Writer-director Craig Brewer's powerful script and taut storytelling infuse this urban drama with a sense of urgency, authenticity and searing desperation that earned it awards from the Sundance Film Festival and an Oscar nomination for star Terrence Howard, who plays DJ, a Memphis pimp with dreams of becoming a rap music star. DJ's secret: he's actually a driven, talented composer and singer of songs about life on the streets. Anthony Anderson, DJ Qualls, Paula Jai Parker, Taraji P. Henson, Taryn Manning, Ludacris and Isaac Hayes costar.
