Atlanta rapper, and one half of 90’s rap duo Kriss Kross, Chris Kelly, was determined to have died of a drug overdose.  This particular cause was one that I wasn’t hoping for, but after tests have been done, it is the number one cause of his death.

Chris Kelly, better known as Mac Daddy, was found dead in his Atlanta home, May 1st of this year.  Kelly was 34 years old.  Since his death, family, friends, and fans have been wondering, “what was the cause of death?”.  It was released today, that Chris Kelly died of a drug overdose.

Atlanta investigator, Betty Honey, of the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office, said that after a toxicology screening, a mixture of drugs were found in the system of Chris Kelly.  Although Honey was unsure of the exact drugs, the test proved that drugs caused the death.  Another sad reassurance, was the comments from his mother.  Chris Kelly’s mother, informed those investigating her son’s death, that the night before his death, he was using cocaine and heroine.

To find out that Chris Kelly, of Kriss Kross died from a drug overdose, is devastating news.  Longtime friend and discoverer of Kriss Kross, Jermaine Dupri released a letter expressing his emotions on the loss.  With the release of the latest news, Dupri has not yet given his thoughts.
