Sad: Footage Surfaces Of A Seemingly Drug-Influenced Chris ‘Mac Daddy’ Kelly Only Hours Before His Death
Last week the hip-hop world stood still when news broke that Chris “Mac Daddy” Kelly of 90’s group Kris Kross passed away. The circumstances surrounding his death were initially uncertain, as rumors that Chris suffered from a rare form of cancer had been circulating for years. Within 24 hours of his passing, a representative on behalf of the Fulton County Police Department expressed that the rapper’s death was likely the cause of an overdose. A friend of Kelly also told authorities that he’d been indulging in a combination of heroine and coke the night before.
Now, new evidence has surfaced. A video acquired by TMZ, which is said to have been taken only hours before his death, depicts Kelly with a group of friends, attempting to rap. Kelly appears to be under the influence of some sort of drug and is eerily rapping along to a song with lyrics about “a room full of dead bodies.” It’s really sad and difficult to watch, considering the seemingly drug-induced state that he’s in.
According to The Jasmine Brand, a public viewing for Kelly will be held Wednesday, May 8th throughout the afternoon and evening. Funeral services will be held Thursday, May 9th at Jackson Memorial Baptist Church. Kelly’s mother also released this statement regarding his passing:
“It is with deep sadness that we announce that our beloved Chris Kellyhas 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.”
