We’re glad Chris has finally been laid to rest.
Family And Friends Pay Tribute At Chris Kelly’s Funeral
According to TMZ
The rumors were true … Jermaine Dupri DID wear his pants backwards to Chris Kelly’s funeral today as a tribute to the Kris Kross rapper, and TMZ has the pic.
Dupri discovered Kris Kross performing at a mall when Dupri was only 19 years old. Jermaine signed them to his label and helped grow the rap group into international superstars.
Dupri wasn’t the only mourner to rock the backward pants look at the funeral — Kelly’s label mate Da Brat also went reverse trousers.
Dupri didn’t speak at today’s funeral ceremony — but Kelly’s rap mate Chris Smith delivered an emotional speech … saying, “It’s been like a struggle for me every day … I know Chris is in heaven.
During the service, which took place at a Baptist church in Atlanta, Smith said, “He was a true friend … I just wanna say I love you man … and I’m gonna miss you dearly.”
He added, “My life … it ain’t ever gonna be the same, but I just hope our legacy for hip-hop is never forgotten. I’m gonna do my part to make sure Chris’ legacy will live on.”
The funeral was filled with Chris Kelly’s famous friends — including R&B singer Keke Wyatt and the members of Xscape, all of whom performed songs.
