Kriss Kross’ Chris Kelly Found Dead



In a great shock to the music industry and surely his former label mates over at So So Def, Chris Kelly (Mac Daddy of Kriss Kross) was found unresponsive in his Atlanta home on Wednesday afternoon. He was later pronounced dead at Atlanta Medical Center. Kelly was only 34 years old and had recently reunited with his musical partner Chris Smith for a So So Def  20th anniversary reunion concert all but three months ago. He had dedicated a lot of his recent time to the technical side of music via sound production and engineering. Our condolences to his family and friends. May he rest in peace and his legacy live on.
