It's been a year since tragedy struck the music community. May 1, 2013, Chris "Mac Daddy" Kelly, one half of '90s teen sensation Kris Kross, died from a sudden drug overdose. The duo's 1992 hit "Jump" spent eight weeks atop theBillboard Hot 100 — the first time a rap song had ever done so, and an important benchmark in the genre's commercial takeover in the years to follow. The song also put their now-legendary mentor and producer, Jermaine Dupri, on the map. But Chris Kelly isn't the only influential star from the '90s to leave us too soon. Read on to keep the memory alive of other late musicians from the decade.
