Deftones Perform ‘Jump’ at St. Louis Show in Tribute to Kriss Kross’ Chris Kelly

Reprise Records

Deftones will make you ‘Jump, Jump.’

Yesterday the music community mourned the loss of Chris “Mac Daddy” Kelly, a member of the rap group Kriss Kross that rose to fame at a very young age in the early ‘90s with their hit single ‘Jump.’ The addictive anthem had an impact far beyond the rap world too, even rock bands like the Deftones took notice.

Last night during their show in St. Louis at The Pageant, Deftones frontman Chino Moreno took a pause during their set to pay homage to Chris Kelly before launching into their own rock-infused rendition of ‘Jump,’ check out the fan-filmed video below to check it out.

Deftones suffered their own tragic loss recently with the passing of bassist Chi Cheng on April 13 after long-term complications following a car crash in 2008.

After an upcoming stop at the Beale Street Music Festival, the Deftones will wrap up their current North American tour run in early May before heading to Australia.
