Chris Kelly’s Cause of Death Has Been Determined

Chris Kelly’s Cause of Death Has Been Determined

Shockwaves of disbelief struck our hearts when one half of the 90’s Atlanta rap duo, Kriss Kross, was pronounced dead around the first of May. Speculations of a possible drug overdose shrouded Chris Kelly’s untimely death with mystery as a toxicology report would not be available for weeks. Sadly, is has been confirmed Kelly did, in fact, die of an overdose.

A medical examiner’s investigator says Chris Kelly of the ’90s rap duo Kris Kross died of a drug overdose.

Investigator Betty Honey of the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office in Atlanta said Monday that a toxicology screening showed the 34-year-old Kelly had a mixture of drugs in his system when he was pronounced dead on May 1. However, Honey said she did not know which specific drugs Kelly had used.

A police report says Kelly’s mother told investigators her son used cocaine and heroin the night before he died and had a history of drug abuse.

Kelly, known as “Mac Daddy,” performed alongside Chris Smith, known as “Daddy Mac,” in the early and mid-1990s. The duo was remembered for the song “Jump” from their 1992 debut album, “Totally Krossed Out.”

This is sad, sad news. RIP Chris Kelly.
