Skillz is credited for putting Virginia on the hip hop map as he was the first artist to break out nationally from the state, while having performed and collaborated with The Roots, Nas, Missy Elliott, Cee Lo Green, Diddy, Raheem Devaughn, Musiq Soulchild, Pharrell Williams, Bilal, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Common, Q-Tip, Large Professor, Chris Brown, Freeway, Travis Barker, Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, Jazze Pha, Will Smith, DJ Jazzy Jeff, and DJ AM, among others.
Skillz is also the creator of the web series "Hip Hop Confessions", a series of shows that gathers hip hop purists and hip hop lovers alike where they reveal something hip hop related that they have never told anyone.
He made appearances on Timbaland's albums Tim's Bio in 1998, and Indecent Proposal in 2001; Timbaland made plans to sign Skillz to the Blackhand label he was developing; however, this label failed to materialize.
He along with Danja Mowf, Lonnie B, and Kalonji The Immortal, members of Skillz' Supafriendz collective, also appeared on a remix of Aaliyah's hit single "Are You That Somebody" in 1998.
Harris rose to international prominence with the release of his third studio album 18 Months in October 2012.
Pauly D's 9-month relationship with Aubrey O'Day is over and he's already trying to erase her from memory ... According to our sources the DJ and the singer ended things over the weekend -- just a few days after she left to shoot "Celebrity Big Brother." The exes actually got together while shooting another reality show -- "Famously Single" -- last Fall. They'd broken up for a few days back in May, but this time Pauly's scrubbed all images of her from his social media ... Last week when she left for 'BB' she posted a pic of Pauly with her 2 dogs, saying ... You are my best friend, my love, my person, my soulmate!
if Aubrey's sequestered in the 'BB' house, we're guessing she has no clue she's single.
The show has featured Q-Tip, Peanut Butter Wolf, Kwamé and DJ Jazzy Jeff.
Skillz was born June 2, 1974 in Detroit, Michigan, and after spending his early childhood in Fayetteville, North Carolina he then moved to Richmond, Virginia at a young age.
