2020 marked the 20th anniversary of the passing of legendary Houston-bred DJ Screw, an influential figure that changed the course of hip-hop with his signature “chopped & screwed” DJ technique.
‘Chopped and Screwed: The Final Mixtape’ is a film project providing a first-hand account of the legendary hip-hop icon, through never-before-seen footage provided by his family and estate, cameos from prominent artists influenced by Screw’s music, as well as personal stories from family and close friends.
Unbeknownst to most, George Floyd was a member of DJ Screw’s “Screwed Up Click” and was consulting with the film’s director prior to his death. The film explores the inextricable links between social injustice and the music industry, told from the perspective of those afflicted by it, resulting in a powerful and timely social commentary.
Chopped and Screwed: The Final Mixtape is directed by multi-platinum music producer and songwriter, Isaac Yowman, and led by the Executive Producer of Life Below Zero (six-time Emmy award winning series) and the creators of the Netflix sensation Hip Hop Evolution (International Emmy and Peabody Award).
Investors in the film will be participating in a Revenue Sharing Note, receiving distributions if and when the film is sold or distributed.
