New Skee-Lo Video.

I've been a fan of Skee-lo for years. His 1995 song "I Wish" is classic and the album (same title) is one of my favorites.

I interviewed him 2 years ago and heard some new material and was pretty excited for a comeback. He is one who I feel has honestly mastered different delivery styles which makes for a very versatile MC. I just saw on twitter he'd released a new video for the Killer Holiday soundtrack so I of course watched it. It's called Burnin' Up featuring someone named Akapello.

Obviously 1995 and 2011 are different eras of music style and video technology and evolution is necessary for sustainability in the entertainment industry (think Beatles, Kanye West, etc).

His delivery is great but something seems...off. It's just not what I expect when I hear Skee-Lo, you know? It seems a little forced/generic as far as the video but it does have some little interjections of his sense of humor and style. But let me know what you think.




Now compare that with his video for "I Wish"
