DJ Screw - Chapter 230: Payin Dues '95 (1995)


Payin Dues is a very underrated DJ Screw tape; I appreciate how straight forward Screw is in transporting the mood of this set. Like most of his sets from 1995, this is one of those tapes that is more smoked-out than psychedelic, and that definitely fits my personal taste more. No, there aren't any freestyle epics or super emotional subtexts on number 230, this is just golden-age Screw jamming and demonstrating a well-deserved come up. I'd imagine this would sound incredible early in the morning after coming back from a party or concert or something.
