Chris Kelly Funeral Will Include Public Viewing

The funeral for former Kris Kross rapper Chris “Mac Daddy” Kelly will be held next week in Atlanta, Ga., exactly one week after his passing from a possible drug overdose.

The arrangements are being handled by the Murray Brothers Funeral Home. They confirmed the funeral service was scheduled for Thursday at Jackson Memorial Baptist Church. However, the public can pay their respects to the "Jump" rapper the day before. The funeral home will hold a public viewing on Wednesday beginning in the afternoon.

"Though he was only with us a short time, we feel blessed to have been able to share some incredible moments with him," said Kelly's mother and the So So Def family in a statement. "His legacy will live on through his music, and we will forever love him.”

The 34-year-old Kelly was found unresponsive at his home last Wednesday (May 1.) An autopsy concluded that foul play had not been involved in his untimely death.

Blac Chyna fans were shocked to learn the reality TV star had been accepted to Harvard Business School after she shared the news on social media. But it turns out, that might have been fake news.

Harvard University reportedly told TMZ that Chyna was not admitted to the school to obtain a degree or even a certificate. "Harvard Business School Online has not admitted nor provided an acceptance letter to a person named Angela White," the statement reads.

The statement follows Blac Chyna's big reveal on social media Thursday afternoon (April 25), in which she said, "school is going to help me take things up a couple of notches. People are always talking about me, might as well talk about the good."

Black Chyna has not responded to this report at the moment.

Gang Leader Linked To Tupac's Murder Sentenced To 10 Years Over Drug Charge

A gang leader who is believed to be connected to Tupac's murder case is reportedly heading to prison for a long time. Darnell Brim, who was a South Side Compton Crips leader, was reportedly sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for drug distribution, TMZ reports.

Brim, received his sentencing after agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) caught him selling crack cocaine.

Brim is believed to be one of the four men who was riding in the white Cadillac that pulled up and opened fire on Tupac and Suge Knight on Las Vegas Boulevard in 1996. The LAPD suspects Brim fired the fatal shot that killed the legendary west coast artist, but he was never charged. Tupac was pronounced dead at 4:03 pm PT on Sept. 13, 1996. Brim was reportedly shot in a drive-by shooting in Compton two days after Pac's murder, which cops believed was retaliation for the rapper's death.

The rapper's death was never solved.
