UH library to receive late DJ’s discography for research

Over 1,000 albums created and owned by the late Houston icon DJ Screw have been donated to the University of Houston libraries.

The music, which was donated by Screw’s father to the John and Rebecca Moores Endowed Library Fund, will be made available for research in 2013.

DJ Screw, whose given name was Robert Earl Davis, Jr., was a major influence on the Houston rap/DJ scene and creator of the Chopped and Screwed technique. He died from a heart attack in November 2000.
