Event

LyonPride Music's FOAM Party w/ SKEE-LO @ BackStage Bar & Grill BSBG's July 17th
SKEE-LO
Two Grammy Nominations: "Best Solo Rap Performance" and "Best Rap Album." Three Billboard Video Award Nominations: "Best New Artist," "Best Clip of the Year," and "Maximum Vision Clip of the Year." Skee-Lo was born in Chicago's (south side) IL. and has been performing and recording songs since the age of nine. His 1st musical influences were James Brown, Debarge, Stevie Wonder, & Michael Jackson. In the late 70's Skee-lo moved to New York City where he first learned about Hip Hop music. He was influenced by artist like: ( KRS-1, L.L. Cool J, Rakim, Whodini, and Kurtis Blo); admiring their skills & their flow. Skee-Lo moved to Los Angeles CA in the mid 8o's where he began producing his own music. His 1st hit record was titled "I Wish" and was produced by the artist while still in his senior year of High school, & with no musical training. His "I Wish" single, with a video that parodied Forrest Gump, became a huge hit on radio and TV during the summer of 1995, and his identically titled debut album was released shortly thereafter earning him; 2 Grammy nominations for both album & single. In 1996 Skee-Lo became a V.J. for both MTV's "The Beach House" & "The Grind;" and thereafter made appearances as a lead actor on television shows like Dangerous Minds, Goode Behavior, & Bay Watch Nights. Today Skee-Lo resurfaces with a new album project titled "FRESH IDEAS;" A mature sound from an evolved artist, and an all-star cast of producers & special features. Skee-Lo captures the vibe and feel of the 90's with today's music, and delivers a lyrical performance that just isn't found in Hip Hop music today.
