Without DJ Screw there would be no Houston hip-hop. Period. Houston’s unofficial nickname is Screwston for a good reason. It all started with Robert Earl Davis Jr. and his desire to slow the world down. He propelled a simple art form to unfathomable heights. Screw left us 9 years ago today, but not without leaving an indelible mark on the game. Peep a sample of Screw’s game-changing sound below. Lean is optional.
