It’s been announced that Funeral services are set for next week in Atlanta for Chris “Mac Daddy” Kelly – the former Kris Kross rapper – who was found dead in his home from a possible drug overdose.

On Saturday Murray Brothers Funeral Home in Atlanta confirmed that it will hold a public viewing for Kelly throughout Wednesday afternoon and evening. A funeral service has been scheduled for Thursday at Jackson Memorial Baptist Church.

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

Kelly, 34, died Wednesday. His mother told Fulton County police her son had become sick after using cocaine and heroin the night before he died, reports the AP.
