DJ Screw was a remarkably influential hip-hop DJ from Houston, TX, who created a signature "chopped and screwed" sound by slowing down the pitch on his turntables, thereby creating unique mix tapes known as "Screw Tapes". The result was a thick, vaguely menacing sound that mirrored the exaggerated sense of time and space brought on by "sippin syrup" - drinking codeine cough syrup for kicks, a popular pastime on the Texas hip-hop scene. While Screw became a larger-than-life figure in the underground hip hop music scene, he was rarely seen or interviewed. The Soldiers United for Cash documentary managed to document his life, his music, and his crew just prior to DJ Screw's (Robert Earl Davis, Jr.) untimely death on November 16, 2000.
