R.I.P. Chris Kelly of Kris Kross

34 Year Old Chris Kelly, who along with fellow rapper Chris Smith made up the 1990s teen rap duo Kris Kross, died tonight after being found unresponsive at his home in Atlanta, E! News confirms. 

He was transported to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly after 5 p.m. According to the Fulton County Medical Examiner, an autopsy is scheduled for tomorrow and this is an ongoing investigation.

Chris' mother and The So So Def Family released a joint statement saying:
“It is with deep sadness that we announce that our beloved Chris Kelly has passed away on May 1. 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.”
