Chris “Mac Daddy” Kelly passed today at his Atlanta home of a drug overdose. Kelly was one-half of the early ’90’s hip-hop duo Kriss Kross that was known for their song “Jump” and wearing their clothes backwards. Jermaine Dupri discovered them at a shopping mall and signed them to his So So Def record label. The success of their debut album Totally Krossed Out earned them a spot on Michael Jackson’s Dangerous World Tour, television appearances and their own video game. They created two more albums that had the singles, “Alright,” “Tonight’s tha Night” and “Live and Die For Hip-Hop.” The duo split apart only finally reuniting onstage at the 2013 So So Def 20th Anniversary Celebration.
