Friends and family will gather this week to mourn for fallen rapper Chris Kelly. The Murray Brothers Funeral Home in Atlanta will hold a viewing for Kelly on Wednesday, May 8th from 1:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Funeral services for the late Kris Kross rapper will be held the next day, May 9th, at 2:00 p.m at Jackson Memorial Baptist Church. Chris Kelly — who went by the nickname “Mac Daddy” — passed away last Wednesday. An autopsy revealed that there were no signs of trauma or foul play. However, authorities are awaiting a toxicology report before declaring a cause of death.
Last week, Kelly’s other half in Kris Kross — Chris Smith — released a statement saying that Kelly was “like a brother” to him. Smith — who was known as “Daddy Mac” — went on to recount the beginning of his friendship with Chris Kelly. Smith added that he will “always cherish the memories of the C-Connection.”
TMZ has the sad footage hours before his death, of a drugged out Kelly attempting to rap and spit out lyrics about a room full of dead bodies.
The video — shot in Kelly’s Atlanta home around 7:00 AM on May 1 — is a window into the life of a drug addict. There’s crap strewn all over the house … and several seemingly drugged out people just hanging out.
One of Kelly’s guests — who also seems inebriated — pulls out a camera and begins to record as a discombobulated Kelly struggles to rap along with music pumping through the speakers.
We’re told the song is a track Kelly had been working on recently — and includes the lyric, “We don’t stop, for nothing or nobody … look around you it’s full of dead bodies.”
