The world was shocked and saddened yesterday when news spread that Chris Kelly, better known as the Mac Daddy half of ‘90s duo, Kriss Kross, passed away at the age of 34. Real Housewife of Atlanta Phaedra Parks gave the young rapper a shout-out on Instagram.

"RIP Chris Kelly," Phaedra wrote, alongside a montage of Chris, which included a couple of more recent pictures, a shot of him and Chris Smith at the height of their "Jump" popularity, and a photo of him posing with the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson. The group had toured with MJ in 1992 during the Dangerous World Tour.

Unfortunately, an early investigation suggests that drugs may have played a role in his untimely passing. So sad.

Like Phaedra, we hope Chris is resting now, and our deepest condolences to all of his loved ones.
