Waka Flocka has found a new purpose in his life!

The rapper-turned-reality TV star took to social media on Memorial Day to announce he is dedicating his life to suicide prevention and mental health.

I’m officially dedicating my life to suicide prevention and mental illness!!! Y’all not alone Waka Flocka Flame is with y’all now!!!!

See his original tweet below:

In 2013, Waka Flocka’s younger brother, Kayo Redd, died from an apparent suicide. 

Understandably, suicide prevention is a cause that is near and dear to Waka’s heart.

I salute and appreciate him for using his influence for something that could potentially save lives.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month.
