Deftones played a show at The Pageant in St. Louis last night, and after learning of Kris Kross rapper Chris Kelly's death, paid a bit of a tribute, adding some lyrics from the smash hit "Jump" to their own song Engine No. 9.

Luckily, YouTube user OARDarby shared some video:

The sound quality isn't great unfortunately, but you get the idea. The studio version isn't hard to find.

It was only a couple of weeks ago that Deftones suffered a death in their own group, as bassist Chi Cheng passed away after recovering from a coma.

Kelly died from an apparent drug overdose. You can pay your respects by checking out this awesome Sprite commercial Kris Kross did in the 90s.
