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 number one hit on radio and TV during the summer of 1995 with a number one MTV video directed by Marty Thomas that won many nominations and wins from VMA Awards worldwide. 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.:)
