Skee-Lo moved to Los Angeles in the mid-1980s when he began producing his own music. His first hit single was titled "I Wish." The "I Wish" single became a hit on radio and TV during the summer of 1995 with a number one MTV video, and his debut album of the same title was released shortly thereafter, earning him two Grammy nominations for both the album and single.
Skee-Lo's single, "Top of the Stairs", was featured in the ending credits as well as the soundtrack to the 1995 film Money Train. He had a hit single in the same year with "I Wish" (featuring Jean Paul Jampole'), which reached #13 on the Billboard Hot 100, and was successful in much of Europe.
Skee-Lo also recorded a cover of the Schoolhouse Rock! song "The Tale of Mr. Morton", which taught sentence structure (subject, verb and predicate). The song appears on the compilation album, Schoolhouse Rock! Rocks.:)
