To millions of fans worldwide, he was the trendsetting, backwards pants-wearing one-half of Kris Kross who loved making music. But to us, he was just Chris – the kind, generous and fun-loving life of the party. Though he was only with us a short time, we feel blessed to have been able to share some incredible moments with him. His legacy will live on through his music, and we will forever love him.”— Donna Kelly Pratte (mother) & The So So Def Family

Both Donna Pratte and So So Def indicated that neither would publicly comment further at this time.

    Who would have thought this guy may have been doing drugs that perhaps led to his demise? we’ll find out the truth though. And wasn’t Kriss Kross the first artists released on So So Def?

      They got jermaine his first mil. He should have locked that one away..

      • I hope it wasn’t drugs!

        I’m pretty sure homie delt with some depression. and when those pics came out a couple years ago of him with patches of hair missing on his head he put out a statement saying he had alopecia. but I’m thinking maybe he was doing chemo treatments for some sort of cancer.. but again I think homie was depressed in some way. I mean the other brother Chris smith moved on and became a engineer. I don’t think chris Kelly ever got over the kris kross days and kept that hope that one day they would be on top again… I think that’s generally the case with most child stars. one day your hanging with Michael Jackson and signing autographs out the ass, the next minute jd won’t answer your calls and your ppls are telling you it’s time to get a real job.

      • 4UMF is reporting a speedball OD, cocaine & heroin mixture.

        SMDH!
