R.I.P: Chris Kelly A.K.A. “Mac Daddy” of Kris Kross + Where Were You When You First Heard, ‘Jump’?
One of the group’s two members, Chris Kelly aka, “Mac Daddy” died yesterday at the age of 34. Police are saying Kelly died of an apparent drug overdose.
Kris Kross were discovered at a mall in Atlanta back in 1990 and were best known for wearing their clothes backwards and the songs “Jump”, “Warm It Up” and “I Missed The Bus” off of their album ‘Totally Krossed Out.’
Where were you when Kris Kross were at their peak? I know I was working at a video store when “Jump” came out and for the remaining hits off of “Totally Krossed Out,” I was living in Saint John taking broadcasting classes. In 1992-1993 it was New Kids on the Block, TLC, PM Dawn, Joey Lawrence, Arrested Development and Kris Kross when it came to pop.
