Whatever Happened to Skee-lo?

It seems like almost everyone has got a shitty gift at one point in their lives.  While my grandma has bought me some cds that surprised me (such as Sublime’s self-titled album) she also had bought me a few cds which I initially thought were jokes.  If you are reading this blog I’m pretty sure you know the album is Skee-lo’s “I Wish”.

I remember not minding the song when it came out but the rest of the album is horrible.  It’s almost like a parody of a rap album.  It seems like Skee-lo hasn’t done much since this album came out in 1995.  He released an album in 2000 and that’s about it.  Maybe I’m being optimistic but I think Skee-lo’s busy in the studio crafting what he believes to be the next “Pet Sounds“.  It’s more likely that it will have more in common with “Metal Machine Music” though.

Here’s the video in all it’s uhh… ‘glory’:

    So many opinions… but honestly the lyrics were some of the best out at the time. The brotha was on par with the likes of Lupe Fiasco. Dj Muffin was right.. if you’re not rapping about money, cars, drugs, and “bitches”… you’re not gonna make it in the mainstream. Too bad.

  6. Well, i think skee lo was great, his one album – i wish, had great hits, crenshaw, this is how it sounds etc.. on top of the stairs.. go suck lil waynes dick haters, all these bitch ass mainstream faggits lil wayne, soulja bitch, fuck jay z too nigga, SKEE LO NIGGA, 408 NIGGA , 408 to 702 NIGGAS

    Skeee-lo def got swallowed by the gansta rap era. The dude had tight rhymes and i really dug his style and flow. may not have been everyone’s cup of tea but i think he was good man. my 2 cents anyway 🙂

    Dear Blogger, I’m gonna go out on a limb and assume you’ve never made a hit song in your life let alone an entire album to compliment that song. Am I wrong? If you’re gonna be so close minded about an album, you’ve picked the wrong artist. Skee Lo’s debut album was better than I could of thought. Yea it got everyone’s attention with “I Wish”, but it’s a album with a good vibe during a period where violence and rap music were synonymous with each other. I can see I’m not alone in thinking this was a great record and many agree. This opinion comes from a fan of ‘gangsta’ rap. I’ve listened to it all and I still do. Yesterday I actually got a new copy of this cd and I played it all day yesterday and today. Don’t call this album shitty because you didn’t like it. You obviously don’t appreciate inventive rap.
