Michael would frequently accompany him to the studios. As a result, at the age of four, Skies entered his first recording studio. When his father was at school, he was severely burned and injured in an explosion.

Skies earned a diploma from Waynesboro Area High School in Pennsylvania. After hearing their music, he became a huge fan of Lil Wayne and 50 Cent. After being inspired by Lil Wayne, he adopted the stage name Lil Skies. After graduating from high school, Skies enrolled at the Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania.
