CHRIS Kelly has died at the age of 34.
The star — half of the 1990s kid rap duo Kris Kross who made one of the decade’s most memorable songs with the frenetic Jump — was pronounced dead around 5 p.m. Wednesday at the south campus of the Atlanta Medical Center.
Investigator Betty Honey said authorities are unsure of Kelly’s cause of death and that an autopsy has yet to be performed.
Kelly, known as “Mac Daddy,” and Chris Smith, known as “Daddy Mac,” were introduced to the music world in 1992 by music producer and rapper Jermaine Dupri after he discovered the pair in an Atlanta mall. The duo wore their clothes backwards as a gimmick, but they won over fans with their raps.
