Local rapper Kayo Redd has died of an apparent suicide. Redd is the younger brother of rapper Waka Flocka Flame. Industry veteran Debra Antney announced her son's death on her social media accounts Sunday night.
Waka Flocka followed up his mother's tweet with an anguished (now-deleted) tweet indicating Redd may have taken his own life.
Producer Mona Scott-Young has apparently found a replacement for departing "Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" loud mouth K. Michelle, who is joining the cast of the LHHNY to help save that show from cancellation.
According to reality show blogger Michelle of SFtA, rapper Waka Flocka Flame and his fiancée, Tammy Rivera, are set to join the "Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" hijinks next season.
In this exclusive interview by AllHipHop.com, Debra Antney, the former manager of Gucci Mane and Nicki Minaj, discusses her former clients. I recall last year when Debra called me to defend Nicki after I wrote this post.
I have much respect for Debra because she is fiercely protective of her artists and her community. I remember our very first run-in back in my paparazzi days after I uploaded photos to Getty Images of Ludacris and his foundation giving back to the Bankhead community during Christmas 2003.
