'90s Hip-Hop Jam of the Week: Skee-Lo, "I Wish"



Chicago-born Skee-Lo's 1995 lament "I Wish" is this week's '90s hip-hop flashback. Who hasn't wanted to be taller? Or wanted to be a "baller"? Or pined after a significant other who "looked good" so you could call them?

Skee-Lo actually released a second album (2000's I Can't Stop), but appears to have been quiet since then (although you can watch the "At the Mall" video here).
