Just read this on CNN.
Thought I just saw him on one of those VH1 shows not long ago.
Wonder what the cause of death is. Not sure I ever read of any type of illness.

Yeah, he had a darker complexion that the other Chris.

Their music is very nostalgic for me. They had just performed together recently for a Jermaine Dupri Anniversary show.

He was a rap singer. 34 is about the life expectancy for people in that genre.

When someone who works as an entertainer dies in their 30s, is the answer ever something other than "drugs?"

What an absolutely ignorant and stupid post. There are people that day at that age and younger everyday. And 'rap singer' LOL. Rappers don't sing.

Sad but never considered them as artists but more of a fad that came and went.

To be fair, he said they don't sing. There are rappers than can sing but while they are rapping, they aren't singing. If that makes any sense.

Re: Chris Kelly of Kriss Kross, dead at 34

Autopsy results for Kris Kross rapper Chris Kelly were relased on Monday. Kelly, 34, was found dead on May 1, 2013. The official cause of death: a drug overdose.

From Rolling Stone:

Betty Honey of the Fulton County Medical Examinerís office in Atlanta said the specific drugs involved in the rapperís death were unknown, but Kellyís mother told investigators of her sonís history of drug abuse, and said that he had used cocaine and heroin the night before his death.
