DJay, a very smalltime streetwise Memphis hustler and pimp, lives a dead-end life at the fringes of society. Though DJay has always had a way with words, that gift has long been misused--employed to keep his 'girls' producing. A chance encounter with Key, a sound engineer, spurs DJay to find a voice and realize his long-buried dreams. Chasing his musical dream transforms DJay, but opening the door to success demands one last hustle--if he's ever going to flow.

Good movie. Terence Howard is very good. Harsh subject matter but that's life.

I fully enjoyed this movie. Terrance Howard and his fellow actors in this film prove without a doubt that they are master's of their craft. D Jay, is a Pimp in a southern ghetto who aspires to be a famous rapper. This movie shows the unsavory things that occur in the lives of socioeconomic deprived communities all over this country, while maintaining a believable storyline. Even though the story is full of deplorable acts, you witness the struggles each of these characters endure to carve out a better life for themselves.

Unless you like black urban life filled with foul language, rap, drugs, and violence, you probably won't care for this one.

"I think that it would intrigue contemptous emotion in people who live such a life!"

This wasn't the worst movie I've ever seen, it is far from being good. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.
Just another shootem up bangem up move. Very predictable.

This is one of those movies I picked up on a whim thinking it might be decent, and I was shocked at just how good it ended up being. This movie is well scripted, and all the acting is quite impressive. I would recommend this to fans of urban dramas like Boys In The Hood.

It took me a while to get into this film and it did seem to be full of cliches, but the ending makes it justified.

Key: There are two types of people: those that talk the talk and those that walk the walk. People who walk the walk sometimes talk the talk but most times they don't talk at all, 'cause they walkin'. Now, people who talk the talk, when it comes time for them to walk the walk, you know what they do? They talk people like me into walkin' for them.
