SKEE TV on Cable

Now through 5 seasons on cable television featuring the biggest artists, athletes, and tastemakers in the world, SKEE TV was also the first place to bring artists like Kendrick Lamar, Post Malone, Kehlani, G-Eazy, and more to television.

“Unlike many DJs, who promote a hard-partying, anti-authority image, SKEE seems genuinely comfortable in his own skin, not conforming to stereotype. He was recently named a champion in the UN Foundation charities Girl Up and Nothing But Nets. This month, his company SKEEMATIC launched a social good campaign with AT&T to help give fans jobs. How many mainstream DJs volunteer with the UN or provide the kids that look up to them a foot in the door?”
