DJ Screw Biopic “All Screwed Up” Series Trailer Released 20 Years After His Death

The founding father of the infamous Houston chopped and screwed era will finally get the recognition in a new biopic released about his life. “All Screwed Up” is written by Shannan E. Johnson and Isaac “Chill” Yowman. On Monday (Jan. 20th), a 70-second clip was released called “All Screwed Up,” under the direction of Houston’s Isaac “Chill” Yowman. Reportedly, the project is based on the life of DJ Screw and his Screwed Up Click crew. DJ Screw is played by Rosha Washington, an up-and-coming actor out of Louisiana.

The trailer shows the many obstacles that Screw had to go through to become the innovator of the chopped and screwed era in the heart of it’s birth place in Texas which is still heard in music today. In addition, the trailer shows the many dramatic points in the young Screw’s journey: from crosstown rivals to police harassment, to building a music empire around talented gangstas, the situations he pushed through created the sound that proved to live on beyond his life.

This year makes 20 years since Screw passed away from a codeine overdose in his studio. He released more than 200 mixtapes and was the leader of the Screwed Up Click before his death in 2000.

The film stars Washington as DJ Screw and the cast also includes Paigion Walker, Kyle Mosely, Marqus Clae, Phill Wade, Dean Will, Omete Anassi, Diamond Lyons, LaShae Boone, and Rodrick Randall. Sidney Walker, Miriam Heads, Michelle Williams, Lil’ Keke & Derrick Dixon serve as the film’s producers.
