In remembrance of DJ Screw, we highlight 10 of his chopped and screwed masterpieces.

Houston is a well-known hip-hop hub, and that's largely due to the music of DJ Screw. By pioneering the chopped and screwed remixing method, Screw is one of the first dudes to make really slow rap music cool. It's safe to say that the music of Texans like UGK would be different if it weren't for his legacy, but it's also likely that modern rap-- the A$AP Rocky, Drake, Migos of the world-- would have different styles as well.

Born forty-four years ago today, DJ Screw (real name Robert Earl Davis Jr.) was able to alter the trajectory of hip-hop forever, and so it's important to give him some respect. To celebrate his birthday, we're delivering a list of Screw's 10 elite cuts.
