    The untimely death of Chris Kelly of the 90’s hip-hop group Kris Kross shocked fans who grew up with the duo’s big hit “Jump Jump” and followed their trend of wearing backwards clothing.  DJ Nabs traveled with the group for years, while they were on the Michael Jackson tour and beyond.

    While it’s sad that Kelly has passed on, his legacy is that of a young man who made a huge mark on the entertainment industry. While allegations of drug use and a possible overdose as a cause of are sad to hear, those that knew Kelly say he was a fun-loving guy. Nabs says he was good friends with Kelly even after Kris Kross fell out of the national spotlight.

    “Kriss Kross professionally, really ended like 1997,” he told The Tom Joyner Morning Show. “I’ve been with Chris as he grew up, when he started driving, when he started going to the clubs. He was my little drinking partner for a while when I was still really partying hard in the clubs.  We had been at each other’s birthday parties and holidays.”

    Nabs says that any speculation that finances or the end of Kris Kross’ recording career played a role in his death are false. He says Chris was doing well, and that his family was well positioned financially.
