Yesterday many familiar faces gathered to show their respects for Chris Kelly. The funeral of this Hip Hop star was held in his hometown of ATL where there was a live taping for everyone (including fans) to take part in the services. In attendance were Tiny, Da Brat, Jermaine Dupri, and many others who mourned this tragic lost. Check out some pics from the service.
Last week, 34 year old Chris Kelly, former member of Jermaine Dupri’s Kris Kross tragically died from what was initially declared “unknown causes.” People had their suspicions about a possible illness he may have suffered from or a drug overdose, but it was too soon to make the call…
…and technically it still is. The autopsy has been performed but the results of the toxicology report are still pending, although the police report says “Kelly had been using a combination of cocaine and heroin, known as a “speedball,” the night before his death.” And his mother admitted her son had an “extensive history of drug use.”
Since then, a video has been leaked of Chris’ very last hours. It was filmed in his home, literally a few hours before the ambulance was called.
Him and a group of friends are sitting around rapping, singing and talking. I won’t comment on whether they were under the influence or not. I will say things don’t look good. Check out TMZ‘s video inside. Continue reading

We’re all still keeping Lil Wayne in our prayers as he is still hospitalized in the Intensive Care Unit at Cedars-Sinai Hospital.
Over the weekend, there was a lot of controversy about what’s actually going on with Lil Wayne. It was initially reported that he was being given his last rites, and then Mack Maine and Baby came out and said it was all untrue. TMZ stuck by their story and then there was an alleged tweet sent out by Lil Wayne (which was very skeptical).
Here we are 3 days later, Wayne is still being watched very closely by hospital staff. His family and friends are there for support.
This is a very sad situation. We truly hope he pulls through and that this will be a cautionary tail for him and anyone else who may need it.

This is HORRIBLE! We are praying for him and REALLY hope that he pulls through! We are in shock!
