A new biographical series based on the life of Houston’s iconic DJ Screw is set to release this year for his 20 year memorial. Directed by multi-platinum record producer turned filmmaker Isaac “Chill” Yowman, the series All Screwed Up details the rise of DJ Screw and the musical revolution he pioneered with his “chopped and screwed” sound.
The Legendary DJ Screw (born Robert Earl Davis Jr.) had a compelling life as a ground-breaking DJ and inventor of a signature style that has transformed pop culture and music for two decades and spring-boarded the careers of some of the biggest names in hip hop. His slowed down chopped and screwed technique has been featured in Academy and Golden Globe award-winning films and on dozens of multi-platinum billboard chart-topping songs. Artists like Beyonce, Drake, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Travis Scott, and Kendrick Lamar have been influenced heavily by his pioneering sound.
The “All Screwed Up” press conference gave us insight on where the producers are headed mentally with this project. Attendees were also afforded the privilege of seeing DJ Screw’s sister accept his proclamation from the City of Houston for his contributions.
