Kid n Play where are they now ?
Christopher “Kid” Reid and Christopher “Play” Martin formed their hip-hop duo in the late ’80s, but they hit their stride in the ’90s. They were one of the first rap acts to understand the importance of being in all places at once. Aside from albums they made films (the “House Party” series), had a Saturday morning cartoon, and coined a dance (the Funky Charleston) before splitting in 1995. Kid now acts (MTV’s “Celebracadabra,” anyone?) and wrote the theme song for “Real Time with Bill Maher.” He also lost the hi-top fade. Play is now an artist-in-residence for North Carolina Central University’s Hip Hop in Context 101 class.
