Chopped? Screwed? Onward upward internet music!

Search for the word “chopped” or “screwed” on gnutella right now and a new and wonderful musical form will enter your life. Here’s a visual explanation:

Regular mainstream hip hop:
This is hip hop

Mainstream hip hop, screwed:
Thiiss iss hiiip hopp (muuch slower)

Screwed and chopped:
Thiiss is-is hip-hip hopp (certain words and sounds repeat unexpectedly)

And this is going to sound really geeky, but it’s totally the best music to write blog posts to. If any of this music runs into legal trouble for being a [begin nasal lawyer voice] “unauthorized derivative work” [end] I would love to go to bat for it. Just test me, I will!
