Unless you've been living a hermetic existence, you'll be aware there's been a recent slew of music comebacks: Destiny's Child, Justin Timberlake and the one we were most excited about, David Bowie.

But all that rather exciting news has been overshadowed by the fact that Nineties rap duo Kris Kross are set to reunite.

Yes, you read that right, Chris 'Mac Daddy' Kelly and Chris 'Daddy Mac' Smith, now 32, are uniting to star at the 20th anniversary all-star concert honouring So So Def Recordings in Atlanta next month, at the Fox Theatre on February 23.

The show will also feature performances from Da Brat, Jermaine Dupri, Xscape, Bow Wow and Jagged Edge, who were also popular during the mid-90s.

Speaking to the Mail Online, label founder Jermaine said: "Not only is it an honour to be able to stand here 20 years after our very first release in 1993, Xscape’s number one single Just Kickin It, but it’s truly an achievement that we can bring everyone back together to celebrate over two decades of music excellence.

"We also acknowledge 1992 as the year when So So Def Productions introduced to the world Kris Kross, who had everyone jumping."

If you can't remember who these scamps were, they brought you hits such as the brilliantly catchy Jump and the Rugrats Rap, while being dressed with their clothes on back-to-front.

Although their last album was released in 1996, the group was very successful after being discovered in 1990 by 18-year-old Jermaine Dupri at an Atlanta shopping mall and even ended up touring with Michael Jackson on his 'Dangerous' show.

There's no word on whether they will be donning their usual ludicrous attire, but for nostalgia's sake we hope so.
