Kid N Play, Christopher Reid, Christopher Martin were at the T-Boz Unplugged benefit concert at Avalon in Hollywood last night. The two rapper/actors both looked pretty good.
Kis is 54 and Play is 52 years old. Both men are still working on music and acting.
And word is that there is a Houseparty reboot in the works. The new movie, MTO News has learned, will be about Kid's daughter and Play's son. Sounds interesting.
The pair met while performing in rival high school groups The Turnout Brothers and The Super Lovers, and initially formed their duo under the name The Fresh Force Crew. In 1986 She’s a Skeezer and Rock Me were recorded. By 1987 they had changed their name to Kid ’n Play.
Kid ’n Play recorded three albums together between 1988 and 1991: 2 Hype (1988), Kid ’n Play’s Funhouse (1990), and Face the Nation (1991). Hurby “Luv Bug” Azor, the producer for Salt-n-Pepa (who had been a member of The Super Lovers with Play) served as Kid ’n Play’s manager and producer during the early portion of their career. All three albums focused upon positive lyrics backed by pop-friendly instrumental tracks.
