Video: DJ Screw Biopic ‘All Screwed Up’ Official Trailer

Although I was a fan of and listened to music that was chopped & screwed in the 90’s & 2000’s, I don’t think I fully appreciated the style until my late 20’s early 30’s. Fast forward to the present, my DJ Screw online music station gets a lot of play.

To my surprise, the late Houston legend has a biopic being released called ‘All Screwed Up”. The movie chronicles the life Screw and his signature style of music.

All Screwed Up is a compelling new series centered around the legendary DJ Screw, born Robert Earl Davis Jr. Not only was Screw a groundbreaking DJ, he invented a signature style that has transcended more than 2 decades of pop culture and spring-boarded the career of dozens.

His slow pitched “Chopped & Screwed” technique has been featured in Academy Award & Golden Globe Award-winning films and on dozens of multi-platinum, Billboard topping songs. After discovering his signature sound in the early 90s, Robert’s popularity landed him in the middle of police harassment and a violent local beef. This dispute between two sides of America’s 4th largest city would go on to cause one of the most infamous divides in the South’s urban culture.
