Kris Kross rapper Chris Kelly‘s death was a shocker to some but not to those close to him that knew about his drug problems. Just hours before his death, Kelly got a surprise call from Akini Jeffrey, producer of the Streetz Morning Grind on Streetz 94.5 in Atlanta.
“I was extremely shocked to hear of his passing because I actually called (him) this morning at the radio station around 7:52am. I believe that I have the audio of his last phone conversation. I just randomly called him to get him on the air to wish him a happy birthday and he answered the phone.
Kelly does not sound like he is in the best shape on the call and his mother confirmed that he was taking a heavy mixture of cocaine and herion the night before.
