The Skills Dat Pay da Bills is the debut studio album by American rapper Positive K, released in 1992 on Island Records. The album was produced by a group of relatively unknown and upcoming producers (with exception of DJ Jazzy Jay and Big Daddy Kane), and has only one guest appearance, performed by Grand Daddy I.U..

The album peaked at #168 on the Billboard 200, and #50 on the Top R&B/HIp-Hop Albums charts.  Despite positive reviews by critics of the album, it is best remembered for the hugely successful "I Got a Man" and Positive K is often referred to as a one-hit wonder. It remains as Positive K's last album.
