The Deftones and Kris Kross are not two music groups that cross paths very often. But last night there was a special moment in St. Louis when the heavy metal legends paid tribute to Chris Kelly, of the hip-hop tween stars, who had died just hours previously, age 34.

Chi Moreno and company launched into an almighty rap-metal mash-up of Kris Kros’ smash-hit: “Jump Jump.”

It’s now being reported by TMZ that Kelly, who went by the nickname “Mac Daddy,” may have been killed by taking a combination of heroin and cocaine.

The Deftones themselves have suffered tragedy recently, in March, their bassist Chi Cheng died aged 42, nearly five years after a car accident left him partially conscious and unable to move his limbs.
