Medical Examiner: Chris Kelly Died Of Drug Overdose

(AllHipHop News) Kriss Kross rapper Chris Kelly (aka Mac Daddy) death was the result of a drug overdose according a toxicology screening. Kelly passed away on May 1 at the Atlanta Medical Center after he was found unconscious in his home.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office reported on Monday that Kelly had a mixture of drugs in his system, but they were not able to determine exactly which drugs the 34-year-old had taken prior to his death.

A police report states that Kelly’s mother told investigators that he used cocaine and heroin the night of his death. Kelly apparently struggled with drug abuse in the past.

Kelly was just recognized on Sunday at this year’s BET Awards during the show’s tribute to stars who have passed away over the last year.

Kelly was one half of the 1990’s teen rap act Kriss Kross along with Chris “Daddy Mac” Smith. The duo had a double platinum hit single with 1992’s “Jump.”
