Late yesterday evening, news broke of Chris “Mac Daddy” Kelly passing away. He was found unresponsive in his home and was rushed to Atlanta Medical Center where he was later pronounced dead.
Not too long after the news broke, condolences started pouring in via Twitter.
Of course some of hip-hop’s biggest celebs paid their respect. From the classic joint “Jump” to the duo’s trendsetting fashion statement, their influence on the genre is undeniable.
RIP Chris Kelly.
So sorry to hear that. Sending love to his family. RIP Chris
