Информация о артисте

Молодежный рэп-дуэт Kris Kross сформировался в Атланте, штат Джорджия, США. Дуэт заявил о себе дебютным синглом Jump, который в течении восьми недель возвышался в Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart. Дуэт включает в себя участников: Chris 'Mack Daddy' Kelly (родился 1 мая 1978 года в США) и Chris 'Daddy Mack' Smith (родился 10 января 1979 года в США). В момент выхода дебютного сингла Jump, обоим участникам дуэта было всего лишь по 13 лет, а сингл был отмечен рекордным на момент его выхода в свет рейтингом продаж за последние пятнадцать лет.

История дуэта берет свое начало в 1991 году, когда их заметил известный продюссер Jermaine Dupri, вследствие чего ребята заключили контракт с Нью Йорским лэйблом Ruffhouse, который, кстати, являлся "родным домом" известного рэппера Tim Dog, а также многих других. Дебютный альбом рэп-дуэта Kris Kross под названием "Totally Krossed Out" вышел в 1992 году и был распродан рекордным тиражом, который составлял свыше четырех миллионов копий. Год спустя дуэт выпускает альбом "Da Bomb", который не пользовался таким успехом, какой им принес дебют. Даже несмотря на то, что сингл "Tonight's Tha Night" был замечен в различных чартах.

Рэп-дуэт Kris Kross закончил свою столь непродолжительную карьеру в 1996 году, выпустив последний в своей дискографии альбом "Young, Rich & Dangerou$". Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
Kris Kross was a hip-hop duo that formed in 1990 in Atlanta, Georgia, United States. The group consisted of Chris "Mac Daddy" Kelly (born August 11, 1978- May 1, 2013) and Chris "Daddy Mac" Smith (born Atlanta, January 10, 1979). They're best known for their single "Jump", which reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1992. The group had three further Top 20 hit singles in the United States - "Warm it Up", "Alright" and "Tonite's tha Night" - before disbanding in 1996.

They were found in 1991 performing at Lenox Mall in Atlanta, Georgia, by Jermaine Dupri. The duo's album, Totally Krossed Out, was released in 1992 and sold more than four million copies. It included the hit single "Jump", which stayed at number one on the Billboard charts for eight weeks. This landed them a spot on Michael Jackson's European tour that year as well as a cameo appearance in Michael Jackson's "Jam" video.

It became a short-lived fad for youth to wear their pants backwards.

1992, at the peak of their popularity, a video game was released starring the pair entitled Kris Kross: Make My Video. It was released on the Sega CD system, and consisted of the player editing together the groups music videos to a few of their hit songs using portions of the original music videos, stock footage, and general video animation effects. Players were prompted before each edit session to make sure to have certain footage compiled into the video. The game was released in the US only to very lackluster sales figures and dismal reviews. It was ranked 18th on Electronic Gaming Monthly's list of the 20 Worst Games of All Time.

In 1993, Kris Kross released their second album entitled Da Bomb, which went platinum. 1996 saw the release of their final album Young, Rich & Dangerous which went gold. By the end they stopped wearing their clothes backwards.

Kris Kross' popularity lead to a television commercial they starred in to advertise the soft drink Sprite in 1992–93, and guest spots on popular television shows such as A Different World and In Living Color.

After the group's demise, Kelly and Smith began writing and producing albums.

Featured in the Jermaine Dupri Top 25 Countdown on BET. Ranked as #25.

In 2007, the group had reunited, were working on different projects and still working for Jermaine Dupri. Chris Smith released his new album, Urbane Expressions sometime in 2008, the first single from his album was titled "Lady." Chris Kelly has his own label called C.Co records.

On 1st May 2013, Chris Kelly was found "unresponsive" at home. He died in a hospital in Atlanta later that day. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
