DJ Screw, born Robert Earl Davis, Jr. (27 June 1971, Bastrop, Louisiana–16 november 2000), was a central figure in the Houston rap scene. His trademark was slowing down a song when he remixed it. This process is called 'screwing' a song. Slowing down the song was supposed to recreate the effect of recreationally using codeine, also known as syrup or sizurp.
His creations are hard to come by legally, but are still available at Screwed Up Records and Tapes on Cullen St. in Houston, Texas or on the screweduprecords.com website.
DJ Screw's most successful protogee is Z-ro who has released an average of 4 albums a year since 2000. Guerilla Maab is still holding down the SUC (Screwed Up Click) by releasing Screwed (SLAB'BED - Slow Loub And Bangin') versions of all their albums.
