DJ Screw made a huge difference in the way hip hop fans understood the sound. Local, exceptional, slowed down, Texan, and all that made a package that made his 90 minute tapes (TAPES fool!) a necessity. Screw died a few years back and what we have are memories of him.
This University of Houston librarian knows the deal — someone should swoop in and try to save all that history. The vinyl, the photos, and all the rest from the Screw lab should get archived, and shared with the public. Now it’s happening. Kick ass.
Check Rap Radar for some photos of the collection. RIP DJ Screw.
