MN Jam Of The Day: “I Wish” (I Was A Little Bit Taller…) By Skee-Lo
Throwback! Unlike most rappers out here doing the usual braggadocio rap about what they have in their bank accounts and how fly they are, rapper Skee-Lo kept it really real–he didn’t have a girl, he was short, his money was funny, and I don’t even think he had a car. Well, at least a nice one. That’s what I took away from the track for the most part. He was getting dissed because of his size by the ladies (except for the hoodrats) and just wasn’t getting much respect in general, so Skee-Lo had a wealth of wishes that he was hoping would make him the man. With a groove-worthy beat and a catchy chorus, this track definitely still gets many folks excited on the dance floor. Skee-Lo wound up being a one-hit wonder for the most part (he gets no respect!!!) but this track from ’95 still bangs. Enjoy it this morning and be glad that your luck might not be as bad as Skee’s.
