As I slow the beat down,

Meaning

DJ Screw’s music was characterized by a slowed down, chopped up sound. One story of the origin of the genre was that when some of the boys were flipping down the boulevard in a pick up, the batteries on the boom box died, thus slowing down the cassette before eventually stopping the tape. They all loved the idea of it, and it was eventually reproduced, many, many times, with Screw scratching on the tables, calling it “chopped and screwed.”
