It is never easy reporting on the death of anyone but it is especially more troubling to do so when it involves someone so young  with a promising music career ahead of him. Unfortunately, we have learned exclusively from music veteran and industry manager Debra Antney that she has lost another one of her sons,  Caodes Scott professionally known as Kayo Redd on Saturday due to a suicide via self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Debra Antney spoke with HHE’s Dennis Byron via phone moments ago and stated the following:

“He had just left my house and he headed down the street and the next thing I knew was my son was dead.” As Ms. Antney struggled through her grief to explain the last moments she remembered with her son, she expressed that her son known to many as Kayo Redd was not happy with the fact that he couldn’t help her like his brother Waka was doing as well as he was concerned about the problems with his vision.”

“My son was a good kid and I never had any problems with him.” “I just don’t know why he would do such a thing?”

Atlanta rapper Gloss Da Boss also co-hosted a radio show with Kayo Redd and she also spoke exclusively with HHE about how devastated she was when she learned he had taken his own life.” I couldn’t believe it. We were just on the air together talking about other independent artists. There was nothing in his demeanor that would have lead me to believe he would do such a thing.” He always supported my projects in the past and our relationship deeper than the radio show. He was my friend.”

The last few weeks for the the Hip Hop Community have been rough to say the least. We are now dealing with the death of Kayo Redd, brother of Juaquin Malphurs better known as Waka Flocka Flame. Waka Flocka confirmed his passing via twitter and also posted a Flipagram video.  Kayo Redd was an aspiring rapper preparing for the upcoming release of  mixtape “Badd Khemistry“, no official release date as of now.

Dayne Dash who handled booking and featuring inquires for Redd posted a picture seen here on Instagram with the caption:

“You had my back and I had yours, @whiteboytommy was never more than 2 steps away. “I love you brodie” is what you told me EVERY TIME we parted ways or got off the phone ever since Dunk passed. I’m not going to say the “rest ….” Phrase, because anyone that knows you knows that you never liked or wanted to say that. It was always “LONG LIVE”. The only word that can explain my feeling right now is disbelief. I don’t even want to say anything else right now.”

Superstar rapper Nicki Minaj posted the following to her Instagram”
