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.

1996 saw the release of their final album Young, Rich and Dangerous which was also a commercial dissapointment. Kweller's second solo effort, On My Way, has attempted to match the modest but well-received popularity of Sha Sha while creating a more mature and subdued sound. Released in 1993, a second album, entitled Da Bomb failed to match their early success. The album grew in popularity with a grassroot effort with his website and a promotion group called TeamBK, which promoted word-of-mouth advertising. This landed them a spot on Michael Jackson's European tour that year. The record kept many of the familiar sounds of Nirvana, but also worked in other pop music influences such as Weezer and Ben Folds. It included the hit single Jump, which stayed at number 1 on the Billboard charts for eight weeks. The title track reconciles his past career efforts with Radish and the difficulty of finding an identity as a 20 year-old artist beginning a musical career for the second time.

Their first album, Totally Krossed Out, was released in 1992 and managed to sell more than four million copies. Kweller began his solo career with his 2002 debut Sha Sha. They were discovered in 1991 performing at a mall in Atlanta, GA by Jermaine Dupri. Regardless of a much-hyped beginning, which included appearances on Conan O'Brien and David Letterman, Radish failed to strike big success with either its first record Dizzy or its sophomore effort Restraining Bolt. Kris Kross (Chris Kelly and Chris Smith) were a teenage rap duo of the early 90's most famous for wearing their clothes backward. However, the band was dismissed by critics as little more than an imitation of Nirvana with the novelty of an extremely young lead vocal-guitarist (Kweller was in his teens for the entire existence of the band). Nonetheless, Kweller and his two bandmates, bassist Bryan Blur and drummer John Kent, were signed to a major record label in 1995 by Mercury Records. The band grew in popularity in the Dallas, Texas music scene from its formation in 1993.

Ben Kweller (born June 16, 1981) is an American rock musician and former lead singer of the 1990s band Radish, which was compared to Nirvana in Rolling Stone Magazine.
