Real Name Christopher "Kid" Reid Christopher "Play" Martin Christopher "Mac Daddy" Kelly Christopher "Daddy Mac" Smith
Boldest Claim Invented the 'Kickstep' dance Wearing "everything ... to the back with a little slack" is less "wiggity, wiggity, wiggity wack" than wearing your clothes "inside-out."
Number of times MC uses own name in their most famous track (that number as a percentage of all words in the song) Ain't Gonna Hurt Nobody = 2 (0.4%), including Play's spelling "P-L-A-Y" Jump = 22 (4.03%), including "The D-A double-D-Y M-A-C" and "I'm the miggity, miggity, miggity, miggity Mac Daddy
Self evaluation of microphone skills Play: "Just take a hike on a bike when I'm on the mic." Kid: "like Hercules when I I step to the stage the microphone I seize and defy you to try and take it from me." Two lil' kids with a flow you ain't ever heard.
Most like Nick Knowles The duo improved a significant number of houses in the 1990s by attending parties that were held in these houses. Rumours circulated in 2007 that Kris Kross were going to reform and release new tracks; unfortunately they never did, nor did Knowles.
Self-promotional fictional narratives House Party 1 (1990), House Party 2 (1991), House Party 3 (1994), Class Act (1992). Kid n Play animated cartoon (1990-1991). Kid n Play marvel comic (1992, nine issues released) Make My Video: Kris Kross (1992)
Who's up in their grill? Luther Campbell of 2 Live Crew dissed the duo in 1992, focusing on their lack of street cred, goofy dance moves and PG-13 movies. "Penicillin on Wax" by Tim Dog included several "disses" aimed at artists including Kid n Play. Dissed by Illegal in their debut song "Head or Gut" written and produced by Erick Sermon
Animals err... probable that one of them saw a tamogotchi once. Guillemots recorded a song called Kriss Kross
Preferred mode of transport Ridin the range on the rap frontier various models of "Benz" automobiles, or the bus, which they missed.
Number of followers on Twitter, as of 14th June 2012 8,359 Zero
Lyrical Wanderlust Kid: went to "Union Square, check out the show" with his girl. Daddy Mack "hit the parking lot" Mack Daddy "went to a club"
