Kriss Kross Bio
Thirteen-year-old rappers Chris "Daddy
Mack" Smith and Chris "Mack Daddy" Kelly became the pop
sensations of 1992 as Kris
Kross. The two were discovered at an Atlanta
mall in 1991 by then-19-year-old producer Jermaine Dupri, who took them
under his wing and came up with the gimmick of having the duo wear all
of their clothing backwards, lending more significance to their name.
Thanks in part to savvy marketing, "Jump," which sampled the
Jackson 5's "I Want You Back," became the fastest-selling
single in 15 years, staying at number one for eight weeks on the
Billboard charts and pushing the sales of their debut album, Totally
Krossed Out, past four million. Another gold single followed in
"Warm It Up," and Kris Kross toured Europe with Michael
Jackson and appeared on innumerable teen-oriented TV shows.

|By the time of
their follow-up album, 1993's Da Bomb, the boys had hit puberty, and
their voices were noticeably deeper; they tried to affect a tougher,
more hardcore sound and image, with less success. "Alright"
was their third single to go gold or better, but Da Bomb failed to even
go platinum by the end of the year. Kris Kross took some time off and
returned in 1996 with Young, Rich and Dangerous, which featured the
gold-selling rap ballad "Tonite's tha Night." ~ Steve Huey,
