The Streets rapper MIKE SKINNER dismisses his previous drug and gambling problems as unimportant, because the death of his father in 2004 put his life in perspective. The DRY YOUR EYES hitmaker, who went off the rails in 2004 following the success of his first two albums and lost huge amounts of money to gambling, insists all other issues are insignificant. He says, "It's like, it's not a problem. After losing my dad, everything else is irrelevant."
