Chris Kelly, best known as “Mac Daddy” of ’90s Hip Hop duo Kriss Kross, has reportedly died.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Kelly was found unresponsive in his home on Wednesday (May 1) afternoon.
Kelly was transported to Atlanta Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
Kriss Kross was a child Rap duo consisting of Kelly and Chris “Daddy Mac” Smith. Kriss Kross landed a smash hit with 1992’s “Jump,” which featured the group’s trademark backwards outfits.
The former So So Def act reunited to perform at the label’s 20th anniversary all-star concert in Atlanta.
Kelly revealed in a January 2013 interview with Yahoo! that he had gone to school to be a music engineer. “I just wanted to do something different,” he explained. “Get more on the technical side of things than just being an artist, and produce. I just wanted to be [the] all around best I could be as far as doing everything.”
Kelly was 34 years old.
