Kris Kross rapper Chris Kelly (who rapped under the name Mac Daddy) may have died from a drug overdose. The Atlanta musician had reportedly been using a combination of cocaine and heroin the night before he died, according to a police report obtained by TMZ.
Following his death, police spoke with Kelly’s mother, Donna Kelly Pratt, who told police that the night before his medical emergency, he had taken a mixture of heroin and cocaine — commonly known as “speedballs.” The same combination of drugs killed actor and SNL comedian John Belushi in 1982.
Pratt told police she had personally taken Kelly home to recover from his drug use, something she had done several times before, adding that Kelly had felt nauseous all morning before passing out.
According to the report, Kelly’s mother and Kelly’s uncle both told investigators the rapper had an “extensive history of drug use.”
