Skam Dust / Bio

Skam Dust from the womb of Skarhead, is a thunderbolt of terror, internationally known, locally loved and hated; he is at his best sabotaging the stage. Your favorite hero got his start from day one in the streets of Corona Queens, here is where Skam and his brothers Nom, MQ, Hoya Roc and his first crew "KIDS CREW" was launched from. In the mid-'90's when Skam was on the lam, Lord Ezec aka Danny Diablo invited him to get out of town and go on a U.S. tour with his band Skarhead.

After this legendary Skarhead tour, Lord Ezec suggested that Skam should start a band and then not too long after with the help of Sub Zero & Madball Son Of Skam was born !! But this excitement was short lived after 3 years the band dismantled. Skam Dust was destined to rock the mic and stir up chaos so he came back to the music business years later when he received a phone call and support from Danny Diablo. Skam: "With out the help of Ezec the Skam Dust project would not have happened".

In the words of Skam Dust:
"My lyrics tell my story in the most explicit way possible. These stories are informed by who I am and where I grew up, known to many as Spaghetti Park, a tuff Italian neighborhood, with many characters and people you dont want to fuck with.

I recall a time in my youth when crack cocaine and graffiti was on a rise and NYC was under a city-wide blackout which added to the terror already set from The 44 killer, otherwise known as The Son Of Sam. My lyrics reminisce about my experience of days spent taking train rides around this city, hanging out all hours of the night in Corona and riding with my Dad who worked as a (yellow) cab driver. Today I write to bring my New York City experience to life. As I say in "Five Borough Manhunt": "If the streets could talk, you wouldn't want to walk it / Eyes and hearts have been taken by the pocket." To understand more listen to my music & check out my videos".

Fast forward to 2010 where Skam Dust is ready to bring you his first full length album "Corona Drug Bust" with a whole bunch of new tunes as well as the classic Son Of Skam tracks! The title track and lead single has guest vocals from long time friend Freddy Madball and the video they shot also features Damian Burnz and Peter Greene... Danny Diablo aka Lord Ezec (Skarhead, Crown Of Thornz), Grizz Rock (Ruff Ryders, Shotblockers), Karl Buechner (Earth Crisis) all laid out guest verses on Skam's latest effort... This is true thug-core straight from “The Rotten Apple!!!”. Skam Dust is ready to rock!
