One half of the 90s kid rap duo Kris Kross has died at the age of 34. Chris Kelly was found unresponsive in his home and was later pronounced dead Wednesday at the Atlanta Medical Center. Though the official cause of death has yet to be determined, a police report contains use of heroin and cocaine the night before he passed. Chris and his partner Chris Smith, who made up the other half of the rap group, were discovered by Jermaine Dupri in 1991 in an Atlanta mall. They were both 13 at the time. On behalf of all of us here at CelebTV, our thoughts are with Chris' family and friends.
