4. Alright (1993)

When it was time to follow-up the massive success of their debut “Totally Krossed Out,” Kris Kross returned to the studio with Jermaine Dupri who wrote and produced this reggae-influenced jam. Although Kris Kross were thought to have a squeaky clean image, they had a little edge to them. In “Alright,” Mac Daddy and Daddy Mack took shots at their then rivals Da Youngstas. Da Youngstas were a rap group who dissed Kris Kross because they didn’t write their own rhymes. Kris Kross shot back, “I didn’t come out wack I came out right, unlike them moles who choose to pass da mic,” which was a reference to their rival’s song “Pass Da Mic.” Damn, if that doesn’t sound like “Don’t worry if I write rhymes, I write checks” the 1993 edition.
