Chris Kelly of Kris Kross fame died Wednesday. He was 34.
As a member of the group with Chris Smith, they shot to stardom in 1992 with the mega hit “Jump,” which spent eight weeks on top of the Billboard Hot 100. Known for setting the early 90’s trend of wearing clothes backwards, the young group’s stock was so high they opened for Michael Jackson in 1992 on his Dangerous World Tour
