Album: I Wish
Label: Altra Moda Music

Skee-Lo's only hit is something of an underdog anthem. It's for everyone who wished they could be a little bit better at something. Who can't identify with that? Oddly enough, it rose up the charts and earned Skee-Lo a Grammy nomination for Best Rap Solo Performance in 1996 (he lost out to Coolio's "Gangsta's Paradise). But months after the song was released, Skee-Lo essentially retired from rap due to legal disputes with his label, Sunshine Records, over who wrote and produced the song. Earlier this year, the L.A. Times went and found Skee-Lo, who'd disappeared from the public eye since then. Turns out he still wishes he was a little bit taller.
