The Codex Exclusive Chopped and Screwed Albums

History of Chopped and Screwed Music

Chopped and Screwed music, originating in the early '90s in Houston, Texas, by DJ Screw Robert Earl Davis Jr., is a unique style characterized by slowing down the tempo of tracks and adding effects like beat skipping and record scratching, creating a deep, hypnotic sound. This genre, deeply rooted in Houston's hip-hop scene, symbolized the city's culture and quickly spread through DJ Screw's mixtapes. Despite DJ Screw's death in 2000, the genre has lived on, evolving with variations like "slowed and chopped" and "chop not slop" by artists like OG Ron C and The Chopstars, maintaining its original essence while exploring new sounds. Today, chopped and screwed music remains influential, representing a significant part of Houston's musical heritage and continuing to impact listeners worldwide.
