The 34-year-old Atlanta native was transported to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead, a spokeswoman for the Fulton County Medical Examiner's Officer told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

In a letter to fans posted at MTV.com, Dupri wrote, "God has blessed me to be in the presence of so many naturally talented people, and Chris was one ??? his passion for the music, his love for doing shows, his want to better than everyone else, was always turnt up. When I think about it I spent more time with Chris than damn near anybody in my whole life, so you can imagine how bad this hurts. I will always love you Chris, and I will never let the world forget you, may God bless your soul."
Sarah Jessica Parker raised the possibility of another "Sex and the City" movie while talking to Extra about her new digital series, "City Ballet."
"I've been saying??? there is one story left to tell -- if it's, in fact, the right time and the right place that maybe we should tell it; if It would be wonderful," Parker said of a possibile "SATC" sequel. "It's fun to ponder."
The actress said the online documentary series "City Ballet" came about as a result of her position on the New York City Ballet board of directors. "I started to wonder ... how could I be helpful. I realized it was about the next generation, the next group of young people who are going to make the ballet a part of their lives. I had an idea a docu-series about them might be interesting."
Parker will star in the play "The Commons of Pensacola" as Blythe Danner's daughter. Written by actress Amanda Peet, the play begin previews at the Manhattan Theatre Club on Oct. 22 and opens Nov. 21.
