Hupy & Abraham, a Milwaukee based law firm that offered a $2,500 reward for anyone with information in the unsolved slaying of R&B singer Yolanda “LaLa” Brown, has doubled its offer to $5,000.

JeTannue “Kool Aid” Clayborn, Milwaukee’s hottest producer, teamed up with Yolanda “La La” Brown  before the pair met their untimely end in a bedroom above a recording studio.

“La La”  burst onto the music scene in Milwaukee, Wis., in 2006, seemingly on her way to the stardom she’d aspired to her entire life. She’d recorded a single that cracked Billboard’s Urban Top 10 and started collaborating with local producer Je ‘Taunne “Kool-Aid” Clayborn.

“She’d make up her own thing — write her music, just like that,” La La’s mother Maria said. “She just had a beautiful voice.”

Kool-Aid also had local buzz surrounding his work and had come far in his quest for success, building his own studio – Loud Enuff Productions.

“That’s all he lived for. Music was his life,” V100 disc jockey Reggie Brown said. “He always talked about new keyboards and equipment. Very talented young man.”

La La and Kool-Aid started working together in 2007, and the working relationship turned into a romantic one over that summer. La La moved the studio Kool-Aid called home, and they spent their days recording music and working on making record industry contacts. By the fall, they were ready to shop their product around, including a song titled “I’m Gonna Give ‘Em What They Want.” Unfortunately, the talented couple wouldn’t get a chance to show off their work.

In mid-October, their families grew concerned after no one had heard from either musician for days. Kool-Aid’s brother, Anthony, went to check on them and found their decomposing bodies in the bedroom above the studio Oct. 19, 2007.

Their families have no idea why anyone would want to hurt them.

LaLa is well known for collaborating with Lyfe Jennings on his hit single “S.E.X”. She also made an appearance in the song’s video.
