Exclusive Details

update_graphic_red_bar12:01 PM PT --  Police investigating Kayo's death tell TMZ all evidence now points to suicide -- a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Henry County P.D. says the body of Kayo -- aka Caodes Scott -- was discovered last night in the Georgia subdivision where he lived. The autopsy will be conducted later today.
Foul play is NOT suspected in the death of Kayo Redd -- younger brother of rapper Waka Flocka Flame -- law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Redd died over the weekend ... and so far the cause of death has not been determined ... but our sources tell us it does not appear to be a homicide.  There are unconfirmed reports Redd may have taken his own life.

Waka's mother and hip-hop manager Debra Antney confirmed the death on Twitter ... with the message, "I just lost another son." Antney also had a son who died in a car accident when Waka was 13 years old.

Waka tweeted a message yesterday, saying "Ya Big Brother love you Kayo."

Sources tell TMZ an autopsy will be performed today or tomorrow.

These peices of sh!t don't deserve the respect usually bestowed upon the deceased. How many innocent people have been victimized in one way or another by the Flocka family. Save me your righteousnes. The world is a better place today.

You friendly Black folks that think white folks are not your true enemy just read some of these comments and see how they respond to the loss of life of a person they view as being non-white.

They dressed up as Trayvon Martin for Halloween to mock the murder of a teenager, they rejoice and revel in your death and destruction so when will you wake up and recognize your true enemy and love your own people and recognize your own people as family and not your enemy.

These people hate you so stop trying to make piece with them.

I wonder if some corrupt record company run by thugs like Jay-Z or Puff Daddy screwed this guy over and took away his dream of being a rap star.

Whats more sad are the hateful comments on here just because he's....bla--A rapper. Suicide is a sad, serious topic. Would it be less negative remarks if it were the dude from Glee, Heath Ledger, or Paul Walker? #interesting

I bet some sort of "black on black" crime made this guy want to kill himself. Maybe somebody robbed him of his cash and drugs, took his girlfriend, beat him to a pulp, etc.

Who's the worst enemy of young black males out there in America? Other young black males. Not white people.
