Williams declined to speak about any recent troubles his nephew might have had, but said Kelly was preparing to make a comeback. Earlier this year, Kris Kross performed together to celebrate the anniversary of Durpri’s label, So So Def.
Ojeifua Sanni, a fan of Kris Kross, remembered getting his first CD ever on his 12th birthday — Kris Kross’ “Young, Rich & Dangerous.” Sanni had been revisiting Kris Kross’ music recently during a period of nostalgia.
“When I heard he died, it [was] way too close to home,” Sanni said.
Kelly’s funeral is scheduled for Thursday at Jackson Memorial Baptist Church in Atlanta.
