Chris 'Mac Daddy' Kelly

For those of you who were actually live during the early 90’s, you might remember Kris Kross, the kid rap duo (“Jump”) best known for wearing their pants backwards because … well, it was the 90’s. No matter how hard BuzzFeed tries to spin it, a lot of the fads were kind of dumb. Anyway, member Chris ‘Mac Daddy’ Kelly died last night, and the police report currently suspects it might have been from an overdose of cocaine and heroine. TMZ reports …

According to the report, paramedics initially responded to Kelly’s Atlanta home around 3 PM EST — after his mother called 911 asking for medical assistance. When help arrived, paramedics found 34-year-old Kelly lying on the living room couch — unresponsive and with “no life signs.” The medics attempted to revive Kelly, to no avail. Kelly was immediately transported to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead a few hours later. After the death, cops spoke with Donna Kelly Pratt — Chris’ mother — who told police … the night before Kelly’s medical emergency, he had taken a mixture of heroin and cocaine — commonly known as “speedballs.”

R.I.P. Chris, you made the 90’s a little more interesting thanks to jumping in your backwards pants.
