Skee-Lo developed a thirst for writing, rapping and the music industry at an early age. He was determined to earn a memorable place in the rap game among his musical influences KRS-1, L.L. Cool J, Rakim, and Kurtis Blo.
In 1995, Skee-Lo's vision of becoming a recognized rap artist soon turned into a reality when he was thrust into the limelight after the release of his hit single "I Wish." The video, memorable for parodying the bench scene from the movie Forest Gump, was a huge success on MTV and on various radio stations. The video even went on to be nominated at the Billboard Video Music Awards.
After the wide-reception that "I Wish" received, Skee-Lo released his first studio album coincidentally with the same title. The I Wish album earned the recording artist two Grammy nominations; one for Best Rap Album and the second for Best Solo Rap Performance.
Shortly after the release of his debut album, I Wish, Skee-Lo's music was featured on some very well-known movie soundtracks. Skee-Lo was still continued to make strides by doing guest spots on various television shows and studio albums.
Now, after taking an extended hiatus from the industry, Skee-Lo is back with a vengeance. The Skee-Lo of yesteryear has faded into the dust and Skee-Lo version 2.0 is here to claim his seat on the throne.
Skee-Lo resurfaces with a new sound, a new agenda and an entirely new mission. Skee-Lo's new EP, Overdose, lyrically and musically assassinates the monotone artistry that has become the normal standard for Hip Hop artists today.
The Overdose EP is a joint venture between SKEELO MUSIK & Premier Entertainment Group, Llc. This album was released in October 2009. This project includes an all-star cast of producers and artist features, some of which include: Skee-Lo, Doc Ice of Whodini & U.T.F.O., Tony Kurtis as JukeBoxx; with production by KolordPimp, Chey de Los, Michael "The Missing Link" De Barge, and Rod 'NoName' Oakes of the award winning rap group At All Costs.
This exclusive underground EP is the set-up for Skee-Lo's highly anticipated full-length studio album, Fresh Ideas. Fresh Ideas is slated for a July 2010 release. The Overdose EP is now available at CDBaby.com and SkeeStore.com.
Overdose is a great investment for any avid lover of rare Hip Hop classics.
