Skee Lo talks working for MTV, being a one-hit wonder, and more with “Sway In The Morning” [VIDEO]
Back in 1995, the Los Angeles hip hop scene was booming, producing all types of talent. In the midst of all this, Skee Lo emerged as one of the biggest rappers in the game with his “I Wish” single. Most never heard anything from Skee Lo again, so he was written off as a one-hit-wonder.
Over the past decades, companies have relied more and more on hip hop music to sell their products, placing the songs in commercials. Skee Lo saw his revival when Toyota came calling. They have used his “I Wish” single for their Rav4 commercials and they have aired since the summer.
Sway Calloway has paid attention to Skee Lo and he invited him to Shade 45 for “Sway in the Morning.” Here, they discussed Skee Lo’s time as a host for MTV, something a lot of people might not know about. They also spoke on the “I Wish” hit and his business ventures.
