Oh yeah, back in the early 2000’s i used to get an occasional “screw” version of a hip hop track,

where you drop the pitch by an octave, and add it as a bonus track.

there's a great section about Chopped and Screwed on the new series of Netflix original Hip Hop Evolution. Great insight into mad production and codeine's effects...

DJ Screw and Screwed Up Clique were our clients.
that's where that came from.

Purple Drank and Gangsta Lean? oh yeah.

From Destiny's Child / Beyoncé to Chamillionaire to Geto Boyz to 8Ball & MJG, Trinity Garden Cartel, Bushwick Bill, Big Mike, Bun B, Baby Beesh, South Park Mexican, etc... this was the forge from which the Dirty South came and changed everything.

It was a zoo... lol so many stories

but it was also a magical time when every element needed to break loads of acts was in place and hitting on all cylinders.

Talent - gobs of it & good, so many charted artists not listed above
Distribution - friendly huge distributor who would fund indie projects
Promotion - street teams who knew their shiznits all over the country
Radio - 2 different stations wanting the same demographic would break anything we brought them, friendly competition because all knew we were building something big
Touring - easy to book when you're all over the radio in the places you wanted to play and ppl asking for it.

all of it, right place, right time.

here's a quick story: Mike Dean literally lived in the upstairs loft at Digital Services for a few months.
Nonstop production. Nonstop circus. Nonstop Billboard chart rankings.
He was just one of the many R&B producers working there.

Never mind ZZ Top and Andy Johns were around the shop then too. Everyone dug the interaction with each other.
Where do you think the ZZ version of "25 Lighters" came from ?
