TWS: How and when did you cop the name Skam Dust? Skam Dust: Back early on I used to write Shot then at 14 I came up with Skam cause I was always scamming, a little after I added the Dust after my favorite writer Angel Dust who was also a native of Corona . When I was out hitting the 7 train lay up’s, bombing the inside cars with my brother Nom who used to write Trek at that time & with some other writers like Dem, Mkue, Jo3, Look & Shame. Angel Duster was out doing fat throw up’s & big piece’s on the outside cars. He was a master street bomber who inspired me & got my respect from the very beginning. Angel Duster Quick & DONDI were my favorite writers.
