In 2000, Skillz dropped an album for the legendary indie hip-hop label, Rawkus Records. The project featured the likes of Missy Elliot and CeeLo. By that time, Skillz had also been working as a ghostwriter, penning tracks for stars like Diddy and Will Smith.
Portable Phone Charger
“This is a must-have whenever I travel. It’s a no-brainer.”
Backup Hard Drive
“I have a drive that I back up with Carbon Copy Cloner so if I ever have a computer problem I can plug the drive into any computer and still play a set. And not only will I have all my music on the computer I’m playing with, but it will also look exactly like mine.”
“I’m old school in this manner: sometimes I actually like to write things down that come to me. I could put them in my notes on my phone, but there’s just something about seeing them in my actual handwriting. It’s everything from mix ideas, transitions, bookings, and things I have planned.”
“I like to capture moments and not be intrusive at the same time. The GoPro HERO3+ has never let me down for pictures and video.”
“They just work for me. They’re lighter, and they fit in my bag better than the 12 inches. They also stand up to normal wear and tear. I love them.”

Rapper, producer, and DJ MAD SKILLZ has dropped a 20-minute open-format mix for the DJcity Podcast.
The Virginia native gained notoriety in the mid-’90s as a rapper with his album, From Where??? The project featured production from legends like J Dilla and Large Professor, and included the Billboard-charting single, “The Nod Factor.” Its B-side, “Skillz in ’95,” became an underground favorite.
In 1998, MAD SKILLZ was featured on two tracks on Timbaland‘s album, Tim’s Bio: “To My” with Nas and “Wit’ Yo’ Bad Self.” He has since released six solo albums, including an LP on the legendary hip-hop label, Rawkus Records.
