Very unfortunate news! #KrisKross had me wearing my clothes backwards as a kid! #RIPChrisKelly

A.B. Jump by Kriss Kross is pretty much the anthem of the 80′s-baby generation. I was 8 in 1992 when Jump came out and for the next 20 years it would be played at every dance, prom, cocktail, Bar-Mitzvah and wedding I attended. The only other hip-hop song from that era with as many spins might be a similarly titled hit; Jump Around by House of Pain.
So while Chris Kelly of Kriss Kross has now passed away at the very young age of 34, his anthem will live on forever. And whether you’re a Boston Red Sox outfielder, a full time sales guy/part time blogger like myself or a construction worker from Kansas – when Jump comes on, you jump.
