Screen Shot 2014-01-07 at 9.51.49 AMKayo Redd, Waka Flocka Flame’s younger brother, was laid to rest on Saturday. This was such a sad situation for the city of Atlanta and the Hip Hop Community in addition to the fact that no parent should have to bury not one but two of her children. Kayo’s mom (Deb Antney) asked that no one wear black because “Kayo was full of life and color” and it appears most people obliged.

Screen Shot 2014-01-07 at 9.53.46 AMKayo’s music was played at the service along with a montage of pictures of his young life. Several hundred friends, family and fans attended the Home Going Services which took place at Andre 3000’s mama church Wings’s of Faith. After the service the crowd went to the city of Riverdale where Aunt Deb shut down several streets as they walked in a procession behind a horse-drawn carriage carrying the body of Kayo.

Kayo was someone who always went above and beyond to take care of his family and friends. The service was very touching and sad that Kayo death was a result of suicide. His death will not be in vain. He life has taught me quite a bit about bullying. Always check on your folks and make sure they are ok and also don’t let time-lapse without telling people you love and care about that you love them!

Kayo’s mom, Debra Antney, a high-powered hip hop manager, led the march which was set to the beat of a small drum corps. This has to be one of the strongest women I know. Debra Antney along side Chef Ashley planned the funeral and all of their Family from NYC can in support. After the young rapper’s body was laid to rest, Debra Antley released white doves into the sky saying, “You’ll always be my baby.” The rest of the crowd followed by releasing white, pink and orange balloons.
