Kelly and his rap partner, Chris “Daddy Mac” Smith, shot to super stardom in 1992 with their hit Jump after the duo was discovered by rapper Jermaine Dupri in an Atlanta mall. The song, off their album Totally Krossed Out, became an instant hit and was one of the most popular of the year. Kriss Kross was never able to match the success of its first song, but the pair did go on to produce the popular songs Warm It Up, and Tonite’s tha Night.
