Da Bomb is the second studio album by the hip-hop duo Kris Kross, released a year after their first album Totally Krossed Out. The group tried a hardcore/gangsta look to fit with the new style of hip-hop. The album was not as successful as Totally Krossed Out, as many fans were not impressed with the new look and style and the use of the word "nigga" (though they had used it on their first album) and reviews were mixed. The line "I drop bombs like Hiroshima" from "Da Bomb" was edited out of the album's Japanese release. Despite some negative reviews the album was certified platinum in the US, selling 1.1 million copies, and a total of 4 million copies worldwide. Three singles were released, "Alright", "I'm Real" and "Da Bomb".[1][2][3][4]
