Tough times and a strong desire to move from a less desirable lifestyle, led the rapper to find ways to channel his talents which made for good hip-hop material. "SKINNY'S" poems shined the light on him as a star in the making and from there... he started rapping his poems instead of reciting them. "SKINNY" quickly realized that he was expressing what many of his peers were going through in the city and began to grow a loyal fan base. As he received more airplay, his fan base grew in an explosive amount on the Streets of Hollywood, Florida. "SKINNY" started out using his given name, "Unique", but fans consistently called him "SKINNY". So that name was adopted. Earlier in his career, he recorded rhymes in several studios. "SKINNY", over the years, has diligently put in the time and as such, has built a fan base. Whether that fan base stems from recording for people what they want to hear or performing live, one thing is for sure, "SKINNY" is here to stay.
