Chris Kelly, half of the 1990s kid rap duo Kris Kross who made one of the decade's most memorable songs with the frenetic "Jump," has died, and authorities say they are investigating his death as a possible drug overdose.
Investigator Betty Honey of the Fulton County Medical Examiner's office said the 34-year-old Kelly was pronounced dead around 5 p.m. Wednesday at the south campus of the Atlanta Medical Center.
Cpl. Kay Lester of the Fulton County police said "it appears it may have been a possible drug overdose."
An official cause of death is pending an autopsy.
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.

I don't know what's worse... Chris Kelly dying, me finding out from Shawn, or Shawn sourcing Fox News....

In all honesty though, I loved Kris Kross when I was a kid. I was 7 when that song came out. I had the cassette! RIP Mac Daddy.

Man that's wiggidy wiggidy wack!

I remember when I was a little boy, I once put my jeans on backwards and stood in front of the mirror. Thank God I decided not to leave my room that way, but I do remember trying it after seeing these guys on TV. Rest in peace, 34 is way too young.

Never a big fan of the song or the group. Its always sad to see someone pass away tho. I'd never be caught wearing my clothes like that. Stupid fad at the time.
