Remembering Chris Kelly and Kris Kross

There are some songs that you recognize immediately when they’re played over the airwaves. “Jump” by the rap duo Kris Kross was one of those songs.

That’s why it’s sad to hear of the passing of Chris Kelly last week who was Mac Daddy to partner Chris Smith’s Daddy Mac. The two of them combined to form Kriss Kross and in 1992 their single “Jump” appeared No 1. on the Billboard Top 100 for 8 weeks. More than 20 years later that single is still being played. R.I.P. Chris Kelly.
