Screw insisted throughout his life that the “Screw tapes” weren’t necessarily about sipping on syrup. It was about matching the flow of Houston, whether you were sipping or not. Screw originally wanted to slow down his records so that when he was smoking he and his boys could bob their heads real slow (pause) to the beat and understand what these dudes were talking about. He once broke down the logic behind it, saying, “You know, when you smoke weed, you laid-back and it slows you down. You don’t react fast, so the music sounded better slowed down.”
