Chris “Mac Daddy” Kelly of the 90’s rap duo Kriss Kross has died at age 34.

Kelle was found in his Atlanta home and was unresponsive on May 1st. He was then transported to an Atlanta medical center, where he was pronounced dead around 5 p.m.

The cause of death is unknown at this time. An autopsy has yet to be performed.

Kelly, in a January 2013 interview with Yahoo!, said that he went to school to become a music engineer. Kelly said: "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 and his Kriss Kross partner, Chris “Daddy Mac” Smith reunited at the So So Def labels 20th anniversary celebration in Atlanta. 

Below is the video of Kriss Kross’ best known single, the 1992 hit “Jump”.


We here at PopWrapped offer our sincerest condolences to the friends and family of Chris Kelly during this difficult time.
