All I Wanna Do Is Bang Screw

Robert Earl Davis, Jr., AKA DJ Screw, would have been 44 years old yesterday. That just blows my mind. Screw is still alive all over the Houston area. On any given day, at any random stop light, if you hear a thumping bass, roll down your window and you’re probably gonna hear a Screw song. I know I’m not gangster and I don’t sip drank, but I have always loved his music. No matter who is putting down the lyrics, you can tell a Screw song apart from anyone’s. His sound was unique and he worked his butt off to keep it fresh. In such a short lifetime, DJ Screw made enough music that they’ll probably be putting out new music of his long after I’m gone. If that ain’t rock & roll, I don’t know what is.
