Skam Dust - Corona Drug Bust and more...

Skam Dust, from the womb of Skarhead, is a thunderbolt of terror, internationally known and locally hated; he is here to sabotage the stage. Your favorite hero got his start when he was on the lam in the mid-'90s touring with the infamous Skarhead getting a better taste of N.Y.H.C., partnering in crime with Lord Ezec from Jackson Heights. Skam was destined to rock the mic and stir up chaos in the underground with his brothers from the world famous D.M.S. Crew...

After the legendary Skarhead tour, Lord Ezec told Skam he should start a band and then Son Of Skam was born!!! They did a few things here and there but never really went full throttle with the music. With three other singers in the group Skam needed to do his own shit and show the world how this crazy Cuban/Dominican destroys the mic.

In the words of Skam:

"My lyrics tell my story in the most explicit way possible. These stories are informed by who I am and where I grew up: the Bermuda Triangle of NY called Corona Queens and known to many as Spaghetti Park. These streets are full characters and this is where my inner circle and story began.

I recall a time when the police and the public were in a state of panic caused by the 44 Killer, otherwise known as the Son Of Sam, he was on the loose and filling the city with terror. Meanwhile NYC was undergoing a city-wide blackout, it was wild. I share moments like this and speak about the days when crack cocaine was destroying lives and graffiti was on every subway train.

My lyrics reminisce about the days spent riding shotgun with my dad, who worked many hours as a NYC yellow cabbie. Through these rides I glimpsed a world outside of my own neighborhood. I met some real New Yorkers and heard their stories; authentic taxi-cab confessions. 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 the music and check my new video."

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!
