3 'N The Mornin' Part Two (Explicit)
by DJ Screw
Released: Apr 1996
Label: Bigtyme - SoSouth
Among the hundred or so mixes and dozen or so compilations DJ Screw produced during his life, 3 N The Mornin' is widely regarded as the best entry point. If you're familiar with the "screwed" vocal effects of post-millennial pop, then prepare to hear the real deal. Screw blends remixes of Mack 10's "Foe Life" and 20-2-Life's "Servin' A Duce" with raps from his Screwed Up Click, like Big Moe's "Sippin' Codeine" and Al-D's "No Way Out," into a hallucinatory phantasm. Pocked with frequent references to "Smokin' and Leanin'," this gangsta-funk dribbles and curdles into a syrupy drawl.
