The music world is taking to Twitter to remember 90s rap star, Chris Kelly. The 34-year-old was found unresponsive inside his Atlanta home on Wednesday, and later pronounced dead. Kelly was one-half of the iconic group, Kris Kross, who made a name for themselves with their hit song, “Jump, Jump.”

Kelly’s untimely passing has celebrities taking to Twitter to express their condolences.

“Rest in peace, Chris Kelly. Kris Kross lives forever. Thank you for the memories. #AtlantasOwn“, Keri Hilson tweeted.

“One of my motivations as a kid to even get into the rap game. You will be missed. R.I.P. Chris Kelly”, Ludacris added.

Diddy kept things short, simply writing, “RIP Chris Kelly,” while LL Cool J took the rapper’s passing as a chance to dedicate a song to him.  “R.I.P Chris Kelly. This song is now officially dedicated to you. May GOD embrace your soul & lift up your family.”

    Kriss Kross were no doubt pioneers who laid the groundwork for the young rappers in today’s generation!!!!! It was pure, real, & fun (no heavy emphasis on violence, sex, drugs, or any of the foolishness that are often mentioned in today’s rap lyrics). I certainly remember their appearance in the MJ video “Jam” along with Michael Jordan & Heavy D growing up!!!!! From “Warm It Up,” “Jump Jump,” to “Tonight’s the Night,” Kriss Kross has left an legendary mark on the Hip Hop Industry. God gave Chris Kelly an opportunity to perform one last time @ the So So Def 20th Anniversary concert!!!!!! RIP “Mack Daddy,” God Bless!!
