Chris Kelly of Kris Kross dies of overdose at age 34

Not an '80s item, though fans of our decade knew their music too: Chris Kelly, half of the kid rap duo Kris Kross, died at an Atlanta hospital on Wednesday of an apparent drug overdose, the AP reports. He was only 34.

Kelly, known as "Mac Daddy," and Chris Smith, known as "Daddy Mac," wore their clothes backwards and scored their biggest hit in 1992 with Jump. It would become a No. 1 hit globally, and one of the most popular of that year.
