Shon Adams, better known by his stage name E-A-Ski, is an American rapper and producer from Oakland, California. In the early 1990s he helped Master P get his deal for No Limit Records when he was based in Richmond, California. He served as both a rapper and producer for the label, producing on Master P's early records and also releasing some of his own material. In 1992 with his partner DJ CMT he released his debut EP 1 Step Ahead of Yall. He also produced several tracks on Spice 1's albums Spice 1 and 187 He Wrote in 1992–1993. By the mid-1990s he had left No Limit and in 1995 contributed a song to the movie Friday, "Blast If I Have To". He released a second EP in 1995 also titled Blast If I Have To.

187 He Wrote peaked at number 1 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and at number 10 on the Billboard 200 in 1993. Continuing to solidify the strength of his production work with Spice-1, the E-A-Ski produced Trigga Gots No Heart which also featured in the Menace II Society film, as well being released as a single (with video) for promotion for the now classic Hughes Brothers film. The Menace II Society soundtrack is a platinum-certified album.

In 1995, E-A-Ski scored yet again with his production on "Playa Hater" off the Luniz Operation Stackola album. Certified Platinum by the RIAA, Operation Stackola served as the Luniz highest-selling album to date, peaking at number 1 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and at Number 20 on the Billboard 200 in 1995. In addition, the E-A-Ski produced song "Playa Hata" sparked the now infamous, and since resolved, beef between the Luniz and Too Short, which prompted Too Short to record several response records on his 10th album Gettin' It.
