Rest in peace to Chris Kelly, 34, aka Mac Daddy from the 90's group Kris Kross. He died last night. He was found at his home unresponsive and was pronounced dead at the hospital. According to TMZ, his death is being investigated as a drug overdose. An autopsy will be done this morning. Back in the day, there were rumors of him having cancer, which was not true at all. Chris said he had alopecia, which it was caused him to lose his hair, not cancer. The group was reunited recently to perform for their old label, So So Def reunion-style concert. I will admit I used to wear my clothes backwards as well and shhh, but I actually performed their first hit, Jump, in middle school. Yes, can you tell I was a fan?
