ATLANTA (July 1, 2013)—Rapper Chris Kelly of the '90s duo Kriss Kross died of a drug overdose, investigator Betty Honey of the Fulton County Medical Examiner's office in Atlanta said Monday.
Honey said a toxicology screening showed that Kelly, 34, had a mixture of drugs in his system when he was pronounced dead on May 1, but she said she did not know which specific drugs Kelly had used.
A police report says Kelly's mother told investigators her son used cocaine and heroin the night before he died and had a history of drug abuse.
Kelly, known as "Mac Daddy," performed alongside Chris Smith, known as "Daddy Mac," in the early and mid-1990s.
The duo was best remembered for the song "Jump" from their 1992 debut album, "Totally Krossed Out."
