The trailer to Chopped and Screwed: the Final Mixtape, a documentary highlighting the life of late Houston legend DJ Screw has just landed. It’s been a little over two decades since DJ Screw‘s death, but the artist’s distinctive chopped-and-screwed style continues to influence today’s music, with artists like Travis Scott and A$AP Rocky taking inspiration and directly mimicking DJ Screw’s sound.

Chopped and Screwed: the Final Mixtape examines DJ Screw’s legacy, detailing his battle with racial oppression, police brutality, on top of the musical legacy he’s left behind. Filmmaker Isaac Yowman set out to interview people who were close to the DJ, like family members and his fiancee, among others. The documentary also brings in a handful of well-known artists — from Rick Ross to Bun B to Megan Thee Stallion — to talk about how the DJ inspires their work.

The documentary also touches on Screw’s friendship with George Floyd, who was a part of DJ’s collective Screwed Up Click. “This film will show the power of a man that prevailed over the adversities that blanketed his community and used his experiences to create a legacy that lives on today. Screw’s impact on southern culture is no secret, but his influence on music globally is a story untold,” says Yowman about the documentary.
