Chris Kelly's untimely death was a shock to Hip Hop fans especially, after he reunited with his group mate Chris Smith for the So So Def anniversary concert.  They put it down and there was even talk of them putting together a new album.  He's a look at their performance.

Sadly the 34-year old was found by his mother unconscious in his home and was later pronounced dead at Atlanta Medical Center.  A police report even states that his mother told investigators that he used cocaine and heroin the night of his death. Kelly apparently struggled with drug abuse in the past and was never able to kick the habit. So, it was unfortunately no surprise that rappers death was drug related.  A toxicology screening shortly after his death confirmed that he died do to a drug overdose.

On Monday this week, the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office reported that Kelly had a mixture of drugs in his system, but they were not able to determine exactly which drugs the 34-year-old had taken prior to his death.
