Chris Kelly, half of the 1990s rap duo Kris Kross, have died. Kelly, 34, died May 1st at an Atlanta hospital after he was found unresponsive at his home, police said. Possible drug overdose. Kelly, together with Chris Smith, had a hit in 1992 with "Jump," which spent eight weeks on top of the Billboard Hot 100. The duo opened for Michael Jackson that year on his Dangerous World Tour. Their penchant for wearing their clothes backward was, at least for a time, widely emulated. Their career never again reached the heights of their debut, but they continued to make music. In 1996, the duo released the album "Young, Rich and Dangerous".
