Chris Newcomb, M.Div.
It seems another celebrity has died due to a drug overdose. News broke today that the autopsy of deceased rapper Chris Kelly (a.k.a. "Mac Daddy"), one-half of rap sensation Kriss Kross, died from a drug overdose due to excessive levels of heroin and cocaine in his blood.
In addition, Kelly also had ethanol, hydrocodone, and alprazolam in his blood stream. Funeral services will be announced shortly.
It is sad to see anyone die much less from the ravages of addiction. Kelly found fame early in life in his now famous rap duo group known as 'Kriss Kross'. The group had a number #1 album in 1990 that procured them a spot opening for the Michael Jackson Dangerous Tour and it seemed like he had it made in the shade, so to speak. Fame. Fortune. Friends. And a pesky problem that would be his undoing.
Fast forward a dozen or more years later and life had changed drastically for Mr. Kelly. His music career never reached the dizzying heights of the early 90's although he continued making music right up to his death. Unfortunately, there was no suicide note or any other indication that he was going to pass away when he did. Truly a sad moment for all his friends, family, and fans! We wish peace for those struck by this tragic loss!
Drug addiction is an equal opportunity destroyer. It doesn't care who you are: black or white, gay or straight, young or old, rich or poor, educated or uneducated. It simply needs a host to do it's "chemical bidding" on the body, the mind, and the soul. No one is exempt from the nastiness that drug abuse brings. But, by the grace of God, go I.
