Kris Kross' Chris Kelly Laid To Rest
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
