Celio Skilz and CDBaby.com Team Up to Support the American Red Cross Hurricane Katrina Disaster Relief Fund

Celio Skilz storms up the charts while donating proceeds to victims of Hurricane Katrina.

(PRWEB) September 3, 2005 -- Celio Skilz has committed to giving his portion of the proceeds from his debut album, "The Cost of Being Me" to the Red Cross.

For a mere $10, customers can purchase Celio's CD. $6 of each CD sold go directly to the Red Cross. The CD package includes a Limited Edition Clear Cover (never done by anyone before) and and personally autographed CD.

C. Skilz, a rap artist from California, has managed to create a buzz with his critically acclaimed debut album, The Cost of Being Me. His blend of bi-coastal beats mixed with straight forward, witty lyrics has allowed his fans to identify with him.

With subject matters on The Cost of Being Me jumping from facing ones inner demons (on Self Defense), to addressing fools ruining parties by getting too drunk (on F*ck the Party Up), the themes are what everyday folks deal with. But dont think that normality makes him slouch on lyrics. Celio Skilzs last name speaks for itself on Theyve Been Waiting. With She Used to Love Me, C. Skilz allows Hip-Hop, in feminine form, to vent her frustration about her so-called fans, in an answer to Commons I Used to Love H.E.R. This album has some of the best beats Ive ever done, says DJ Rek, who produced all but one track on the possible classic. We tried to not make any fillers.

Celio Skilz originally started out as a ghostwriter in the late 80s for his twin brothers, while in a group called DTC (DUBB TRUBB CREW). He now performs with local sensations such as, the ICONS, K CEE Legendary, and Regg Henny. He has participated in opening up for major acts in his San Diego hometown, including Mos Def, LL COOL J, Little Brother, and KRS ONE. CSkilz appears on the Dame Hustle/MixxNuttz mixtape series. He has worked internationally with artists such as Universal Records artist, PeeZee. He has further credits through helping fellow rappers with marketing, managing, and grooming.
