R.I.P. Chris Kelly (Kris Kross)

When I heard about this first thing this morn I was about to ‘Jump Jump’ up and down and start crying!  I couldn’t believe that one of the ‘two lil kids wit a flow you aint never heard’ was dead.  Now we’re all sitting back waiting on autopsy results, and wondering WTF happened.  The social rumor mill is reporting that Kelly’s death could possibly be related to heroine and cocaine use.  Over the years I’ve seen videos of Kelly that were not very flattering.  He looked like he was definitely dealing with something other than just Alopecia–and might even need an intervention.  Plus he still wore his pants backwards…ijs.  I actually think that’s kinda cool.  😉  Kris Kross Interview

The ironic thing is that I once even referred to him as a broke-down Jermaine Dupri protegee; but who knew that the media would actually confuse the two!   Would you believe that in 2013 with all the internet and social media that a NBC News affiliate would report that Chris Kelly was dead while featuring an image of Jermaine Dupri?  And they weren’t the only ones.   http://madamenoire.com/275039/news-alert-jermaine-dupri-is-not-chris-kelly-multiple-news-shows-and-publications-confuse-dupri-for-the-late-kris-kross-member

I think my sister described their reporting capabilities well–lazy, sloppy and irresponsible.  I am in awe that reporters failed to find and verify an image of Kris Kross. Have they never heard of a CD cover, discography, or even frickin’ Wikipedia?–whom in all of its illegitimacy still got it right!  SMDH…

You can call me JULU. I’m a single working mother of two. I’ve been referred to as “an old soul” and have a knack for reading people. I’m friendly by nature and cool with just as many women as men. I’m that person who always gets the quiet people to talk. When giving advice, expect my answers to contain a heap load of wisdom gained from my vast personal experiences, a considerable amount of women’s intuition, and a dash of humor. I will not excuse behavior for ANYONE. Wrong is wrong, and if you do wrong then ask my opinion, expect the hard truth about it. I’m a great communicator, and enjoy talking and sharing thoughts with others. I’m also an artist, so view life creatively. I believe there are many different ways to handle the many different situations we encounter in life. Expect some humor where appropriate. I’m a trip, and will clown you as I see fit. Where guys are concerned, they typically think of me in one of two ways. I’m either like a sister, or they tend to “forget I’m a girl” because I’m so frickin’ laid back and “don’t get all emotional” like women tend to. Life is what it is, so no need in me stressing over stuff I can’t control. Don’t get me wrong I have my moments. I just usually take the common sense approach to solving problems instead of letting my heart do the talking; and then if that doesn’t work, I ask Drake. ☺ I have an Associates Degree in Business, and an Honorary Degree in “Dealing with Life’s BS.”
