"Hustle and Flow," which was shot in Memphis and scored at Ardent Studios, has been nominated for two Academy Awards: Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role (Terrence Howard) and Best Original Song ("It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp", Music and Lyric by Jordan Houston, Cedric Coleman and Paul Beauregard).

In the film, the character DJay is a small-time pimp and drug dealer who dreams of stardom in the world of hip-hop music. Despite the criminal trappings of his day-to-day existence, DJay has an inner determination and a belief in his own talent that leads him to parlay a meeting with an old high school friend, now a sound engineer, into a chance for a better life.
