Backwards clothes pioneers Chris "Mac Daddy" Kelly and Chris "Daddy Mac" Smith — better known to older Millennials as kid rap outfit Kris Kross — have announced plans to reunite, bringing us all perilously close to '90s nostalgia singularity.
It's been over two decades since the duo was discovered by an 18-year-old Jermaine Dupri at an Atlanta shopping mall and nearly just as long since they had their last chart-topping single (1995's "Tonite's tha Night"), but Kelly and Smith, now 32, figured that must mean they're well past due for a comeback.
"Not only is it an honor to be able to stand here 20 years after our very first release in 1993, Xscape's number one single Just Kickin It, but it's truly an achievement that we can bring everyone back together to celebrate over two decades of music excellence," Dupri told reporters.
Indeed, Kris Kross will be joined at Fox Theatre on February 23 by former labelmates Da Brat, Bow Wow, and Jagged Edge.
It remains to be seen if the concert compels Smith and Kelly to wrap up their long-delayed fourth album, which has been in production since the turn of the century.
