Kris Kross Member Allegedly Responds To Bandmate's Death
With Kris Kross member Chris "Mac Daddy" Kelly's unexpected passing this week, fans and fellow entertainers have voiced their shock and shared their memories of the 90s rap star. The one person who has remained conspicuously silent has been Kelly's former bandmate, Chris "Daddy Mac" Smith.
ContactMusic reports that the reclusive Smith has finally issued a statement regarding Kelly's death, though the validity has yet to be confirmed.
"Chris Kelly was my Best Friend. He was like a brother," the statement reads. "I love him and will miss him dearly."
"Our friendship began as little boys in first grade. We grew up together. It was a blessing to achieve the success, travel the world and entertain Kris Kross fans all around the world (sic) with my best friend. It is what we wanted to do and what brought us happiness. I will always cherish the memories of the C-Connection. Kris Kross forever."
