Kris Kross, Jermaine Dupri, and Da Brat

Following his sudden death on Wednesday, Chris “Mac Daddy” Kelly was remembered by many of his peers on Twitter. But few knew the 34-year-old Kris Kross rapper as well as Jermaine Dupri.

The So So Def mogul discovered 13-year-old Chris and his partner Chris “Daddy Mac” Smith at an Atlanta mall in 1991 and signed them to Ruffhouse Records. On Thursday, he posted a letter on his blog Global 14 remembering the “son he never had.”

“When I think about it, I spent more time with Chris and Chris than damn near anybody in my whole life, so you can imagine how bad this hurts,” wrote J.D., who produced Kris Kross’ mega-hit “Jump” as well as their three albums.

In February, J.D. brought Kris Kross together onstage at his 20th anniversary all-star concert in Atlanta to perform a medley of their greatest hits.
