Dust to Dust is an album by former 3rd Bass members, Pete Nice (Prime Minister Pete Nice) and DJ Richie Rich (Daddy Rich). The album was released on April 27, 1993 for Def Jam Recordings and was produced by Pete Nice, DJ Richie Rich, KMD and Psycho Les. Dust to Dust was released a year after the breakup of 3rd Bass and featured many disses toward their former bandmate MC Serch. Dust to Dust found limited success, peaking at #171 on the Billboard 200, #50 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and #3 on the Top Heatseekers. Two singles were released: "Rat Bastard" and "Kick The Bobo," both apparent disses against former bandmate MC Serch. The video for "Rat Bastard" starts out as a recreation of a scene from the 1987 film The Untouchables, with Pete Nice beating an MC Serch lookalike to death with a baseball bat. This album also marks the professional debut of Indie Rap artist, Cage Kennylz.
