AFTER 21YRS, KRISS KROSS IS WIGGITY BACK.
According to reports, Chris "Mac Daddy" Kelly and Chris "Daddy Mac" Smith will formally hook back up next month.
Get ready to break out your backwards oversized gear again, because '90s pint-sized rap duo Kris Kross are all growed up and ready to jump jump back into the spotlight. It's been 21 years since Chris "Mac Daddy" Kelly and Chris "Daddy Mac" Smith became famous for those ridiculous outfits -- and their monster hit "Jump" -- and they've just announced they are reuniting for a 20th anniversary all-star concert honoring So So Def Recordings in Atlanta next month.

Along with Kris Kross, former So So Def artists including Xscape and Da Brat will reunite.
Atlanta-based So So Def Records will celebrate 20 years of making music by holding a concert at the Fox Theater. Mayor Kasim Reed joined the label and hip hop artists on Tuesday to announce a 20th anniversary concert on Feb. 23. So So Def stars Jermaine Dupri, Xscape, Kris Kross and Da Brat will perform at the reunion celebration.
Back in early 2011, Da Brat got released from jail after putting in time on a three-year jail sentence.
"It's been crazy, everybody has been hitting me up," she said in an interview. "I'm in the 'A' doing house arrest. I have this nice leg monitor jewelry. I'ma put some Swarovski Crystals on this...I actually had more freedom in the work release program because I got to go home on pass. In the transition center you work and go back and forth to your job. When you're on pass you can go home. But I ain't trippin'. It's all good. All of this will be over soon." (XXL Mag)
Kris Kross are most known for invading the rap scene in the early 1990's as teenagers.
