Kris Kross rapper dead

by +Brad Naylor

Kross dressing rapper Chris Kelly (34) died yesterday in an Atlanta hospital of a suspected drug overdose. Kelly and his rap partner, Chris Smith will forever be synonymous with the 90's rap anthem, Jump. They were easily recognizable due to their penchant for wearing their clothes back to front which I called "Kross Dressing" way back when they first hit the scene.

Back in the mid nineties, Chris and Chris tried to launch a fan club called the Kris Kross Klub, which was later closed down due to the number of white southern members wanting to meet their 'heroes' and show them their own crosses.

While Chris was being treated at the Atlanta hospital, nurses had to constantly remind him not to wear his hospital gown back to front so that other patients didn't start singing, "Don't wanna see your... Junk, Junk."

Chris's body will not be released for burial until a post mortem has been conducted and a cause of death has been established. This gives the undertaker time to prepare the casket so that he is not placed in it back to front.

The Kris Kross song 'Jump' should not be confused with this much better song from the same year, 'Jump Around' by House of Pain, the best white Irish rappers in the business.

Jump Jump in Peace Chris Kelly.
