Last Night: Screwed Up Click at Warehouse Live

Lil' Keke, E.S.G., Big Pokey Warehouse Live June 27, 2012

June 27 isn't an official holiday in Houston -- yet. But the date remains the preferred occasion for formally celebrating the life, career and influence of Robert Davis, our beloved DJ Screw. On Wednesday, the remnants of the Screwed Up Click, the rap crew he helped make famous, came together to relive classic rhymes and pay tribute to the local legend.

The love for Screw hung in the air like blunt smoke all night inside Warehouse Live's cavernous ballroom, which was legitimately filled with more than a few hip-hop heads who couldn't have been more than ten years old when the DJ released his wildly influential "June 27" tape in 1996. Pretty cool to see this music passed down.
