2013: Rapper Chris Kelly, 34, dies at an Atlanta hospital after he was found unresponsive at his home. Kelly (right) was best known as one-half of the duo Kris Kross, who scored a No. 1 hit in 1992 with "Jump" and were known for their fashion style, which consisted of wearing their clothing backward. An autopsy later determined Kelly had died of an accidental drug overdose caused by the combined toxic effects of heroin, cocaine, ethanol and hydrocodone, and alprazolam.
