name Caodes Scott, allegedly committed suicide after he died from a fatal self-inflicted gun-shot wound, reports TMZ.

The gossip website claims law enforcers informed them that foul play was ruled out of the death as they believe he took his own life.

On the same day of his death, Kayo, who is an aspiring rapper, was promoting his upcoming mixtape called 'Redd & Kisses', "Make Sure You Go Vote & Download My Latest Mixtape Redd Kisses, #YNS #ReddKisses," read his final tweet.

Kayo's mother, Debra Antney, confirmed her son's death on December 30th when she tweeted, "I just lost another son."The mourning mom is referring to Flocka's other brother who died in a car crash when he was 14 years-old.

Flocka posted a very distressed tweet about his little brother, which also seemed to confirm the cause of death was a suicide, but this was later deleted.

He also posted, "God please bless me," and several hours later, he added, "Ya Big Brother love you Kayo" and posted a 15-second slide-show of Redd.

Unfortunately Waka isn't new to personal tragedy, his best friend Slim Dunkin was murdered in December 2011. A few months later he spoke to MTV about Slim's death.

"My dog ain't pass," Waka Flocka Flame said. "I ain't accepting that. You know that shit is gonna carry with me, though, because he's me and I'm him. Together we're Brick Squad."
