It’s always strange when someone from your childhood dies. It’s even stranger when someone fairly close to your own age is the person who is dead. I was never a big hip-hop fan, but I think anyone in their early 30’s remembers Kriss Kross fondly, if only for their amazing Sprite commercial and distinctive style of wearing their clothes backwards. Well a piece of 90’s nostalgia has passed on. Chris Kelly AKA Mac Daddy from Kriss Kross, has passed away at age 34. He was found unresponsive in his Atlanta, Georgia home, and was pronounced dead at a Fulton County hospital.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VtMji36lOQM
Amazingly, Chris Kelly and Kriss Kross partner Chris “Daddy Mac” Smith only recently performed together after time away from the music industry. The two performed for the 20th anniversary of So So Def Records, the label of southern rap mogul Jermaine Dupri. Dupri is the man who discovered Kriss Kross in an Atlanta-area mall and made them teenage superstars.
