The legendary DJ Screw, R.I.P.
DJ Screw

The University of Houston Libraries announced Tuesday, a landmark acquisition of rap music, the DJ Screw Sound Recordings Collection. This collection includes more than 1,000 vinyl records owned by the late DJ Screw (Robert Earl Davis Jr., 1971-2000), originator of the "chopped and screwed" genre that helped define the Houston hip-hop sound.... ...Currently being cataloged, the collection will be open for use by researchers in 2013. From March 19 - Sept. 21, 2012, selections from the collection will be on display in the M.D. Anderson Library as part of the exhibit DJ Screw and the Rise of Houston Hip Hop...

... which is the first in a series of exhibits leading up to DJ Screw and the Rise of Witch House (just kidding).

That's a good pickup, though I'd much rather they archive the man's music itself. The sticky copyright angle of distributing DJ mixes would probably be subverted if it were in a private collection. At present, it's a little tough finding some of the 248 different albums at any given time, even were you to go to the Screw Shop.

And more importantly, motherfuck Witch House. Shitty knock offs of Screw should not be tolerated. I mean, Salem? Seriously? What in the fuck is wrong with people?
