During the 911 call, the caller tells the dispatcher that Chris is not breathing. The dispatcher then walks her through instructions on how to resuscitate him.
Kelly, who reportedly had a history of drug abuse, was reportedly pronounced dead about an hour later after being transported to the hospital.
The rapper had been on and off drugs (including cocaine and heroin) for the last ten years, but had recently cleaned up his act.
According to TMZ it was Kris Kross’ big comeback during their performance at the SoSo Def 20th Anniversary concert in Atlanta last February that may have sparked his renewed interest in drugs.
According to sources, Kelly’s ego blew up … along with his wallet … and he started hanging out in clubs again, chumming up with big name Atlanta rappers.
We’re told the drugs came back in full force as a result.As we reported,
Kelly’s mother told police the rapper had been taking speedballs (coke and heroin mixed together) Tuesday night … the night before he died … and cops believe drugs contributed to his death.
Chris Kelly was my Best Friend. He was like a brother.
I love him and will miss him dearly. Our friendship began as little boys in first grade. We grew up together. It was a blessing to achieve the success, travel the world and entertain Kris Kross fans all around the world with my best friend. It is what we wanted to do and what brought us happiness.
I will always cherish the memories of the C-Connection. KRIS KROSS FOREVER, the ‘MAC DADDY’ and ‘DADDY MAC.’
