The Making Of Travis Scott’s “R.I.P. SCREW” With FKi 1st | Deconstructed
Travis Scott’s third studio album ‘ASTROWORLD’ is rife with tributes to his hometown of Houston. One notable example is the fourth track “R.I.P. SCREW,” which is dedicated to DJ Screw, founder of The Screwed Up Click and architect of Houston’s chopped and screwed sound. In addition to the song’s lyrics, Travis pays tribute to the Houston legend through its slowed-down beat. FKi 1st, who co-produced the track with Travis, spoke to Genius about how it all came together.
