It’s been almost two months to the day since Chris “Mac Daddy” Kelly of Kris Kross fame passed away at 34-years-old. As many suspected, the official cause of death has been determined to be a drug overdose.

Reports TMZ:

An investigator from the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office in Atlanta said a toxicology screening showed the 34-year-old died with a fatal mixture of drugs in his system.

The investigator didn’t specify which drugs, but as we reported, Chris’ mother told police the rapper had been doing cocaine and heroin the night before he died on May 1st.

The video TMZ posted — showing a wasted Chris trying to rap just hours before his death — appears to back up the Medical Examiner’s findings.

Kelly was honored with a mention during this past Sunday’s BET Awards in Los Angeles. Kelly’s funeral was May 9 and attended by family, close friends and stars including Jermaine Dupri and Da Brat, who wore their jeans and shorts, respectively, backwards in honor of the deceased.
