Chris Kelly’s Last Phone Call Just Hours Before His Passing With Morning Grind Producer Akini
I was extremely shocked to hear of his passing because I actually called in this morning at the radio station around 7:52am.
I believe that I have the audio of his last phone conversation.
Basically as I was doing show prep this morning, I came across a blog site that had his birthday posted as today.
I was trying to remember if that was correct because I remembered it being August the 11th.
I just randomly called him to get him on the air to wish him a happy birthday if this was true and he answered the phone.
When you listen to the phone conversation, you can tell there is a lot going on in the background
Chris says “It’s Akini from the radio station baby”. He also went on to apologize to me for not showing up to a radio interview that I had him scheduled for the So So Def Reunion.
Chris also stated “Tell everybody in Atl I said What’s up…”
