DJ Michael "5000" Watts caught onto the Chopped and Screwed method in 1995. He started his own label, Swishahouse. It wasn't until the 2000's, that DJ Michael Watts gained some fame. He signed Slim Thug, Paul Wall, Khamillionaire, Mike Jones, and Magnificient to the Swishahouse label. Countless Chopped and Screwed mixtapes of big hit radio songs were slowed down. Along with big names involving themselves on the mixtapes, the southern rap style from Houston was on the verge of blowing up by 2003. Late 2003, Three 6 Mafia's "Da Unbreakables" was remixed by Watts. It was a sure hit due to Three 6 Mafia's infectious production from the DJ Paul and Juicy J. Once the 2 worlds of Three 6 Mafia's crunk music and the Chopped and Screwed music collided, countless ears started to listen what the city of Houston had to say.
In mid-2004, Mike Jones, Slim Thug, and Paul Wall teamed up on a compilation CD from Watts called "The Day Hell Broke Loose Pt. 2". The song was entitled, "Still Tippin". The regualar version of the song became a major hit commercially. What people did not know was that a Chopped and Screwed version was making it way through the stores and on the Internet. A video was also made for the slowed down version. Major airplay came to both version of the song. The song was subsequently released on Mike Jones' album, "Who is Mike Jones?" in early 2005.
Currently, big name southern rappers are releasing 2 versions of their albums, one regular and the other "Chopped and Screwed". Such artists such as Ludacris, 8 Ball & MJG, T.I. Lil Wayne, Big Tymers, David Banner, Lil Wyte, Three 6 Mafia, Paul Wall, Mystikal, and Juvenile have had their regular albums chopped and screwed up.
This new form of music has even spawned a software music editor called Screwlab. It slows the speed down of a record and allows for chopping and recording of any mp3-coded song. More info can be found at www.Screwlab.com.
