Mixtape Wed's #7 - DJ Screw

After the unfortunate passing of Pimp C yesterday, I decided to keep it in Texas for this weeks edition of Mixtape Wednesdays and focus on the late great DJ Screw.

Back in the mid to late 90's I remember hearing alot about him and how he was chopping and screwing records... I was always intrigued by this but it wasn't until a few years ago when I actually got a chance to listen to some of his mixtapes. If you're not up on him, dude is a legend in the South and is responsible for the entire chop & screwed movement... Now before u check the mixes posted, check out the two video's (below) of him spinnin and explaining how it all happened... This shit is history right here...
