Interesting Facts About Makell Bird: The First Celeb I Ever Met

The first celebrity I ever met was Chris Smith, whom you would better know as Mac Daddy of Kris Kross. Being that I was born and raised in the metro Atlanta area, most of the celebs I knew were rappers. I was 12 and playing a game of little league baseball at the time. When my game was over, I shuffled through the park waiting for my little brother to be done with his game. We were both on different teams of course due to the age difference. We both hated playing baseball. We were forced into it by our parents. Anyway, back to the story...

As I was shuffling around the park, I noticed a lot of kids crowding around a certain area where a young, light skinned, black kid with long braids was sitting on the bleachers. I describe him in such a way because, at the time, I had no clue who he was! I heard whispers but couldn't make out what the people around him were saying. Although I didn't know who he was, I felt compelled to sit by him out of sheer curiousity. I said nothing to him. I later learned who he was and, at that time, he couldn't have been any more famous! It's ironic that shortly after I would fall in love with Hip-Hop and even begin a career in the music business at 18.
