DJ Screw - The Untold Story [full documentary]

Watch a 90 minute documentary on Houston's chopped & screwed originator.

DJ Screw (Robert Earl Davis Jr. that is) is arguably one of the most influential figures in modern music, inventing the chopped and screwed DJ technique, which started out as a regional craze, but has since grown to the point where one can’t really imagine there not being music built from slowed down, syrupy rhythms.

A ridiculously prolific artist, with over 200 tapes to his name alone (we can also perhaps thank him for making mixtapes such a vital force), this documentary talks you through his life up until his early death in 2000 at the age of 29, and includes interviews with those close to him – including members of his Screwed Up Click – and footage of the man himself both at work and rest.
