You can consider it the ultimate tribute to how DJ Screw irrevocably changed the sound of hip hop that his name has become a universally understood term for a production method as elemental as the slowing down of a sound or sample. Still, as Robert Davis's famous Screwed & Chopped method of manipulating vinyl has spread into the age of digital production, something of the spirit of his methods has been lost. Sure, a young artist like A$AP Rocky or Drake is paying homage to the originator when they rap in a voice that's been pitched down in ProTools to resemble the voices on a Screw tape, but it's not really the same thing.
