Skeelo was born in Chicago's South Side and moved to New York City in the late 70's. He was influenced by artist such as KRS-1, L.L. Cool J, Rakim, and Kurtis Blo, admiring their styles & technique. Skeelo moved to Los Angeles CA, in the mid 80's. His "I Wish" single, with a video that parodied Forrest Gump, became a huge hit on radio and MTV during the summer of 1995, and his identically titled debut album was released shortly thereafter earning him; 2 Grammy nominations for both album & single. Today, after being several years M.I.A., Skeelo resurfaces with a new exciting album titled; "Overdose." A mature sound from an evolved artist, an all-star cast of producers & special features, toppled with the unique style of Skeelo’s song-writing.
