Man, that sucks!  I can recall being in school, boogeying down with my buddies to Jump!  Those guys were just a little younger than we were at the time, yet it still was all about fun and the fantasy of the fast life.  It seems so much of an all too harsh and all too often reality that we are reminded of how that fast life can run so quickly and into an unforgiving brick wall.

I am reading the daily headlines before turning it in for the evening, as I browse through the cnn.com entertainment page.  I get to the article that relays the details about the shocking (at least to me…) death of Chris Kelly!  He was half of the 90’s hip-hop duo Kriss Kross, famously known for their party tracks that included Jump, along with Tonite’s Tha Night and Warm It Up!

He and pal Chris Smith were really cool during the early 1990’s, as the thirteen year-0lds who rocked the hip-hop world with their boogie to the beat track Jump!  They had a couple of other hits that included Warm It Up and The Bomb, yet it mostly was Jump that made Kriss Kross famous.  The duo did become pioneers of the hip-hop industry, highlighting the involvement of youths in the game!

Right now, how Chris Kelly died has not been released to the public.  The media reports said that he was found unconscious at his Atlanta home, then rushed to Atlanta Medical Center.   He died at the medical facility’s south campus around 5 p.m..  Chris Kelly was 34 years old.

Kriss Kross was known for working with ATL hip hop pioneer Jermaine Dupri, along with standout rap artist Da Brat.  Their stage names were Daddy Mac and Mac Daddy!  Chris Kelly was Mac Daddy and Chris Smith was Daddy MacRest In Peace…..
