Wonderful One Hit Wonders: "I Wish" by Skee-Lo (1995)

This track from Skee-Lo is one of the last hits from the Hip-Hop era that started in the '80s and featured party music, verbal dexterity, and rappers talking about their lives like as if they were just like everybody else. It wouldn't be long before Gangstas and Bling would be what record companies wanted to push on the listening public, which is too bad because of how it de-emphasizes rap's ability to tell stories.
