Rapper from the Group Kris Kross Found Dead

kriss-kross1Chris Kelly, a member of the rap group, Kris Cross, has been found dead in Atlanta.  An investigator found the 34-year old today, and he was pronounced dead at 5 pm at the Atlanta Medical Center.

Police don’t know Kelly’s cause of death as of yet, but they are conducting an investigation and an autopsy.   Kelly was the “Mac Daddy” in the famous “Jump” video that etched the group’s name into hip-hop history.  They were known for wearing their clothes backward in their performances, creating a trend that was replicated world-wide.

Kelly performed along with Chris Smith, aka Daddy Mac and their biggest album was released in 1992, “Totally Krossed Out.”

The duo also sang the “Rugrats Rap” for Nickolodeon and were discovered by Jermaine Dupri at an Atlanta shopping mall.  They signed with Dupri and Ruffhouse Records to record their first album.   “Totally Krossed Out” was entirely produced by Dupri, selling four million copes in the US.  Their top single, “Jump,” was number one on the Billboard charts for eight weeks straight.

      I remember during science class a day after our test we watched the video of jump jump. If he probably died of a heart attack then that can actually happen to a person that young like. I’m pretty sure he was living a healthy life, it just depends on the type if energy drink he might of had. Just saying. Rip Chris Kelly :(

    Sad. Usually when they say an “apparent” drug overdose it’s because he was found dead with a lot of drug use evidence around him. Too bad. Having such fame and fortune at a young age really makes the person susceptible to abusing drugs and your own body. Will anyone learn from this sad situation? Will anyone change their ways? Probably not. Soon he will be forgotten.

  5. Until the official cause of death has been known, ppl shouldn’t assume it was an overdose due to drugs. RIP Kris!!

    Far too many black people die due to drug abuse, violence, etc. We as a people could really use some therapy—there far too many issues affecting black folks to ignore…

  7. I am so shocked at this news of a young man losing life at such a young age.
    My heart felt blessings go out to all his family and friends and all who knew him.
    Wonderful powerful voice for such a little guy.
    Now rests with our heavenly father

  8. RIP never forgotten! No matter the cause or reason of your death, as long as you found your Father you will rejoice in Paradise!

  9. Dana, have you ever seen a site that boasted white pride? If you have seen the content on they post on their websites, then you’d clearly know why people call it racist. White pride should have nothing to do with destroying black people.

  10. Dana,Dana,Dana you po thang! It is very obvious that you have not a clue. As this area was created to comment on current topics, and everyone’s opinion should be respected, and, everyone has one. However, I have two.(1) Regardless, if you are an individual that can appreciate the contributions that this young man have made to the music industry or not, the very least that you can offer is a little respect. I’m not a fan of Bobby D. AKA “Hee-Haw Bob!”, who was probably his OWN GRANDPA…but, I am certain that he left loved ones behind that deserves respect and condolences in honor of his life. (2) BTW, surfed but didn’t find a “Your White World” site, buuutttt! I did there is a ” Your Stupid, Ignorant and Clueless D.A.B. World”, swing over there and check it out, you should feel very welcomed there.

  11. FATHER GOD GIVE THE FAMILY STRENGTH AT THIS TIME. CHRIS SIP.

  14. sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo sad i loved them xx

  15. Shocking -a once ten-year-old who made a ton of money by acting like a thug is found dead twenty years later.

    Also, why is it supposedly not racist for there to be a “Your Black Wold” web site but it would absolutely be considered racist were there a “Your White World” web site??? Incidentally, for those of you who are about to www dot Your White Wolrd, there is no such site.

    • Instead of sending your condolences.. you express ignorance! baggy clothing and hip hop swag… doesn’t make you a thug… Get to know a person on a personal level before you judge.. You look at photos and you read articles… and you think you know someone.. seek peace in your heart… find forgiveness for whoever.. become a better u

      • I agree EJ. In reference to the negative comment, if my memory serves me correctly, the young man had an illness at an early age. Isn’t it possible that his cause of death could be from his complications? Instead of being so quick to judge, wait until you have all the facts or better yet refrain from commenting on threads that you disagree with. If you don’t like the site, why are you here? For those of us that have fond memories of this duo, their trends, and music, this is a sad moment and time for remembrance and reflection. There are multiple pages that will welcome your lack of information, racial bias, and what seems to be prejudice. This is why we as a people will consistently take five steps back for every one positive step forward. I don’t comment on threads, but I was taken aback at the first comment that greeted me as I came to pay my respects of sorts. I know my comments won’t do any good because ignorance, hatred, and fear existed before I was born and will continue after I am long gone. I am ashamed for you, though I know you feel you have no reason to be.

    • How do you know if he was a thug? and how dare you use this forum when a man has just passed to put down your racial concerns? and how do you know what the man passed from to begin with when the media hasn’t made that determination? And why is there not a yourwhiteworld? well, Lord knows you got darn near every outlet in the world, surely you can do yourself a favor and do that instead of getting mad at us for having such a forum and get off here?

  16. Im saddened this was a kind free hearted man that loved to have a good time knowledgable about how to be a successful artist god has called yet another angel home.may you haveeternal peace friend

  17. Gone too soon….rest in paradise

  18. Wow! He really died at a young age. I hope he wasn’t sippin on that syrup! What’s wrong with our Black People check’n out so fast? We either over indulging in a toxic high or not taking care of our health. Chris Kelly was the one with the hair loss and was rumored to have cancer. Rest IN Paradise you brother.

    • Until a complete autopsy is done, lets withhold assumptions of what took his life. Ever heard of natural causes? Not every single black person dies from a drug overdose. As for cancer, depending on the stage it is in and the person’s body reaction to treatment no one knows whether an individual will completely recover from it or succumb to the disease. My suggestion Deep Entity, start thinking deep and not just scratch the surface.

      • Renee sweetheart it’s quite obvious why a 34yr old youthful Black Entertainer that performed at a So So Def anniversary would Die so soon. There’s three things it could be and those are Drug overdose, AIDS, or Cancer. You can rule out the natural cause of death and Cancer because it’s a slow process. But with Michael, Whitney and a host of other Entertainers losing their lives to Drugs and answer is simple and elementary.

        • ANXIOUS TO KNOW BLACK AMERICAN!

          DEEPENTITY! When any of them get to this point where they can be a positive force in effecting positive change IN OUR RACE AND CHOOSE DRUGS I personally feel dying was the only positive thing they ever did! Whitney Houston and now her dumbass drug addict daughter wil follow suit very soon believe me! I hope others like them who are nothing but walking cancers all go soon! If I saw any of them and a bear in a fight I would help the bear!

        • ANXIOUS TO KNOW BLACK AMERICAN!

          IT IS A DAMN SHAME ON OUR RACE TO SEE SO DAMN MANY OF YOU BLACK ASS FOOLS EXPRESSING SUPPORT, SYMPATHY AND OTHER POSITIVER THINGS TO THIS IDIOT, WHITNEY HOUSTON, HER DAUGHTER SOON TO FOLLOW AND OTHERS LIKE MTHEM I HOPE; WHEN NONE OF YOU ARE CRYING OUT AGAINST ALL THIS BLACK ON BLACK CRIME! SOME OF YOU SAME HOOD RSATS WERE PROBABLY SOME OF THOSE CRITICS ABOUT GABRIELL’S HAIR DURING THE OLYMPICS AS OPPOSED TO SUPPORTING AND BEING HAPPY FOR HER! WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU HBLACK FOOLS? SPEND YOUR, TIME, EFFORTS, MONEY AND OTHER RESOURCES TRYING TO TURN US AROUND! READINF ALLL THIS CRAP JUST MAKE ME WISH MORE OF YOU WERE DECEASED!

      TIA! Won’t or can’t you and others of your ilk remember the positive things and our people who did so much and even died to make it possible for PIECES OF DOG CRAP LIKE HIM, WHITNEY HPOSTON AND ALL TOO MANY OTHERS LIKE THEM TO RISE TO SUCH LOFTY HEIGHTS WORLD WIDE, FINAMNCIALLY ONLY TO SUCUMB TO THE USE OF DRUGS! Are there any of you assholes who remember the deeds and deaths of Dr. Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, Dr. Charles Drew, Viola Lieuzzo, Emmett Till and countless others of various races who died to help our struggle! WHEERE WERE YOU DUMB BAS..R.Ds when that piece of shit Lil Wayne desecrated the legacy of Emmett Till? IT IS SO SAD TO SEE SO MANY OF YOU HAVE NO CLUE AT ALL OF WHERE YOUR PRIORITIES SHOULD!
