In partnership with Texas Monthly, Michael Hall's "The Slow Life and Fast Death of DJ Screw" is now available as an audio download, where the length and timeliness of a podcast meets the high-quality production of a full-length audio program.

He was one of the most influential cultural figures in Texas -- a generous godfather to a generation of rappers, an entrepreneur of Houston's mean streets, the master of a scene fueled by codeine cough syrup and hip-hop beats. When he overdosed in November at the age of 29, it was easy to dismiss him as yet another musician who succumbed to his own success. But the story of DJ Screw is more complicated than that.

MICHAEL HALL graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 1979 with a degree in government. He wrote for various publications, including Trouser Press, Third Coast Magazine, the Austin American-Statesman, and the Austin Chronicle. In 1997 he joined Texas Monthly, where he has won two Texas Gavel Awards from the State Bar of Texas and three Stephen Philbin Awards from the Dallas Bar Association. He was named the CRMA's Writer of the Year in 2015. Hall's stories have appeared in The Best American Magazine Writing, The Best American Sports Writing, The Best American Nonrequired Reading, Da Capo Best Music Writing, the New York Times, and Men's Journal. Hall is also a musician and has played in Austin bands such as Wild Seeds, the Setters, the Lollygaggers, and the Savage Trip.
