Chris Kelly of 90’s Rap Group Kris Kross dies age 34

1 Comment
  • In a discussion about the best 90’s Hip Hop groups ever to have graced our television sets, Kris Kross would have to be one of the most iconic.
    Kris Kross “Jumped” to No.1 in the Billboard Hit 100 charts holding their position for EIGHT WEEKS with the single which attained double platinum status.
    They were barely out of pampers yet still, ‘Jump’ was the first ever rap song to have remained in the charts for such a lofty period of time, and all this achievement came in a time when the Biggies and 2Pacs roamed the earth.
    These boys were badass!
    The back to front clad group were some of the youngest rappers to have made such a measurable impact on the music industry after being ‘discovered’ by 19 year old Jermaine Dupri, so imagine my surprise when I learned that one of my iconic childhood rappers had died — of a drug overdose, aged 34!

    So here’s to the memory of the handsome and talented, superstar that was —Chris Kelly.

    1. Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m planning to start
      my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
      P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
