Skam Dust, the original cat caller…his reputation precedes him. The infamous New York hip hop and hardcore legend might be known for his larger than life personality just as much as his on (and off) stage antics, and high energy shows and hard hitting music. What many of you might not know is that he is also a father. I didn’t know what to expect when he agreed to do the feature, but the result was humbling. What you get is a look inside a really good dude and a great dad. Take a minute and get to know the man, the myth, the legend, Skam Dust!
1. Tell us about what you do, who you are, and how you balance your career with being a dad?
When I got your email requesting an interview about being a father, it took me by surprise I never expected this cause I rarely talk about my kids in public & I never post their photos on any media.
I did mention them once in one of my songs & that’s as far as it goes regarding my kids , I keep that private.
But I figure maybe it’s time to shed light on this part of my life, as you may or may not know I’m Skam Dust, a multi-media artist & well know for my music videos & catcalling video that went viral.
2. What does being a modern-day dad mean to you?
Being a modern day dad is not easy , there is many things to worry about, a dad has got to be 4 steps a head this day & age. Our society is not so simple anymore compared to when I was a kid. So you got to adjust with the times.
3. How did becoming a father change your life?
Being a father changed my life in many way the first thing that pops in my head is that it kept me alive in a sense that I was wild & crazy before the kids. Once I became a father I chilled out & became aware of the dangers I put myself in, so I put a stop to that. In short my kids saved my life.
4. Whats the greatest part about being a dad?
The greatest part of being a dad is the love my kids share with me, it’s 100% organic.
5. Can you share a funny story about being a father?
You ask me about any funny stories, & I can’t think of one, but I can tell you this when we are together we are all happy, no sad faces over here.
6. What advice can you give any new father out there?
The advice I can share is sort of endless, but the goal is to inspire them & keep them smiling, try not to introduce them to X-box or a smart phone, hold out as much as you can & most importantly look in their eyes & say I love you & kiss them a few times a day.
Thanks so much man! It was am absolute honor to have you do our feature. Really appreciate you taking the time to share this with us. Keep it up man!
