Skillz (formerly known as Mad Skillz) is an underground rapper from Virginia. He is critically acclaimed for his whimsical lyrical
style, and has "ghostwritten" songs for various rappers, including P. Diddy, Mase and Will Smith. He controversially addressed his
ghostwriting past on the 2000 single, "Ghostwriter", which he is probably most known for. In 2012, after over two decades of
building a remarkable career in the rap scene, he decided to retire from the rap scene.
