Kelly, known as “Mac Daddy,” and Chris Smith, known as “Daddy Mac,” made up the 1990s child rap duo Kris Kross known for wearing their clothes backward as they rhymed. Their song “Jump” became one of the decade’s most memorable songs.

The 34-year-old Kelly died Wednesday. His mother told Fulton County police her son had become sick after using cocaine and heroin the night before he died.
