I remember when Kris Kross was hot, and I was a lil kid, I remember vibin to their music a lot when I was really young, their music was funny, lol, but i didnt took their music seriously, I started listening to hip-hop because of skateboarding, first I was into beastie boys, house of pain and cypress hill, but then i discovered resturn to 36 chambers by odb, then wu-tang, then mobb deep, then it was written by nas, then cnn...i really liked nyc sound back then, i miss that boom-bap hip-hop, specially QB mobb deep dark boom-bap, that was my shit!
