Secret Agent 23 Skidoo
GRAMMY-Winning hip hop artist, Secret Agent 23 Skidoo combines the excitement of hip hop with the magical world of childhood. With sophisticated instrumental funk and positive, witty wordplay, he has earned a loyal national following. His latest album, Infinity Plus One, took home music’s biggest prize at the 2017 GRAMMY Awards for Best Children’s Album of the Year and in a heartfelt speech, he dedicated the award to his daughter, who’s been rapping at his side since she was just five years old. Infinity Plus One takes kids into outer space with “Glimmer” about a moth who flies to the moon, and “Tastes Like Space” an exploration of the intergalactic destiny of Carl Sagan’s famous Gold Record. 23 Skidoo received a GRAMMY nomination in 2015 for The Perfect Quirk, a classic hip hop album spiced with Motown, reggae, club thump, blues and the occasional pirate shanty.
On stage, Skidoo’s live shows are alive with call-and-response anthems like his classic “Whatchya gotta be? / I gotta be ME!” and gravity defying moves from breakdancers that have the kids gasping in delight. Secret Agent 23 Skidoo creates unique and heartwarming party music that has garnered national awards, seven eight #1 hits on SiriusXM Global Radio and praise from TIME, NPR, USA Today and many others.
"Blending traditional hip-hop with garage rock and classic R&B influences, he encourages kids to embrace individuality. Through his music, he empowers kids to be themselves." – USA TODAY
