From the hip-hop act's first hit music video, "Jump," to that time they hung out with "Marky" Mark Wahlberg on "Oprah"
Chris "Mac Daddy" Kelly, one half of rap group Kriss Kross, died at 34 on Wednesday, but he leaves behind a collection of hit singles, music videos and appearances alongside Chris "Daddy Mac" Smith that are not to be forgotten.
Here are six of the duo's finest moments in music:
"Jump": The debut single, written and produced by Jermaine Dupri, catapulted the Atlanta natives to fame. "Jump," off of the duo's quadruple-platinum album "Totally Krossed Out," topped the the Billboad Hot 100 for eight weeks.
"Warm It Up" – Their first single off of their debut album brought them fame and fortune, but their second, "Warm It Up," won Kriss Kross a Billboard video award for "Best New Artist."
"In Living Color": Before Jennifer Lopez became Jenny from the Block or J. Lo, she jumped with Kriss Kross while the young act closed the sketch comedy show on May 29, 1992, by performing their first hit single.
"Oprah": Kriss Kross was counted among the most popular young singing acts in America in 1992, so Oprah Winfrey invited the boys to hang on her show with a few other notable musicians of the era: TLC and "Marky" Mark Wahlberg.
"Rugrats Rap": The teenage rap group provided the vocals for a song celebrating another staple of the '90s: Nickolodeon's "The Rugrats." Watch Tommy, Chuckie, Phil, Lil, Angela and Susie get down to Kriss Kross' sound.
So So Def 20th Anniversary Concert: Mac Daddy and Daddy Mac went their seperate ways after releasing their third album, "Young, Rich & Dangerous," but last February they reunited to join Jay-Z, Ludacris, Usher and other prominent hip-hop artists celebrating the success of the label that discovered them.
