Kris Kross

Kris Kross (Chris Kelly and Chris Smith) were a teenage rap duo of the early 90's most famous for wearing their clothes backward. They were discovered in 1991 performing at a mall in Atlanta, GA by Jermaine Dupri. Their first album, Totally Krossed Out, was released in 1992 and managed to sell more than four million copies. It included the hit single Jump, which stayed at number 1 on the Billboard charts for eight weeks. This landed them a spot on Michael Jackson's European tour that year.

Released in 1993, a second album, entitled Da Bomb failed to match their early success. 1996 saw the release of their final album Young, Rich and Dangerous which was also a commercial dissapointment.
