As Cross Rhythms radio listeners and readers will know, Eddy 'Rawsrvnt' Puyol, hails from West Palm Beach, Florida and is known for his growling dirty south-style rhymes and his ability to bring a worship dimension into hip-hop. Chopped and screwed is a turntable technique that sees the DJ cutting up, scratching and manipulating original tunes and breaks to slow down the tempo to 60-70bpm. This project demonstrates the technique effortlessly with the combined talents of Rawsrvnt and DJ Primo. Tracks have been taken from several Rawsrvnt projects including 'Makin' Moves' and 'Breathe'. Tracks like "Go" and "Romans 12" almost enter a new hip-hop style territory while other tracks preserve their original flavas like "Take Me". We end out with "Tears 4 Peers" and "Hold On", two more tracks brilliantly cut up, chopped and screwed. Pretty much a first for the 'gospel' hip-hop community and a great showcase for the art.
