    Default Peak Dust?

    I don't think anyone in wu smoke dust anymore though I saw an unfortunate interview by ghost a year back that was suspicious.

    When so you think wutang was at peak dust?
    My vote is for 1999. Ghost and rza made alot of music around this time and i all went dog dick hard. I was listening to windpipe in the gym like damn. Motherfuckers were GONE. Bobby digital, ODB was on a rampage. Around the time the W dropped ghost looked really thin, and was rhyming his ass of.

    ghost's weight drop could or could not be connected to his type-1 diabetes condition. idk. he did state in an interview he stopped smoking joints in 2004 because of his medical condition

    rza, odb & holocaust were def on dust. not sure about ghost

    Ghost and meth were notorious in the industry. NORE has a story about method man passing a blunt to him and almost dying lol.

    I would say mid nineties was the peak. it seems thats when the references in the raps was the most

    I remember a few years back on here there was a article or something where somebody was talking about how much dust and mushrooms they used to do in the early years

    I'd guess 93-97. whatever times RZA was locked in his basement as a production hermit. especially the early Gravediggaz days

    'The meth' = weed
    Bobby digital was literally rza in an rkelly mask when he's high on dust lol, so I'd still vote for late 90s as the peak.

    Bobby Digital must have been the after effect.

    Lol. It's WELL known in the industry that Wu smoked Dust. Meth smoked Dust, Raekwon smoked dust, Ghost, U-God, Deck, MK, ODB, RZA..only one I'm not sure about is Gza. Cam'ron has a song "Come See Killa" where he states he sold Dust to Wu-Tang. Prodigy has a story in his book where he says him and Havoc was smoking with Ghost and Rae and it was dust in their blunts. RZA and ODB definitely smoked dust. And I'm gonna go with TSA, 97-99 is peak dust. Lord superb says in his interview dissing Ghost that they had more money after 97 so they had more money to get that shit. Rza was on mad dust during bobby digital era. Ghost was coming up with some of his most crazy rhymes during that time. U-God talks about him smoking dust in Rise of a fallen soldier. Deck has a song on Manifesto talking about him becoming a dust fiend. Raekwon stated in an interview he smoked dust. Like I said the only one i'm not sure about is Gza.

    I don't know about peak dust for how much they were on that shit but peak dust musically is definitely 1995
    Bushido is realised in the presence of death.
    This means choosing death whenever there is a choice between life and death.
    There is no other reasoning.
