Chris Kelly, one half of 90's rap duo Kris Kross, has died. He was 34 years old. Kelly was found unresponsive at his home in Atlanta, the victim of an apparent drug overdose involving heroin and cocaine.
Of course Kelly, along with Chris Smith, are best known for their massive '92 hit "Jump," and their backwards clothes. At one point the duo was so popular they opened for Michael Jackson on his Dangerous tour, had their own videogame and appeared on A Different World (remember they were in the rival gangs and Dwayne and Whitley went all Lean On Me? Good times.)
While I never wore my clothes backwards, I don't know a person my age who didn't lose their minds when "Jump" or "I Missed The Bus" came on. Rest in peace Chris.
