Chris "Mac Daddy" Kelly Of Rap Duo Kris Kross Passes Away At The Age of 34

I'm an 80s baby who just so happened to be a huge fan of 90s rap duo Kris Kross so when I heard the news of the passing of Chris "Mac Daddy  Kelly (my crush) I was more saddened.

According to CNN, Chris died at an Atlanta hospital yesterday after being found unresponsive in his home with no word on the cause of death yet.

One CNN project coordinator Leslie Tookes actually lived next door to Chris and described him as a "low-key type of person".

"We often heard him playing classical music and the piano," Tookes said. "He was a low-key type of person who was very talented and courteous, friendly and wonderful to our 5-year-old twins.

"Indeed, gone too soon."

With this news many are saddened but the glorious part of it all he will always be remembered through his contributions to music and we're lucky that we have that to remember him by.

With that said, let's get into some music.

My heartfelt condolences go out Chris' family and loved ones. May he rest in peace.
