Kriss Kross’ Chris “Mac Daddy” Kelly will be laid to rest on Thursday (May 9) in his hometown of Atlanta, GA. The funeral service, which will be handled by Murray Brothers Funeral Home, is scheduled to take place at Jackson Memorial Baptist Church. However, for those wishing to pay their last respects to the late rapper, a public viewing will be held beginning Wednesday (May 8) afternoon.
The 34-year-old former teen sensation died on May 1 after he was found unresponsive in his home. His mother and other close friends say he struggled with drug use and believe a combination of the drugs cocaine and heroin, known on the street as “speed balls,” are what killed the beloved “Jump” rapper. An autopsy ruled out foul play in the death. The official cause of death is still pending toxicology results.
