Kris Kross' Chris Kelly Laid To Rest

(Radio.com) The funeral service for Chris Kelly, the 34 year-old member of teen rap group Kris Kross took place on Thursday (May 9) in Atlanta. As reported by V-103/Atlanta, there were the ceremony included many celebrity well-wishers and familiar faces from Kris Kross' heyday.

At his final viewing Thursday afternoon, it wasn't obvious whether the pants of the late Chris Kelly's dark, double-breasted suit were on backwards; but there was little doubt after the two-hour-plus service that there lay a beloved son and friend, a global superstar, and still-going style rule breaker.

There were the black letters in the lid of the handsome, two-tone open casket that read, "'Cause That's What I Was Born To Do…" (A reference to the chorus from his multimillion-selling hip hop group's hit, "Warm It Up.")

There were the hundreds of well-wishers in attendance for the funeral of the 34-year-old, fallen half of Atlanta's Kris Kross; including his So So Def labelmates Tiny "Tameka" Harris, Da Brat, Wingo of Jagged Edge and the So So Def CEO that discovered the duo in Greenbriar Mall – wearing their clothes backwards, even then – Jermaine Dupri. more on this story
