Chris Kelly Recorded Rapping And Partying Just Hours Before His Death

chris kelly records himself singing and partying with friends just hours before death

A new video has surfaced showing the late Kris Kross rapper Chris Kelly just hours before his recent death, and it's not pretty.

The two and a half minute clip shows the deceased performer hanging out with some of his friends the night before he passed, and he appears to be under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

Chris' mother revealed that her son was in fact using cocaine and heroin that night, and the video seems to support that as you can see beer cans and other substances scattered about his house.

At one point, the rapper tries to sing along to a track he had reportedly been working on, and he slurs his way through lyrics that involve morose subjects, like being surrounded by dead bodies.

Chris was only 34 when he died, and this disturbing video offers some insight into his substance abuse and the hours that led up to his untimely death.

Chris Kelly's Drug-Fueled Death Possibly Began With Comeback Concert

This is too tragic!

Family members were sure that the death of Kris Kross member Chris Kelly (aka Mac Daddy), was because of a drug overdose and now we have more evidence to back up those claims.

Sources closest to the rapper—who died on Wednesday— have revealed that it was the whopping paychecks that came with Kris Kross' recent comeback that put Chris on a steep downward spiral with drugs.

The rapper had recently cleaned up after years and years of abusing drugs like heroin and cocaine, but it was clear he was off the wagon after the rap group's February comeback concert in Atlanta.

With ressurrected popularity and a loaded bank account, Chris went back to his old ways of hard partying with the big players of the Atlanta rap scene with drugs flowing like waterfalls.

Unfortunately, between this and his mother's statements, it would be surprising if the autopsy did not confirm that drugs played a part in his unexpected death.

We mourn for his family and friends in this heartbreaking time.

And it pains us to think how MANY talented artists we have lost to addiction. Will it ever end??

R.I.P. Chris

..you will truly be missed.
