The mother of rapper Chris Kelly told authorities in Atlanta her son became sick after taking cocaine and heroin on the night before he died, according to a police report.

Kelly, half of the 1990s teen rap duo Kriss Kross, was found dead Wednesday of a suspected drug overdose.

Kelly's mother, Donna Kelly Pratte, 54, and his uncle, Lamar Williams, 52, told authorities Kelly had a history of drug abuse and experienced similar episodes in the past, according to a police report.

Paramedics found Kelly, 34, unresponsive on a living room couch at his Atlanta home and tried to resuscitate him. Kelly, who was known as "Mac Daddy," was later pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Authorities completed a physical examination of Kelly's body and a toxicology screening was being done to determine cause of death, said Betty Honey of the Fulton County Medical Examiner's office.
