Chris Kelly dies: Kriss Kross singer who wore clothes backwards was 34

Chris Kelly died on May 1. Although not confirmed until the autopsy is finalized, the rapper who reached fame in the 1990s as half of the group known as Kris Kross is said to have passed away due to an overdose. This happened in Atlanta.

According to the Press Association via Yahoo! News UK, Georgia's Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office will conduct the 34-year-old artist's autopsy on May 2. Meanwhile, MyFoxAtlanta via OMG! Yahoo reports that "the performer was found unconscious in his home" and pronounced dead at 5:33 p.m., ET, at Atlanta Medical Center South.

Chris Kelly was teamed with Chris Smith when their 1992 hit called "Jump" jumped to the top of the charts and spent eight weeks as part of the illustrious Billboard Hot 100. It wasn't long after that that Kris Kross was welcomed as the opening act for Michael Jackson on his legendary Dangerous World Tour.

The team's quirky signature look of wearing their clothes backwards caught on around the world. The two were an attractive mix of kid talent and pop culture power as far back as when Jermaine Dupri plucked the young teens out of obscurity at the beginning of the 1990s.

It was at an Atlanta mall that Kelly, who was called Mac Daddy, and Smith, who was called Daddy Mac, were discovered by Dupri, a rap music powerhouse. As Kriss Kross, the duo debuted their "Totally Krossed Out" album which ultimately went multiplatinum. Unfortunately, their next effort called "Da Bomb" did not go so sky high and neither did their "Young, Rich and Dangerous" album which was released in 1996.

After what was called a 21 year hiatus, Kris Kross came together this past February for Jermaine Dupri's So So Def 20th anniversary party when Chris Kelly and Chris Smith once again teamed up to deliver their finest hour of music. Sadly, an encore of that night is no longer a possibility now that Chris Kelly has died.

RIP, Chris Kelly, RIP.
