Chris Kelly, one half member of 90’s duo Kris Kross, died yesterday (May 1st) at the age of 34. He passed away at an Atlanta hospital after being found unresponsive at his Atlanta home, the Fulton County medical examiner’s office told CNN.

The duo, discovered by Jermaine Dupri was best known for their huge hits Jump & Warm It Up, and of course, influencing urban culture with their style of wearing clothes backwards. Their last major performance was at the So So Def 20th Anniversary show in Atlanta in February.

Rest in peace.




Kurupt and DJ Nik Bean reconnect for his new mixtape, Money Bitches Power. Tracklist and download link after the jump.

Marco Polo:

The Newport Authority 2 album was inspired by politics & industry bullsh*t that prevented this material from being included on my upcoming LP PA2: The Director’s Cut. Shylow and I went in and created a separate album to hold people over until PA2 drops in July. Attached with Intro, interludes and fully mixed & mastered by Joe Nardone. With confidence I can say this is not a mixtape. It will also be available on vinyl LP via Fat Beats for the heads that appreciate physical product, because I still do. I’ve included songs I recorded with legends such as Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, Tragedy Khadafi, Lil Fame and The Artifacts. But, I’ve also got joints on here with some talented up and comers such as First Division, MidaZ and Big Gutta. Plus the sh*t is free – so enjoy!

‘Triboro Thoro’ is the second track released to-date from DJ Skizz’s forthcoming producer album, B.Q.E. (Brooklyn-Queens Experience). “Triboro Thoro” features three emcees who embody NYC to the fullest. Hannibal Stax (of F.A.B.I.D. and the Gang Starr Foundation) hails from East New York, Brooklyn. Big Noyd (Mobb Deep) represents Queens (QB) and lastly Panchi (of NYGz) represents the birthplace of Hip-Hop, the boogie-down Bronx. They all represent different boroughs in NYC, but they all represent NYC and the NYC sound.




Coming off of Tha Soloist vs. Trilian: Original Script is the Certified fresH banger “Words.” The track features the verbal artillery of AWKWORD along with Tha Soloist over an ill backdrop provided by Serbian born producer Trilian.
