Album Review

"I Wish" was an irresistible piece of pop-rap, featuring a slinky, funky beat and a sunny hook that rang in your head for days. It's undeniably the highlight of Skee-Lo's debut album, but he has enough charm and self-deprecating wit to make the rest of the record enjoyable, even if none of the songs have beats, lyrics or hooks quite as intoxicating as the title track.

Customer Reviews

Awesome!

Pure classic album! The Burger Song is ground-breaking!

So Hugely Underrated..

I've had this album for 15 years, since I was a teenager. It set the bar for my expectations in music.. Let's just say not many rap albums have come close. Although people love the single "I Wish", that ended up being one of my least favorite songs on this CD. I don't know where they came up with the beats, but they are amazing. From "Superman" to "Top of the Stairs" to "Crenshaw" and "Holdin' On", they all have amazing samples that will keep you listening for years.

I can't say enough good things about the quality of this production. Skee-Lo himself has a very interesting, fast lyrical style that you will probably either love or hate. There are only a few rap albums which I have found that have beats of this quality, namely early Snoop Dogg and Dr Dre. In any case, preview and buy this album, if you love beats you won't be disappointed!

This takes me back. Classic!!!!!!

Its gets no better than this. Its a must have!!!! They just dont make em like this anymore.

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Skee-Lo was an anomaly in the rap world of the '90s: instead of spinning violent gangsta tales or extolling the virtues of marijuana, Skee's songs were profanity-free, good-time stories with a self-deprecating sense of humor. Skee-Lo was born in Poughkeepsie, NY, and moved to Riverside, CA, at age nine. He was turned on to rap by Kurtis Blow records, admiring their down-to-earth quality. His "I Wish" single, with a video that parodied Forrest Gump, became a huge hit on radio and MTV during the summer...
