DJay (Terrance Howard) is a street-smart Memphis hustler. Blessed with a gift for words he hasn't been able to harness, DJay lives in the shadows, scraping by through a dead-end life, his dreams buried, constantly out of reach. One day he runs into Key (Anthony Anderson), an old friend and sound engineer who holds out hope of making it big in the music biz. DJay decides to seize the moment. With help from Shelby (DJ Qualls), a church musician who owns a beat machine, DJay begins laying down tracks. His decision energizes those around him, and his friends lend themselves to his efforts. When DJay learns hip-hop heavy Skinny Black (Ludacris) is coming to Memphis, he puts all his hopes on one last hustle to unleash his flow.
