It was a sea of color as rapper Kayo Redd, Waka Flocka Flame’s younger brother, was laid to rest on Saturday afternoon and RumorFix has all the details.
Kayo’s mom asked that no one wear black because “Kayo was full of life and color” and it appears most people obliged.
The musician’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 in the small Georgia town of Conley (population 6,188). The crowd literally shut down several streets as they walked in a procession behind a horse-drawn carriage carrying the body of Kayo, who died of an apparent suicide.
Kayo’s mom, Debra Antney, a high-powered hip hop manager, led the march which walked to the beat of a small drum corps.
After the young rapper’s body was laid to rest, Debra 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. Kayo was 27.
