Jermaine Dupri Writes Reflection Letter On Chris

Kriss Kross' mentor and the man who produced all three of the group's albums, says that he spent more time with Chris "Mac Daddy" Kelly than "damn near anybody in my whole life."

Jermaine Dupri (a/k/a JD) produced all three of Kriss Kross albums. Released on Ruffhouse/Sony Records, 1992's Totally Krossed Out, 1993's Da Bomb and 1996'sYoung, Rich & Dangerous were all under the tutelage of the So So Def hit-maker and record exec. Dupri, who included the duo of Chris "Mac Daddy" Kelly and Chris "Daddy Mac" Smith, reacted to the news in the last day of Kelly's untimely death, at the age of 34 years old.

In addition to his label's joint reaction with Kelly's mother, Dupri released the following personal statement, via Global14.

"To the world Chris was MacDaddy but to me, he was a son I never had, as much as you may think I taught him, he taught me, god has blessed me to be in the presence of so many naturally talented people, and Chris was one. his understanding of what we set out to do, from day one was always on point. his passion for the music, his love for doing shows, his want to better than everyone else, was always turnt up. when I think about it I spent more time with Chris than damn near anybody in my whole life, so you can imagine how bad this hurts.

I will always love you Chris, and I will never let the world forget you, may god bless your soul

    LIke a son? C'mon. If he was like a son then you would have helped him. You left them broke. And by the way they are the ones that made you who YOU are. If Jump never broke then there would be no JD as we know him now. And by the way who helped Jump to break? who did the marketing. the development at a time when no one was returning you and mauldin's phone call. you amensia mother fker.
