From Where?? is the debut album by underground Hip Hop artist Mad Skillz, now known as Skillz. The album was praised for its strong lyrical content and production, however, suffered from low sales, possibly due to being released the same day as 2Pac's All Eyez On Me and The Fugees's The Score. Producers for the album included Jay Dee, The Beatnuts, Buckwild, Large Professor, and DJ Clark Kent. The singles "The Nod Factor" and "Move Ya Body" received moderate radio and video airplay.

Donnie Lewis, (born June 2, 1974) also known as Skillz, or Mad Skillz is an American rapper known for his acclaimed 1996 album From Where??, a reference to his origins in Virginia, not a New York City or Los Angeles rapper. He is also known for his yearly "Rap Ups," which he has done annually since 2002 (except in 2013 which was only based on sports).

Unfortunately, Mad Skillz superior skills as a freestyle and punchline rapper do not always transfer well to wax, so the album can be a bit hit-and-miss. Nonetheless, From Where?? is an enjoyable album and worth a mention if only because Mad Skillz doesn’t deserve being slept on. Top tracks: Doin Time In The Cypha All In It Extra Abstract Skillz Nod Factor. 39. Lil Kim - Hardcore. You wanna be this Queen B, but ya can’t be, That’s why you’re mad at me.
