Deftones paid tribute to Chris "Mac Daddy" Kelly of Kris Kross at their show Wednesday night.  The rapper was found dead yesterday at the age of 34.

Kris Kross rose to fame in 1992 with the success of their hit song, Jump.  In honor of Kelly, Deftones covered that song.  Front-man Chino Moreno told the audience, "we just got word that a member of Kris Kross has passed.  I know it's not good news."

The Deftones have recently experienced loss themselves.  The band's original bassist, Chi Cheng, died in April at the age of 42.  Cheng had spent the last several years in a coma after a 2008 car accident.
