Kelly, known as "Mac Daddy," and Chris Smith, known as "Daddy Mac," made up the 1990s child rap duo Kris Kross known for wearing their clothes backward as they rhymed. Their song "Jump" became one of the decade's most memorable songs.

I Guess some people making harsh comments don't realize that they are going to die one day as well. And when you are heartless and draw this type of attention to yourselves, that day just got here a little quicker for you. You'll see.
