Kris Kross rapper's funeral held in Atlanta
ATLANTA (AP) — Mourners, including some well-known musical artists, are gathering for the funeral of former Kris Kross rapper Chris Kelly in Atlanta.
Kelly's funeral is set for Thursday afternoon at Jackson Memorial Baptist Church. The 34-year-old was found dead May 1 of a suspected drug overdose.
Kriss Kross was introduced to the music world in 1992 by music producer and rapper Jermaine Dupri after he discovered the pair at Greenbriar Mall in southwest Atlanta. Kelly performed alongside Chris Smith, who known as "Daddy Mac." The duo wore their clothes backward as a gimmick, but they won over fans with their raps.
Their first, and by far most successful song, was the 1992 hit "Jump," which became a No. 1 smash in the United States and globally.
