Do you wish Skee-Lo was coming to town Wednesday? Granted.

Published on August 14th, 2013 | by Joe Lawler

Nineties hip hop one hit wonder Skee-Lo (“I Wish”) is performing at 7:30 p.m. tonight at House of Bricks, 525 E. Grand Ave., on what appears to be pretty short notice. I was disappointed that there was no ’90s hip hop at the Iowa State Fair this year, so having someone like Skee-Lo show up in town during the fair just makes it seem like more of a dropped ball.

I was going to run through Skee-Lo’s list of wishes from “I Wish,” but it turns out Funny or Die covered that pretty well last year. But maybe he finally got Leoshi.

Admission to the show is $10 (less than you would pay to get into the fair if he was performing there). To get you in the mood for the show, below is a list of ’90s hip hop one-hit wonders, including Skee-Lo.
