'90s rap duo Kris Kross is an iconic group that everyone remembers for their 1992 debut single, "Jump," which went to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and held the position for eight weeks. The pair was only 12 and 13 years old when they became the youngest act to have a number-one hit on the charts and were embraced with open arms by the music industry. However, the duo disbanded in 1996 after releasing their third album, Young, Rich & Dangerous. Since then, fans have wondered where is kriss kross now?
Despite the fact that the two young performers were just starting out on their journey to stardom, the public quickly fell in love with their brand of music and style. Their debut album, Totally Krossed Out, topped the Billboard 200 for two weeks and also ranked first on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. Their follow-up album, Da Bomb, was just as successful. And while the third and final album the pair released, Young, Rich & Dangerous, did not do as well as their previous efforts, it still managed to reach platinum status.
