ATLANTA (AP) — Authorities in Georgia say Chris Kelly, a member of the 90s rap duo Kriss Kross, has died in Atlanta.

Investigator Betty Honey of the Fulton County Medical Examiner's office said the 34-year-old Kelley was pronounced dead around 5 p.m. Wednesday at the south campus of the Atlanta Medical Center.

Honey said authorities are unsure of Kelly's cause of death and that an autopsy has yet to be performed.

Kelly, known as "Mac Daddy" performed alongside Chris Smith, known as "Daddy Mac," in the early and mid-90s. The duo might be best remembered for the song "Jump" from their 1992 debut album, "Totally Krossed Out."
